Getting ready for a release, New build for a new flock exprience.

  1. New Blog editor, back in the tab so it doesn’t look like a popup
  2. new top-bar manager
  3. new photo top bardsc00099.jpg for people not getting enough sulfar in their diets.
  4. New photo-uploader to make it easier than ever before.
  5. the new map topbar to keep map notes about all the hotels I am staying in this month
  6. there are never technorati conversations about my blog, but the topbar shows interesting stuff for other urls
  7. the shelf is now a topbar, and it works pretty nicely there
  8. rss view really rocks, especially if you put a few things into a collection and sort by topic, a little bit of statistical text analysis and similiar articles are lumped together
  9. Collection based top-bars have more dragging and dropping.
  10. tag photo, blog posts

Really there are more cleanup and features than I can remember, but it is a fun new release.

technorati tags:



  1. –Can you tell us an approximate date when this new build (0.5.9) will be released?

    –Do you plan to add a speller to Flock in the future?

    Will wait in the wings for your answer.

    Thanks in advance,

    The notes are at:

    You can download the 0.5.9 build at:

    * Windows
    * Mac OS X (10.3.9 or later)
    * Linux

    You can go to “Help” -> “Check for updates” and upgrade to 0.5.10, via the patch upgrade proccess it took about 30seconds over my 56k modem to do the update.

    Yes a spell check is present in this version, but no I didn’t use it.

  3. Hi rslomkow:

    Thanks a lot for your information. I’m going to give it a try to see if I can get all the way to version 0.5.10.

    I really liked the good news tat a spell checker is present in the upgrade.
