How best to export a Journler diary?

I have used Journler since I got my Mac a year ago, and have built up a fairly large journal. I really like the program, but it seems it's been abandoned; the developer switched from donationware to paid software with the latest release, but I haven't paid for my license yet. I don't plan to purchase one if it's abandoned, what with Snow Leopard on the horizons, and a possible computer move in the next year.

So, looking forwards, what's the best way to export my Journler? My ideal solution would be using a free (preferably open source) solution that is available for Mac and Linux (been experimenting with Ubuntu lately). TiddlyWiki would be great, as it's portable. Thanks very much in advance.

It doesn't appear that the developer has abandoned development - he posted a development roadmap in June, and doesn't seem to be too far off-schedule so far. I would wait it out a bit - if 2.6 is in fact released with support for plugins as the roadmap describes, I would guess that some sort of export plugin will appear, if you still want to bail from Journler.

His forum posts earlier this year said he would not make those deadlines, and he has maintained radio silence. Please assume it is abandonware.

Ok, if it's abandonware: it looks like competitor Memoires can import from Journler, and has more robust export features. Might require buying a license of that app to make it happen, though.

As of today Journler is abandonware. I'm now looking for options other than Journler.

A newer question on Mac Journal apps, if people are looking for a replacement
