Choqok is a micro-blogging client for KDE and in my opinion, one of the best at that. Recently, the Choqok team released the first beta towards Choqok 1.0. It has various improvements like:
- Actions to subscribe/unsubscribe and block a user, added to User menu.
- Support to attach a file (like image) to a dent in StatusNet/Identica(>0.9).
- Ability to select which timelines we like to have in one account.
- And 2 new timelines for Twitter and Statusnet/Identica accounts: Public timeline and Favorites
- Optional ReTweet/ReDent prefix.
- And some new plugins.
