Feed Demon 3.0.0.10 Beta  Change Log

Changes in FeedDemon 3.0

* Added: Redesigned "Subscriptions Home" page with popular videos and articles extracted from your feeds
* Added: Items can now be tagged
o Tags are synchronized with NewsGator
o "Subscriptions Home" includes a tag cloud
o Tags can be dragged from the tree and dropped onto a post in a FeedDemon newspaper
o Tagged items can be excluded by the Cleanup Wizard
o Tagging is now included in the attention algorithm
o "G" single-key newspaper shortcut displays tag editor for current item
* Added: "Share" icon added to newspaper which adds the item to your shared clippings. Note: If you have multiple shared clippings folders, you can change which one this feature uses by right-clicking on "Clippings" and selecting "Choose default clippings folder."
* Added: Ability to view all unread or flagged items at once
* Added: Hovering over a short URL (TinyURL.com, etc.) now shows the full URL in a balloon tip so you know where the URL redirects (great when browsing Twitter). For a list of supported URL shortening services, see the file ShortUrl.xml in FeedDemon's \Data subfolder.
* Added: Automatic hyperlinking of URLs, @replies, #hashtags and author names in Twitter feeds. Profile pictures will also be displayed when subscribing to the Atom version of a Twitter feed if the feed is in a folder that isn't synchronized.
* Added: "Reply" link in newspaper when viewing a post from a Twitter feed
* Added: Redesigned toolbutton icons
* Added: "Icons" button added to Options|Reading which enables choosing which icons should appear beneath each item in the newspaper (due to this addition, several of the default icons from previous versions are now hidden by default)
* Added: Startup and Import wizards now enable importing your Google Reader subscriptions
* Added: Close button added to individual browser tabs
* Added: Significant performance improvements in "Popular Topics," "Search Subscriptions," newspaper display and many other areas
* Added: Significantly reduced memory consumption
* Added: "Export Newspaper" added to File menu - exports all posts from all pages in the active newspaper to an external HTML document
* Added: "Surfer" newspaper style now remembers whether thumbnails have been collapsed
* Added: "Enable page transitions" has been added to Options|Appearance, which defaults to being enabled unless IE8 is installed (a bug in IE8 Beta 2 causes the transitions to fail)
* Added: FeedDemon attempts to detect when script debugging is enabled in Internet Explorer and asks whether to turn it off (script debugging causes error dialogs to popup while browsing inside any application that embeds IE)
* Added: Fixed header in reports/newspapers (requires IE7 or later)
* Added: "Browser Home" added to tabbed browser context menu
* Added: Hourglass icon now appears on browser tabs that are still loading
* Added: Main menu can be toggled by right-clicking any toolbar and selecting "Show main menu"

* Added: Cleanup Wizard and Panic Button can now be limited to specific folders
* Added: Feed and folder properties now enable specifying how many days to keep items
* Added: When you switch to a language file other than the default, FeedDemon validates it to make sure it doesn't have any missing entries or arguments. If any problems are found, a dialog will alert that the language file contains errors and recommend that it not be used. Details on the errors are also shown in this dialog, which should help translators debug their work.
* Added: Support for GIF, PNG, JPEG, BMP and truecolor ICO favicons (149843)
