Choqok, the Twitter and client for Linux, adds loads of new features in v1.0

Choqok -- a fantastic, full-featured Twitter and StatusNet client for Linux -- has finally reached version 1.0. The new release adds support for a number of new sharing services, including Flickr, Posterous, YFrog, and Twitpic as well as a number of new URL shortening services. Choqok 1.0 also shows inline thumbnail previews of images and videos.

Want more? Choqok is also fully extensible thanks to its plug-in system, and a handful of very useful ones are included from the get-go. Tops among them: update filtering. So long, check-ins, now playings, and annoying prepubescent male vocalists! While we're on the subject, Choqok itself can tap into several Linux music players in case you want to share your tunes with the world. It'll also push your updates to supported IM clients as well, for automated status changes.
