3.07 sneak peek release


For curious minds we have made available 3.07 sneak peek release. What it comes to new functionality then it can be buggy as hell. But curious mind knows what he/she does ;). Also - this version will not make into final 3.07. We are adding more features before 3.07 is released.

Why must one download this? There are some really interesting new features in Feedreader 3.07:

*Most interesting feature is new "Enclosure browser".

We really took our podcast listening users into account and tried to get Feedreader enclosure support a little bit better.

But we have made only half a way. In this thread comments are welcome from hardcore podcast listeners and enclosure users. One thing though - at the moment we do not have plans to support full blown multimedia player in Feedreader 3.07. So all ideas are welcome but we cannot fulfill all of them.

Some information about Enclosure browser

Feedreader plays only wav and mp3 files internally. If you think that this internal playing is nonsense then talk out ;).
On left navigation tree are five icons. They mean following (in the order from top to bottom) : All enclosures, audio, video, images, all other enclosures.

But in overall I think the user interface should be quite logic to everybody...

There is only one thing that you do not see from image ;). It's quite good shell integration. For example you can drag files with right mouse button from enclosure window to whatever folder you have opened in file explorer or windows. You can COPY and MOVE files. If you select one or more files and press Control+c then files will be copied to Clipboard and you can paste them to whatever folder with Control+V. This shell integration is good if you want to copy files easily to mp3 player and so on.

Other features of this release

*Now you can change font size in Feedreader easily. There are two no buttons on statusbar of main form
*Some users have complained about the fact that Feedreader is brought into foreground if notification window is displayed. I hope we have fixed this.
*Feed subscription from Firefox. Earlier Feedreader versions were a little bit buggy then talking about this feature. Now Feedreader should subscribe to feeds nicely if autodiscovery button is pressed in Firefox.
