JabNews: “I just successfully posted a message to a Manila-based test site with my Jabber client — the Jabber Blogging Agent is slowly getting better. I'm planning to get a version into production on jabber.org by the end of next week.”
Now, let me explain what's going on there. Dave Smith, who posted that message, typed that text into a Jabber client, where it was routed to his Manila site through the Blogger API. He could just as easily have used it to post to a Blogger site. In other words, we've reached the milestone — we now have the Blogger API working for news-item-oriented Manila sites. This means that if you have a toolkit for Blogger, you should be able to use it to get, post, edit and delete items on a Manila site.
