FeedDemon 2.1 released

After some months of beta testing, a new version of the FeedDemon RSS aggregator for Windows has been released.

Plenty to like about this new version 2.1:

  • Pagination: FeedDemon’s newspapers can now span multiple pages, which provides a significant performance boost when viewing a large number of items. Note that the number of articles per page can be customized on the Reading tab in FeedDemon’s options.
  • Popular Topics: Select “Popular Topics” from the Browse menu or click the “Popular Topics” toolbutton on the toolbar above FeedDemon’s browser to see which are the most frequently linked articles across your subscriptions.
  • Redesigned subscription search: Hit F3 to search your subscriptions, and limit your search to any feed or folder.
  • Security lockdown: FeedDemon now completely disables scripting in its newspaper view, so even if malicious script finds its way into someone’s feed, FeedDemon won’t execute it.
  • Keyword highlighting in watches and subscription search results.
  • Keyboard navigation of news items and single-key shortcuts when the newspaper has the focus.
  • Integration with Windows Live Writer. If you don’t already have a blog publishing tool configured in FeedDemon, FeedDemon will automatically detect Live Writer. Otherwise, click the “Auto-detect” button on the “Configure Blog Publishing Tools” dialog to add Live Writer.
  • YouTube Video Search
  • Send any article to Digg
  • …and the usual assortment of performance improvements and bug fixes!
