UPDATE 20–12–2006: As “Jimmy JTB” mentions (see trackback below) I’ve also had an occasional “feed mix-up” with the beta. In a comment on Jimmy’s post Dare says this will be improved again, hopefully completely sorted, in the next beta. A couple of other things I’ve found;
- If you loose right click menus after a feedlist download restarting RSS Bandit will restore it.
- Clearing the Cache “C:\Documents and Settings\YOURLOGON\Local Settings\Application Data\RssBandit\Cache” will un-mix feeds.
Dare has posted a beta for the next release of RSS Bandit. There are some performance fixes and nice new features. It appears the
occasional feed mix-up (posts showing in the wrong location) and scrambled graphics (when you did a large “mark as read”) are sorted.
Some of my favourite new features:
- Comment Watching (Yay!)
- Date-based grouping in the list view
- Favicons in the feedlist. Small refinement but makes it easier to pick a feed in the tree. Below the Autodesk blogs show a mix of favicons; Custom, TypePad and Wordpress included.
Remember, like any beta, this is work in progress, enter at your own risk but so far I’ve not seen any major problems
