Release Notes

New features since release 1.1:

  • Greatly improved user interface
  • Many new options in the now separate preferences dialog
  • New notification class showing the number of new items
  • If a news item has an image as enclosure this is used in the notification instead of the generic RSS icon
  • (Experimental) integration of the Chromium web rendering engine (which is used by Google Chrome) which is much faster and better than the included with Windows
    • Activate it within the preferences
    • it's marked as experimental with some reasons - so did I see some crashes on certain web pages and don't double click within the preview...
    • if Chromium is used the temporary saving of summaries to a file is omitted
  • Automated update notification if newer version of Desktop Google Reader is released
  • (Optional) minimize to tray
  • Option to directly show the full web page of the item instead of summary in the news feed if
    • .... this is activated within the preferences in general,
    • .... this is activated within the preferences for empty summeraries and/or,
    • .... the summary is simply just the same as the title
  • Custom proxy settings
    • in fact this is the main reason why it is called a beta - these settings do not work every time until now :(
  • Password is now saved encrypted
  • Date and time of news item now displayed next to the title
