Shiori’s Dairy now uses Droid Sans. You can only see this font if you use Mozilla Firefox 3.5+, Safari 3.0+, Chrome or Opera 10.5+. Internet Explorer will not show the font since it does not support the @font-face embedding. In addition, web-fonts do not work on mobile devices (such as the iPhone),, so Helvetica Neue will be used instead.
Integrated P2 functions into Mandigo. Its still needs more work since new replies and posts don’t show automatically. Also, some CSS glitches with P2 that also needs to be fixed…
I plan on having the modified files on Github once the integration is done so other people can do the same on their blogs.
Update: New posts and comments should load properly.

Blog is now running WordPress 3.0 Beta 2, which has a lot of new features in the backend. However, some things may break, so report them here…
This release is a bugfix release. This fixes some minor bugs including MAL Manga List importing. Manga List should import as it supposed to
Starting with 0.9.8 Windows Version, MelScrobble will be included with the package.

Twitter Connect has been added. Now you can use your Twitter identity to comment with the P2 Theme on this blog… although I loath twitter alot…
Okay, decided to get rid of categories as it can be a potential problem for people to comment. Old categories are shoved to tags now.
Commenting should work again. Something went terribly wrong when I added categories to the p2 frontend, preventing users who are not logged in to comment. Now it should be fixed and you may start commenting again.
Like with my main blog, Chikorita157’s Anime Blog, I said sayanora to Wicketpixie and hello my custom made theme that I worked on for hours. The difference is the color scheme, but nothing else is different besides that. Tell me what you think about it, okay?
Nah… We are using P2 now…
Melative Library is close to being feature complete and a Release Candidate build should be out, depending on if there is going to be any more API changes (not likely). In the next versions of Melative Library for Windows and Mac OS X, they will include native scrobblers which I have been working on a while and will be included in the Disk Image/Installer by default. All you need to do is enter your login information and start using them. Also, with Ryan returning in April 21, Melative development should accelerate…
Now MAL Client OS X. Just a few days ago, Manga support have been added to the Unofficial MAL API as listed below:
13 April 2010
* Added the following manga API methods – thanks to Guillaume Cassonnet (gcassonnet):
* /mangalist – Read a manga list.
* /mangalist/manga/manga_id – Add, update or delete a manga in a user’s manga list.
* /manga/search – Search for manga.
Since MAL Client OS X doesn’t have Manga support built in yet since this change was committed yesterday, I will have to spend some time adding that support, but it shouldn’t be hard. I have to figure out how to do a switch between Anime/Manga and how to use the existing windows to achieve this. This may take two weeks to implement, but once it is added, a beta release will be released. To upgrade to this beta release once it is release, check the “Check for Prerelease Builds” in Misc under Preferences. This will make Sparkle Updater use the experimental Appcast instead of the stable branch. Once everything is stable, I will release it as a final build. The build that have Manga support will be marked version 1.5.
However, this won’t impact the Cocoa rewrite of MAL Client OS X since I haven’t done much work on it since I still need to learn Objective C and Cocoa.
