I have just updated Semagic. It contains some minor changes and, in particular, fixed cookie for download of comments (thanks to user Michael Dannov) so you do not have to always login in the Web tab to download comments. Now you can disable usage of IE cookie in the Options in the Synchronization window (Synchronization is available in the Links menu).
For Windows XP users: there is a way to enable TLS 1.2 on windows XP so Semagic will show userpic and connect to dreamwidth: see for example here: https://www.smartftp.com/ru-ru/support/kb/2754
For me, it solved the problem only partially, but for other people even Skype started to work ( http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:q_YSdXS9MfYJ:https://msfn.org/board/topic/178092-enable-tls-11-and-12-in-windows-xp-correctly/&hl=ru&gl=ru&strip=1&vwsrc=0 )
A note to Dreamwidth users: now you get "Invalid password" error. You have to generate API key in the DW settings (mobile/advanced setup options page) and use it as password in Semagic.
Also, at Dreamwidth, if you have enabled auto crossposting to LJ, those crossposted entries (due to not yet fixed DW error) cannot be edited via Semagic or other client. So it is better to crosspost via Semagic.
Also, most of image upload providers no longer work. Flickr changed authorization so it works only for those who authorized their Semagic long time ago.
So image providers that work:
- LJ Scrapbook
- Flickr for old users, i.e. with saved authorization tokens
- Metaweblog API upload
