MarsEdit 3.5.7: WordPress Post Statuses

November 9th, 2012

Update: Unfortunately a major crashing bug required an urgent fix and release of MarsEdit 3.5.8.

MarsEdit 3.5.7 is now available on the Mac App Store and directly from the Red Sweater Store. This is a free update for licensed MarsEdit customers.

This update includes long-awaited support for recognizing and setting the post statues “Private” and “Pending” on a WordPress blog. This is especially important because previous to 3.5.7, edits by MarsEdit to a private or pending post would cause WordPress to assume that the post should be changed to “Published” status, potentially revealing private information.

Apart from that there are a number of minor improvements and bug fixes including performance fixes for WordPress that should cause publishing and refreshing to be somewhat faster. Folks who use keyboard layouts with non-Roman characters will appreciate a fix to a bug that caused keyboard shortcuts to stop working when switched to e.g. a Thai or Greek layout.

Complete change list below:

MarsEdit 3.5.7

  • Improve performance when publishing to WordPress
  • Support for WordPress Private and Pending post statuses
  • Use Mac localized sorting for better organizing in posts lists
  • Fix behavior of formatting keyboard shortcuts in non-Roman keyboards
  • Fix a bug that caused dates to incorrectly display as e.g. “Tomorrow” when they should be “Today”
  • Fix handling of bookmarklet requests when the app is not yet launched
  • Fix a graphical glitch in the Media Browser introduced in 3.5.6
  • Avoid a crash with Tumblr when exceeding their daily photo posting limit
