0.3: First beta released

I've just got out the first beta of QTM 0.3. Given that there's just me developing it and I've not had much feedback, the final 0.3 release is probably not that far away. What's changed since the last version is the addition of save and load, which is what separated the 28th Jan snapshot from the old 0.2.x releases that came out in 2004.

Downloads can be found at Sourceforge here. Any bugs can be reported at Sourceforge here.

Update 23rd Feb: Two bugs have come to light. One of those is that ampersands are not encoded in the submissions, as they should be, resulting in invalid submission faults in posts containing ampersands. This should be corrected, I hope, in the second beta. One person has also reported that his use of the program results in segmentation faults. I'm not sure what is causing this as it does not do this to me (I use Qt/Mac 4.1.0). There is also the issue of the slow Qt text-editing widget used for composing entries; I'm not sure what can be done about this, although the Qt 4.1.1 changelog lists "significantly improved performance when appending and editing text" among the changes.
