The latest release candidate of FeedDemon 1.10 is available for download. You may remember that late last year I made a list of features that I wanted FD to have, so I’m going to go through and update you on progress.
This has now been implemented,to get working since you have to modify a hidden registry entry. It’s also a little buggy when working with tabs – if you close a tab you get several error messages. But other than that it works fine.
Support for Userland’s BlogChannel RSS namespace
Not added yet. Atom supports this natively by using the
<link> element with the
rel="related" parameter, so there’s even more reason 🙂 .
Individual feed viewing options
Again, not added yet. But more and more sites I frequent provide Atom feeds with full content so this is less of an issue.
Support for the slash:comments extension
Not yet, but someone could probably add it if they modified one of the XSLT templates. I don’t really know XSLT yet though.
Better error reporting
Not here yet.
Cleanup wizard improvements
This release candidate brings a ‘combined date’ column which I requested – it displays the published date if it exists, otherwise the date that the item was received. There’s still no category column though.
Hiding author’s email address
Implemeted, and very useful it is too 😀
So we’re getting there. Still a few more features I’d like though, but on the other hand, all the more reason for there to be a FD 1.20, I suppose.
