Another version has finally dropped and this one makes the program so much faster it's almost worth updating just for that alone!
Luna RSS is an accessible rss feed reader, podcatcher and RSS feed creator developed by yours truly which I've been running for a little while now.
Version 3.6 sees some major bug fixes including some fixes to the way the program actually manages and saves your feeds.
Before you update, I recommend you back up your feeds, not because I suspect there will be errors, but simply to be safe.
I've tested the feed conversion vigorously and am very happy that it's not going to leave you stranded, but better safe than sorry, right?
The full changelog is posted at the end of this post for those who care about such things, but a few highlights include:
*assign custom names to your feeds
*much, much faster start times
*cleaner html management in lists
*escape exiting many screens
I did my best to cover many of the bug reports people put in to me as well as those I discovered myself, but I apologise in advance if I missed one you put in the 3.5 thread as I couldn't find it!
That being said 3.6 includes the new logger found in Calliope, so if you get start up errors Luna will now ask if you want to send me an email about it. Much cleaner than the way it logged errors before!
