New Stable Release 1.6

Liferea has a new stable release line 1.6. Download the new version 1.6.0 from our project page!

Here is a summary of the new functionality

  • Full Google Reader synchronization
  • Reduced feed list mode (hiding all feeds without unread items)
  • Enabling of browser plugins is now configurable (disabled by default)
  • GeoRSS support (rendering maps with OpenStreetMap)
  • New search engines you can subscribe to: Twitter, Identi.ca
  • Improved RSS namespace support: Itunes, Yahoo Media, Trackback
  • Improved presentation of enclosures

If you are interested in one of the above features or have problems in stability or performance of 1.4 please upgrade to this new release! If you have problems with the new release please use the IRC channel, the mailing list or the SF tracker for support requests! Everyone who posts complaints here in the comments gets -5 points (on a random account of some type of anything...).

And finally do not forget to write a bit of occasional positive feedback on the features you like most. It's hard to tell which features or users like the most to avoid accidentily dropping them.
