RSS Bandit (codename: Collossus) will bring stability, bug fixes and Facebook integration
Monday, May 04 2009; by dareo - Project Status
I’d like to apologize about the lack of updates on this site in recent months. Both Torsten and I have had the combination of work and new additions to the family at home take up a lot of our free time. I’m slowly beginning to get some time back as my son has started growing and things get less hectic at work. This weekend I started hacking RSS Bandit code again and feel it’s a good time to open up communication channels about a codename for the next release Collossus and the planned features.
Right now, I’m working on integrating support for reading your news feed from Facebook using their recently announced Open Stream API. You will be to select Facebook as a choice from the “Synchronize Feeds” menu
once that choice is made, you have to login to Facebook.
For the best experience, you should check to option to stay logged in to RSS Bandit so that we don’t have to prompt you for your Facebook username each time you run the application.
In addition, we will also be looking at bug fixes for a number of the crashing bugs that have been reported which have affected the stability of the application. We know there is at least one problem caused by the inability to render favicons in the tree view correctly which causes the application to crash. If you suspect you are hitting that problem, a temporary workaround is to disable favicons in the tree view by going to the Tools->Options menu and unchecking the option to use favicons as feed icons from the Display tab.
If you have any issues, thoughts or requests related to future versions of RSS Bandit please leave a comment in response to this post.
