ANN: FeedDemon 2.6 RC2a Pre-Release

The second release candidate of FeedDemon 2.6 is now available.   Changes since RC1 include:

  • New Panic Button optionally warns when you have a ton of unread items and offers to mark them (or a subset of them) as read
  • "Export Subscriptions" now enables exporting as APML (experimental)
  • Faster updating of feeds (much faster, in some cases)
  • Feed reports (Attention report, Dinosaurs report, etc.) can now be grouped by folder

…and the usual embarrassing assortment of bug fixes.

For download details and complete change notes, please see the FeedDemon Beta Site.

  1. I really don’t want to register to submit a feature request, so I’ll post my little usability niggle here…
    When you have multiple pages, your next page pagination control shifts when you move to to the second page as it adds the previous page button… If you could display the previous page button disabled for the first page, that would really assist me in my laziness as I wouldn’t have to move my mouse to quickly hit next page repeatedly.

  2. Nick-
    Thanks for keeping with the inovations in FeedDemon… but what I don’t understand is why we ~STILL~ don’t have any comment reading support in FeedDemon, much less any mention of it on feature requests.

  3. Nick,
    Is there a command line switch I can use so it does not install FeedStation? I never use FS and so always have to manually uninstall it, not a big issue I know but would be nice if there was a /nofs option on the installer ;)

  4. @Morgan: believe it or not, /nofs is already supported :) Just add it to the command-line of the FeedDemon installer, and it will skip installing FeedStation.

  5. @bobo: which build are you seeing this problem with? There was a problem with the page controls in an earlier v2.6 pre-release, but it *should* be resolved in RC2a.
