01:09 pm - A build to workaround the OSX Lion -1 problem
I posted this as a comment to conjurdude's Lion upgrade Woes post, but not everyone is going to see it there, so I'm reposting here…

I've built a version of XJournal that can log in on Lion. If anyone needs it, it's available at the link below. No warranty, but feel free to take it and use it.

Experimental XJournal for Lion (only)

If you can't use XJournal because of the -1 problem, it's worth a shot. This version is marked 1.0.6b6a and is NOT in the svn repository.

Install by downloading the disk image, opening it, dragging the XJournal application bundle to your Applications Folder (or wherever), and launching it.

Notes:
1: I can't sign it, so it's not updatable via Sparkle.
2: I can't tell if it's slower because I'm using a slower method or it's just LJ flakiness. Login in particular seems to be slow.
3: We've tested most functions on two Lion MBPs. There could be surprises or things that don't work that I may not be able to easily diagnose.

That being said, this version...
1: runs on Lion on my MBP and my wife's MBP.
2: logs in, gets user pics and tags, allows you to post, checks friends lists, shows history, and does everything else we tried. We don't know if it does things we didn't try.

Comment here if you notice anything, or if the devs want my changes.

Thank you for sharing this fix! I will agree it does seem slower to log in, which isn't a big deal. I have noticed that the text boxes don't highlight when you select them, which makes editing difficult. Anyone else notice this?

I don't have this problem, but I'm the spouse who beta-tested.

I see some text boxes highlight.

Subject is not highlighted on launch, but it is if I actually select it.

The body field doesn't highlight, but tags, mood, and mood text do. I assume this is new behavior?

I don't have the behavior anymore, at least on my '06 MBP. Everything is working perfectly. I think a restart was all I needed. Will test it on my early '09 Mini and see if it gives the same result.

The Lion version works perfectly for me and log in speed was normal after the second boot. I'm very pleased. Thanks very much. Paul.

I think the slowness in starting up the program is the craziness that LJ has been having.

This works for me on my MacBook Air which came with OS X Lion already on it.

The original version works on my iMac which has OS X Lion as an upgrade from Snow Leopard.

Thank you for working so hard on this. We salute you, sir!

I have, however, been noticing that the History window's search no longer works. o.O;

I just put my head in the mouth of the lion and bought my first server. I hope your code works; I'm anxious to try it.
