FeedingIt 0.6.2 promoted to Extras-Testing

That’s right, the new version of FeedingIt, 0.6.2, is ready for testing. It has been in the Extras-Devel repository for a while. The main change in this version is the addition of a home-screen widget. This widget displays the number of unread messages for the top 8 feeds, even when the main application is not running. It also integrates a scheduler to enable regular automatic updates that will be running in the background (no need to leave the application running to get the updates). Double-clicking one of the feed titles will open the main application to display this feed.

The main application also received some updates, most notable for speed and memory management. Visually, the main difference is the addition of the icons in the feed listing.

So, if you have a chance to test this version, and if you think it is ready to be promoted to Extras, you can vote for it here:

Also of note, 2 people have shown interest in helping out with the development of FeedingIt. A first patch was submitted by Nelson a couple of days ago to add a setting to hide feeds and articles that are already read. It’s quite exciting to see new contributions like this, and let’s see how this project evolves with a more diversified input.
