Siilihai 2.0 released with TapaTalk support

Last weekend version 2.0 of Siilihai client was released. It contains a single major change that has been requested most often: support for TapaTalk forum API.

TapaTalk is supported by over 40000 forums so it is possible that your favourite forum already has it.

The client looks almost the same as 1.3, but there have been major changes under the hood and on the server side. This may cause some unstability compared to previous versions so please report any bugs you find.

 - Support for different forum providers. This means we can have parsed forums (requiring no support for server) and TapaTalk which requires a plugin to be installed on server.
 - TapaTalk is still experimental but seems to work fine on tested forums.
 - New "subscribe to forum" dialog which allows any URL to be entered. Siilihai automatically checks which provider to use for the URL.
 - Sync optimizations & various bugfixes.

 - 2.0 is available for Ubuntu and Windows only. If you can compile and package a Qt application for OS X or other Linux/BSD distributions such as Debian, Fedora and SUSE please contact us. We want to support as many OS's and distributions as possible but we need community support.
 - Mobile version is still using old code and will be upgraded soon.

Coming soon:
 - Authentication support for TapaTalk forums.
 - Upgrade Mobile version to use latest code.

If you are a forum owner, please install the free TapaTalk plugin from http://www.tapatalk.com/.

Have fun!!


  1. Excellent work buddy, getting much better now!

  2. Looking forward to the mobile version, hopefully with greatly improved UI too, then it will be time to pay/donate.
