Dear all,

Will Alvarez and the rest of the Turpial developers have added more functionality to their awesome lightwight twitter client, however tha tcode is not ready for primetime yet. I have packaged their latest development milestone, Turpial 1.3.2 in a separate ppa , The Turpial Development PPA. lots of interesting new stuff in it and definetelly worth a try.

  • New and secure authentication management wizzard from within Turpial.
  • Support for Spanish, English, Portuguese, Simplified Chinese, Taiwanese, French and more.
  • Added option to reply all
  • Preferences button in the login screen
  • Proxy support for Twitter’s API
  • General coding improvement
  • Added support for SigueMiLink in the URL shortener services
  • Spellcheck
  • Added dialog to add friends (friend list and name filter)
  • Added support for Yfrog, img.ly, mobypicture and twitgoo for uploading images.
  • Added support for zi.ma and ur1.ca URL shortner services
  • Turpial service API optimized, all services centralized
  • Implemented extended gtk view using webkit (gtk+)
