What's New In This Version:
New:
✔ Support for custom post types. Enable them for any WordPress.org blog within the settings.
✔ Poster is now localized for English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, and Spanish
✔ Edit a post's excerpt
✔ Set posts as sticky
✔ Edits to published posts can now be saved locally before re-publishing

✔ Option to remove a post's featured image
✔ Re-order your blogs within the interface
✔ Improved URL scheme with support for a callback URL (http://tomwitkin.com/poster/developers)

Changes:
+ Typing a space in the slug field now inserts a dash rather than presenting an error, allowing for quicker entry
+ Maximum post download limit increased to 100 posts
+ Ability to edit a post's excerpt, slug, or comments is now hidden by default in the post inspector. They can be unhidden by tapping "Options" in the inspector. All fields in the inspector can now be hidden.
+ Custom fields can now be given a friendlier label that's used in the interface (ex: LinkFormatURL --> Link)
+ HTML preview and auto Markdown conversion now converts “--” and “---” to en and em dashes, respectively
+ New icon
+ Improved speed when syncing posts
+ Improved formatting when sharing a published post (unique formatting for Twitter/Facebook, email, and clipboard). Clipboard now receives only the link to a post.
+ Edits to posts are automatically saved. There's no need to manually save a post anymore.
+ Faster title entry on iPhone
+ Improved memory usage and launch times (the initial launch may take longer than normal due to a one-time data migration)

Fixes:
+ Fixed an issue where duplicate custom fields would appear on the web interface for a post each time it was edited
+ Fixed an issue where a custom field could not be removed from a post
+ Fixed an issue where selecting a file from Dropbox would not create a new post
+ Fixed an issue where the keyboard could cover text when editing a post
+ Fixed an error for blogs that have identically named categories under different parent categories

You can purchase Poster from the App Store for $2.99.
