ANN: FeedDemon 2.1 Beta 2a

I’m pleased to announce that FeedDemon 2.1 Beta 2a is now available.  As you can see from the release notes, there are a lot of changes in FeedDemon 2.1, including:

  • Pagination in the newspaper view.
  • Popular Topics feature which shows the most frequently linked articles across your subscriptions.
  • Redesigned subscription search
  • Keyword highlighting in watches and subscription search results.
  • Security lockdown – FeedDemon now completely disables scripting in its newspaper view, which means that even if an attacker finds a way to inject script into a feed in a way that circumvents FeedDemon’s “cleansing” of feed content, the script still won’t be able to execute.
  • Integration with Windows Live Writer.
  • YouTube Video Search added to keyword searches in subscription wizard.
  • Thumbnail images next to posts when summaries (excerpts) are displayed.

As always, please keep in mind that this is a beta version, so I don’t recommend downloading it unless you’re comfortable using unfinished software.  If you do download the beta and run into any problems with it, please let us know by posting in the FeedDemon 2.1 Beta Forum.

Note: This is a minor update from Beta 2, which was released earlier this week but never announced here.  Please see this forum post for a list of changes since Beta 2.
