We’re nearly there! The new release is now available to download. This is the last planned beta release before we make it to the 1.0.
We didn’t add many new features this time around, but we do have an About box. Not the most attractive ever, but at least you now know what version you’re trying out (thanks to Tore for pointing that out!).
Probably more significantly we’ve added a new Preferences dialog, with options to enter your web proxy settings (for those poor souls at Strathclyde Uni and elsewhere that need them – thanks John!) You can also tune how quickly FeedForward scans your feeds:
(Note that as we use a feedcache it won’t actually impact the sites too much if you crank it up.)
Hopefully if there are no new bugs, we can have the 1.0 launch in the next couple of months.
