Certain user defined enclosures treated as podcasts including adding to
playlists in iTunes and Windows media player
Remembering application state on restart - This will work similar to the
Session Saver extension in Firefox in that open tabs and the tree view state
will be remembered on restart
Revamping the search feature - We've moved the implementation of feed
search to Lucene.Net from our custom feed search implementation which should
make searches faster and provide richer search options. The syntax for
performing Lucene search queries is available at
Support for Atom Threading Extensions
Easily configurable keyboard shortcuts - Just right-click when hovering
over the toolbar menu and choose "Customize". This feature came as
a freebie from switching to Infragistics NetAdvantage for some of our UI
Major Bug Fixes
Feed items appear in wrong feed folders - we now apply a set of heuristics
to prevent this problem from surfacing ever again. I'm pretty sure this
problem is due to bugs in HTTP Pipelining. However it is unclear whether the
bugs are in the .NET Frameworks HTTP library, proxy servers that RSS Bandit
is passing through or the Web servers that the application is fetching feeds
Relative Links in Atom 1.0 feeds appear incorrectly - now that this is
fixed the links Tim Bray and Sam Ruby's feeds now work correctly
Atom feeds from the Blogger beta site show no posts when viewed in RSS
Bandit - this was just a dumb bug on my part.
Sites with malformed cookies cause feeds not to be fetched - Specifically,
fetching cookies from sites such as Windows Live Spaces results in the
"An error has occurred when parsing Cookie header". Now we just
ignore the error and soldier on.
RSS Bandit needs administrator privileges on first run - the fix for this
was so esoteric it boggles my mind.
RSS Bandit stops downloading feeds after a while - This was actually two
bugs. The first was that the application stopped automatically downloading
feeds if any of them timed out while being fetched. The other was that feeds
with whitespace in the URLs were not being updated.
Application doesn't work in Windows Vista - this has been tracked down to
our use of old versions of the Divelement controls. Although these issues
have been fixed in newer versions of the Divelement controls we have decided
to move to NetAdvantage for Windows Forms controls for unrelated reasons.
The new controls should work fine in Windows Vista.
Application crashes with NullReferenceException during Web browsing - this
is another issue which should be fixed with our move to the NetAdvantage for
Windows Forms controls.
