After a long hiatus of more than 3(!) years I'd like to announce a new, completely redesigned version of Delicer - Delicer v0.9.5. Delicer is a windows client for delicious. You can download it for free here.
Well Delicer is not a very high priority project of mine and seems like delicious is not a high priority service project @ yahoo and seems like yahoo is loosing their positions globally as a service provider. Therefore we have not released any update to this tool for more than 3 years. But somehow I realized that people continue to download it every day and they send me emails. It amazes me. During these 3 years yahoo redesigned authentication scheme for all their APIs including delicious API. All yahoo APIs now use oAuth authentication scheme, which is awful in my opinion however widely adopted, lol.
In this release:
- Yahoo ID support. We no longer support delicious native authentication. You need to migrate to yahoo IDs on delicious to be able to continue and use this tool. That's very easy to do on delicious - options.
- oAuth authentication
- Major redesign.
Known issue: delicious authentication token is very limited in TTL therefore it can expire during your work. If you get "unauthorized" errors - please go to tools - options and manually reset the authentication token, then restart the tool. We will fix this issue in the future release.
