Now you can use 3 types of authentication: standard, challenge/ response or using cookies from IE.
For other sites based on LiveJournal code new login options might not work (until they update their code) returning "Invalid password" or "No username sent" errors (and keep in mind that challenge/response auth via web and via client are different i.e. if your site supports it via web that does not mean the client will start to work with it).
Read more in context help for login window (press F1).

If you are a new user it may be useful for you to open Options to see what is available there because some options are initially disabled (for example, loading/saving drafts etc.)

Reminder about setting displayed font: if you go to View/Set font when some text is selected the font settings (name and color) will appear in your journal. If you did not select anything it will be applied to display font (size, weight, underline, color) and will not appear in your journal entry.

Mood list and tab order are now loaded from .ini files so you can manually alter them (activation of new mood list does not delete standard one which is loaded during login so when you turn off custom moods the previous list is restored). For now only Russian mood list is supplied (it's not an exact translation of English one, actually not a translation at all, it was taken from ru_slang community). If you create a mood list for your own language you can send it to me to make it available for other users.

General reminder (rather offtopic but many of you do not know it and blame on Semagic):
when installing Windows (even latest XP), make sure you also installed drivers for your chipset, videocard and directX (all such drivers are usually shipped on a CD with computer, not through windows update). If in Control panel/ System/Device manager you see a lot of yellow question marks (or, for example, your disk is detected as Generic drive type 47) that means that those devices are not detected because your OS does not support it or its advanced functions (like ATA controllers etc.) This significantly affects overall performance of the system and may also cause Semagic to crash or work very slowly.
Of course, all these upgrades are not required, but some of you have been reporting that Semagic crashes frequently and it turned out that in fact it is due to videocard drivers not installed etc.

if you can post certain text with 9x version (on japanese windows) but cannot with 2k, take that text (better copy/paste from the posted entry at web page), copy to 9x version, activate in Options/General Debug option and post. It will save mode_postevent.txt file into Semagic folder. take that file and send to me quirrc @ livejournal.com. also do the same with 2k version and send that file too (better rename them like to post_event9x, post_event2k, and don't forget that if 2 versions are in the same folder you have to rename the file before second try because it will be overwritten). Send those .txt files zipped, not in plain text because mail program can gamage it. Also save that file for 2k version of English windows (most likely you'll be unable to do it with 9x version which posts only in default language) andsend it too. I need at least 2 files: from 2k and 9x version to compare. and provide a link to entry that you pasted.

I'm sorry, I tried posting with the debug option on, but neither version created that file, and I searched everywhere for it. The Japanese does work just fine though in the 9x version...not sure why...

it's created with version and placed into semagic folder.

I downloaded the 9x version and it's not working for me; I'm running Windows XP in Japanese, though.

9x gives the same Invalid UTF stream error?
could you send me those files (after enabling Debug) from 2k and 9x verisons, also copy/paste text that you tried to post to notepad and save it too, and a link to a posted entry via web.

I can't even login to Semagic. Do you want the error file?

to make it clear: here we dicuss only "Invalid UTF stream" error when posting entries. if you cant login getting "Decoding error" that's a sepsrate problem. If you have the first error and want to help me to solve it (because i never had seen it myself) you can activate Debug option and send me those request files exactly as i described earlier.

How do I activate the debug option?
