The Open Source LJ client that Ginger uses fails to log in under MacOSX Lion.
Since it's Open Source, I made a quick fix. If anyone needs it, it's available. No warranty, naturally. And hopefully someone else will release an official, signed fix that can be auto-updated for the rest of the users.
Experimental XJournal for Lion (only)
Please only use this if you need it. I'm making it available for people to test. If you can't use XJournal because of the -1 problem, it's worth a shot. This version is marked 1.0.6b6a and is NOT in the svn repository.
Install by downloading the disk image, opening it, dragging the XJournal bundle to your Applications Folder, and launching it.
1: I can't sign it, so it's not updatable via Sparkle.
2: I can't tell if it's slower because I'm using a slower method or it's just LJ flakiness. Login in particular seems to be slow.
3: We've tested most functions on two Lion MBPs. There could be surprises or things that don't work that I may not be able to easily diagnose.
That being said, this version...
1: runs on Lion on my MBP and my wife's MBP.
2: logs in, gets user pics and tags, allows you to post, checks friends lists, shows history, and does everything else we tried. We don't know if it does things we didn't try.
Comment here if you notice anything, or if the devs want my changes.
