Re: Notiification balloons refuse to go away

I suspect that I speak for many users when I say that I really don't want to be interrupted by Awasu to hear that it can't access a feed. Yep. Somebody else has already said the same thing and I have already put something in place. Notification balloons can now be in one of three states: enabled, e...

Re: deleting feeds

I feel stupid, but how do you delete the feeds that you don't want or that you have already read. Right-click on the channel in the My Channels window and choose "Delete channel" or use the File menu. I have several channels and I can see how it will feel up fast. Believe me, it will! I have about ...

RSS feeds are retrieved via HTTP over port 80.

Awasu will use Internet Explorer's proxy settings. Can you get the feeds from IE?

Re: Bug when feed title contains html tags

This is an error in the feed.

RSS is XML not HTML and so markup in the title is invalid. Data like this should be wrapped in a CDATA section.

It would be nice to work around this and be more lenient when parsing feeds but doing this will unfortunately cause problems further down the track.

This sounds like 1.0.1 has been installed without installing 1.0 first. Can I ask where you downloaded Awasu from? There is a problem with the listing at BetaNews where this information is not given. Unfortunately, they make it a bit hard to change a listing once you've submitted it. The solution is...

Re: Still doesn't work

Our Tomcat guru will be in touch with you shortly. In the meantime, could you send through a copy of the RSS feed you are trying to retrieve and the exact URL you are giving the Channel Wizard.

Thanks.

Re: Python

How about bundling Python with the reader as some programmes do with Java, the simpler it is for us bunnies to install, the better the uptake will be. Python is quite unfortunately a bit large and the Awasu download is already bigger than I would like it to be. It is possible to compile Python scri...

This is a problem with the GUI toolkit I'm using (BCGSoft's - very good!).

You can define your own keyboard accelerators from the Tools, Customize dialog. Open it up, go to the Keyboard tab and press the "Reset All" button. The new WorkPad accelerators should work now.

Re: Turning off feed error notification balloons

I know that they will eventually come back online, but in the meantime, everytime Awasu checks the feeds (every hour!) I get error notification balloons telling me that there was a problem. Once an hour is not so bad, is it? I have turned off the Notification Balloons in the Options tab but these e...

Could you please send through the following:

1) A screenshot of the website as you are seeing it.
2) Details of which filtering proxy you are using and what options you have set.

And we'll take a look at it.

Thanks.

Some feeds specify the date and time that each item was added/changed but yes, it would be a good idea if Awasu indicated when each item was *received*.

I'll add it to my ever-expanding to-do list :-)

The thing is that I don't think that our different styles of using Awasu have to be mutually exclusive. All that I need is an option to show something on the channel list that lets me know that there are unread items. I don't think that would have any sort of negative impact on your ability to use ...

A lot of newsreaders work like this but I don't like it. One of the perks of writing a newsreader is that you get to do things your way The reason is that you rarely want to read *every* item in a feed. Awasu has always emphasized quality over quantity i.e. making it easy to read the items that you ...

The ability to export your subscriptions will be coming soon. A variety of formats will be supported e.g. OPML, plain-text, blogroll, etc.

The ability to sync Awasu running on different machines is also on the to-do list.

Re: Keyboard Shortcut for "Mark All As Read"?

Is there a keyboard shortcut for "Mark all as read"? I looked around and could not find it - right now I think the only way to do it is from a right-click shortcut in the item pane. It is possible to create your own keyboard shortcuts from the Tools, Customize dialog but unfortunately it only works...
