Subject: A long overdue BlogAPI update

Good evening everyone,

As you probably know, BlogAPI was successfully funded by a ChipIn in
December of 2011, in large part by Acquia (thank you Acquia and everyone
else that contributed!).

However, since then, I've had some personal issues come up that have made
it difficult to find time to work on BlogAPI. I know that 16 months is a
long wait for the module, and I do apologize for that. I won't try to make
excuses because anything that I can say will not do justice to the fact
that it has taken so long to get the module in a working state. I dropped
the ball, and I'll own that.

However, you might be happy to know that as of tonight, BlogAPI is working
with ScribeFire. In the next few days, I'll be continuing to manually test
and refine the code so that it works with other BlogAPI clients (MarsEdit
is next on the list, followed by Windows Live Writer, Ecto, and perhaps
MacJournal). There are a handful of automated tests in place currently.
I'll also be continuing to add tests for the functionality currently in the
module so that the testbot can tell me/us when I'm doing something wrong.

If you have any questions/concerns/comments/rants, feel free to reply to
this email.

Again, I'm sorry for the delay. Talk to you soon!
