FeedDemon 2.0 is Golden!

After months of coding, debugging, refining and performance-tuning, FeedDemon 2.0 is finally done. The code has been frozen, the final install has been built, the documentation has been written, and we’re all set to go live with it. The download will be posted soon, and I’ll announce it here once it’s available.

At this point I feel like I should blog a post-mortem of the new version, but the truth is I’m too pooped to do it – all I want to do right now is shut off my brain for a while and then take a veerrrryyy long nap!

Before I do that, though, I first want to give my thanks to everyone who helped out during the beta. This has been the longest beta cycle I’ve been involved in, yet through it all we’ve received an incredible amount of feedback that has helped make FeedDemon 2.0 a far better product than it would’ve been. And I also have to thank our excellent support team for dealing with the firehose of feedback that results from an open (public) beta. I believe FeedDemon 2.0 is the best work I’ve ever done, and I know it would not have been possible had I been the only one handling support.

And now, about that nap…zzz…

  1. How about release English.fdlang2 before FD2.0 Final released? So that many other language files may released at the same time.

    Thanks again for all your hard work!

  3. Congratulations Nick :)
    Other commitments have meant I couldn’t keep up with the forum posts over the last 3-4 weeks, sorry I couldn’t help more but I’m glad I was involved in the early alpha at least.

  4. Congratulations! An I still say that FD is the best piece of software I have bought.
    Well done :)

  5. My favorite Newsreader is golden!

    Yes, Feeddemon 2.0 is officially done. You cannot download the latest version yet, but that will probably change in a few hours. Keep an eye on Nicks blog to get the latest news on that.

    Congratulations are in order to Nick Bradbury who finished FeedDemon 2.0 yesterday. This is the news aggregator that I utilize and have been using the beta’s up to this point. It will be nice to get the finished product loaded….

  8. Jedi: I’m afraid we decided to ship the initial 2.0 without localized FDLANGs, but if you create a translation just let me know and I’ll certainly link to you from here.

  9. Thanks for adding the ‘Last 24 hours’ filter alongside ‘Today’ and ‘Yesterday’. It’s really useful.

  10. Not many people can release “beta” software that has been stable and usable day-to-day since the first public release. That alone speaks volumes about Nick and his dedication to great software.
    Heck I’ve been a fan since Homesite!
