We after reading through the various comments I tried to consolidate the topics and to weight them for the number of mentions (listed in braces). Here are the results and some thoughts on each:
- Performance (6): Well... not actually a feature. But we are working on it!
- tt-rss Sync (6): Syncing to tt-rss or another open source Google Reader competitor
- Browser Context Menu (4): I grouped several points under this topic:
- Save Link As (2)
- Save Image As (1)
- Copy URL (1)
- Ubuntu Messaging Menu Integration (3): Actually a patch exists for this. But not a single developer runs Ubuntu, so we cannot really maintain this feature. For now we therefore have decided not to include it.
- More Google Reader Features (3): Most asked for is the folder support. Problem is that Google Reader has label-based folders, where Liferea has stricly hierarchic folders, so there is no unique mapping in all cases and we see no sane way to map non-hierarchic labels into the feed list.
- Better Tray Icon (2): Here we need artistic contributions! We are developers, not artist. Anyone? Volunteers!
- Stability (2): Not a feature, but it is important. We believe the current code is pretty stable.
- Alternative DB (2): While I understand the wish, this is a level of complexity 2-3 part-time developers cannot maintain. Sorry, but this is just unrealistic.
- Confirm "mark all read" (2): This pops up more often lately. But does your favourite email client ask for confirmation? I believe it to be an untypical behaviour. What could be a solution would be a generic Undo feature requested one time in the comments and regularily in the bug tracker.
- Small Icons Toolbar (1): We try to support all toolbar styles GTK does, which currently doesn't include the small icons mode.
- Windows Port (1): I understand the wish, but we cannot support an OS we do not use ourselves. This is something that needs a maintainer.
Note: the list above is a quick summary and might miss some topics mentioned.
What happens next?
Please do not despair if your suggestion isn't immediatly realized. We will carefully consider complexity and importance and will realize as much improvements as possible. I believe we should start with improving the context menu and implement tt-rss support.
