Bilbo is moving into KDE project, with a new name!

Saturday, September 19th, 2009

For a long time, We (The Bilbo team) and KBlogger developers were in touch to replace KBlogger with Bilbo and put it into KDE PIM as its primary Blogging client.

And after last release (a.k.a Bilbo 1.0), We have decided to do the job, So we moved the source code to KDE svn repository.

And recently one member of Tolkien Enterprise contacted us to rename Bilbo Blogger, because it’s trademarked by that organization. So we selected the name Blogilo for it. And from now, We will refer it as Blogilo, And it will be released as a part of KDE project.

    Congratulations!
    Blogilo really deserves to be included in KDEPIM! It’s an excellent piece of software. Keep up the good job!

    Congratulations – it’s a great tool and deserving of joining the KDE family. Has it moved to kde svn yet – I haven’t been able to locate it there.

    Esperanto name, isn’t it? If you need help for translation into Esperanto, same people in our movement would easily help.

    When will Blogilo be available in KDE?

  6. #6 by mehrdad - October 23rd, 2009 at 08:40

    With next KDE releases, i.e. KDE 4.4

    I use Bilbo (a release before the rename) and it doesn’t support image uploading for BlogSpot accounts. Does the newest release have this functionality? Or, is it expected to have this by the KDE SC 4.4 release?

    Thanks for the great application!

    No, Uploading media to blogspot is not supported yet, Because the
    underlying APIs (Blogger1 and GData) don’t support this.

    @golnaz why not use the Blogger 2.0 API, does BlogSpot not have that?

  10. #10 by golnaz - December 11th, 2009 at 18:38

    I searched a bit , And doubt that Blogger 2.0 can support remote media uploading.

    @golnaz i think you will have to wait

    Is Blogilo 1.0.1 the latest version? I’m planning to give it a try by next week.

  14. #14 by mehrdad - May 11th, 2011 at 14:34

    It’s latest official release,
    You can try it from git too

    Thanks for the updated info above! I had the same question… and there it is! :)

    I think Blogilo is a better name than Bilbo. Everytime I hear Bilbo, I think of the Lord Of The Rings character.

    Great job. Super pumped to use it!!
    @mike – too funny I thought of Bilbo from LOTF too. :)
