FeedDemon 1.6: Other new stuff

Over the last few posts I’ve highlighted some of the new features in FeedDemon 1.6 RC1, but in addition to these obvious features are a number of smaller ones which are equally useful. In no particular order, here are a smattering of them:

  • “Remember tabs between sessions” (Options|Options|Browsing) which tells FeedDemon to remember which URLs are open in the tabbed browser and re-open them the next time FeedDemon is started (I should’ve added this a long time ago!)
  • Quick toolbar customization – click the arrow at the far right of each toolbar to add or remove toolbuttons
  • “Photo Strip” newspaper style (described here)
  • FeedDemon watches now support negative keywords, which enables excluding items that contain a specific word
  • “Don’t export secure feeds” option added to OPML export
  • The “Statistics” page in the feed properties dialog now enables showing FeedBurner statistics for FeedBurner feeds
  • The feed properties dialog now includes the option to exclude the feed from all watches

Oh, and there’s also a new Easter Egg, which I like even more than the ones I created for HomeSite many years ago :)

  1. As a Top Style user I am harboring a growing sense of resentment and dislike for FeedDemon.

  3. The tray icon is STILL broken.
    I’ve set the option to only update the current folder. I can mark all as read and minimize the app, and invariably the tray icon will start to show that there are new posts (after a while, doesn’t happen immediately). When I bring up the full UI, I can see that there are actually NO new posts.
    Please, please, PLEASE fix this for the next beta, as the tray icon is essentially useless right now.
