IMPORTANT: This is an alpha release (what's this?).
Some features may not be complete and there will probably be bugs!
You must be already running 3.0.3.
- Read the release notes below first!
- Backup your Awasu installation directory and keep it, even if the alpha appears to work correctly.
- Unpack one (!) of the following zips on top of your existing installation:
- Run admin.exe to upgrade your database.
This may take a short time to run.
- Added support for additional image types e.g. PNG.
- Added support for MP3 sounds.
- Web-bugs are no longer downloaded for offline reading.
- Web-bugs are now removed from the channel summary pages.
- Ctrl-Back and Ctrl-Delete now work in edit boxes.
Minor changes and bug fixes
- Fixed a problem that was often stopping the Channel Wizard from successfully auto-discovering feeds.
- Fixed a problem with auto-discovery that was stopping relative URL's from being handled properly.
- Python now only looks in the Awasu installation directory when loading external modules.
- Limited the size of attachments that can be emailed.
- Fixed a problem that was storing redundant feed items in the archive database.
- Fixed a problem that was stopping Awasu from receiving API requests correctly if another copy of Awasu was already running in another session.
- Channel images are now clickable in the channel summary pages.
- The Tasks Pane is now updated after a channel is deleted.
- Plain-text item titles are no longer HTML-stripped in the channel item pane.
- The Program Options dialog now shows the number of files queued for download.
- The Downloaded Files window now offers a "Open file location" menu item.
- Fixed a problem with processing metadata modules for feeds that have a BOM.
- Metadata module processing no longer logs an error for malformed feeds.
- Awasu tries to handle malformed UTF8 better when replacing SGML entities.
- API requests can no longer save the result in a file.
- Removed Mozilla as an option for the embedded browser.
I know some of you are using this, but it uses a third-party control that hasn't been updated for years, and can no longer be considered secure. If you really, really, really want to use it, shoot me an email and I'll tell you how to turn it back on.
- Tried to minimize the effect of a problem in reading the output generated by an external process (this typically manifested as a "the channel produced no output" error).
- Fixed a crash when clicking on an item in the sidebar.
- Fixed a crash if too many channels are imported into the Personal Ediiton.
- Fixed a crash when handling authenticated feeds.
- Miscellaneous UI changes.
