Been playing with this and I noticed one thing that annoys me. I created an account for bug tracking and it didn't go. I never received my password in e-mail. Looks pretty sweet though. I am in a conundrum between Zempt and SharpMT.. I guess future releases will determine my favorite. How bot a PocketPC port so we can have a client for our PDAs?? :)

Any idea on dates for the next releases? Especially 0.4 (Proxy Support)

The 0.3 release should be out within a week. Other than that, we don't have any set timeline. That's the curse of open-source side projects. They get done when the developers have the time. Bill Zeller now has a bunch of time on his hands, so we should have a number of releases over the next few weeks.

I'm new at blogging and still struggling to figure out some things--like, on the Zempt sign-in screen, what is the entry that asks "Enter XML-RPC Endpoint URL"? I have no idea what to put in there.

The Good: I love the ability to post the entry with the date/time stamp set to either the time you created it, the current time, or anything else you want. The Bad: PLEASE work on the editor. An add-link shortcut is a must, but what would be very nice is user defined tags with user defined shortcut keys.
