LJarchive, the 3rd party program which lets you archive your LJ on your computer, is currently not working properly.

I found two support requests about it.

LJ staff, in later comments, say that the issue has been forwarded to the developers, so maybe it'll work again one day.

In other news, LJ's Rich Text Editor continues to have problems.

Here (in Russian), the head of LJ development talks about release 83.1, which fixes some of the bugs.

I haven't been posting to LJ recently (and I don't use the RTE anyhow) but I'm amazed they put out this release without finding or addressing any of these bugs. Something has gone seriously wrong in their testing.

LJArchive is not *the* program to archive your journal on your computer, it's *a* program to do so - there are others, such as ljbackup/ljmigrate. (It's the only one with a GUI that I'm aware of, if that matters.)

The issue is also interfering with imports to Dreamwidth and Wordpress (and possibly other places that I am not aware of).

Is this something we need to report a bug about on this end?

Not as far as I am aware. I've seen support requests on DW about it, so I expect that the DW devs know that it's an issue and would be doing something about it if it were in their power to do so :)

Similarly, there have been lots of support requests on LJ about it, and it's been reported to the devs there.

And here I was being amazed that they were actually improving LiveJournal. Dang. >.>;
