The first beta of FeedDemon 2.6.1 was kept fairly quiet, but I’m done keeping quiet now that beta 2 is out :)
Version 2.6.1 is primarily a bugfix release, but it also contains some nice improvements:
- "Find Feeds" now enables subscribing to multiple feeds at once
- Clippings folders that have an RSS feed now have an RSS icon overlaid on them
- Lots of optimizations, especially with the embedded browser, favicons and synchronization
The biggest change in this release is that I’ve switched to SQLite for storing popular topics and feed history data. This change should have little impact on regular usage – it’s really just a first step towards moving all data (including your subscriptions) to SQLite in a future version (v3.0, most likely).
Download details and release notes can be found on the FeedDemon Beta Site. As always, simply install this pre-release directly on top of your existing version – there’s no need to uninstall first.
