Speed Improvement, UI Enhancements, and Video Library Support

We are inching ever so close to the 1.0 release, with today’s beta version update available at http://blackberry.wordpress.org/install

Here is what’s new:

  • Based on all the great feedback, we reworked much of the UI layout for the main view, blog view, and media view
  • Ability to upload videos from your media library
  • New option to set media file properties (filename, caption, title, and position)
  • Created a new file browser that resembles the native BlackBerry file browser
  • Big improvements in the speed at which you can view and manage comments
  • Lots of optimizations for uploading photos and videos using base64 encoding
  • Indonesian language support updated thanks to Kate of Pixel Insert
  • Improved French language support thanks to Yann Nave of blog.onbebop.net

Here are a few screenshots of the new beta:
