You currently cannot search on specific metadata, although we will be adding this feature shortly (together with the ability to filter items out by user-defined criteria).
However, in 2.2.3
we added the ability to show feed metadata (including item authors) in the item pane. If you add a column to show the author of each item and then click on the column header to sort, all the items will be grouped together by author and it will be easy to find the ones you want.
BTW, Awasu <u>does</u> show item authors in the channel summary pages (if this information is provided by the feed publisher, of course), so if you're not seeing it, it's probably been disabled. Open the Program Options dialog, go to the Display tab, click on Channel Windows and make sure <i>Brief feed items</i> is not ticked.
