Thanks for the feedback. A lot of these are already on The List, so it's just a matter of squeezing them in to the schedule somewhere
You could probably do this with an XSLT right now although making it as easy as entering a bunch of search terms is a Great Idea. It would also be possible to write a quick plugin that took a feed URL and a regular expression as parameters, downloaded the feed and then stripped out items if they matched the RE.

I have a running search agent looking for 'AJAX' which I would have liked to have on just a few select channels. Instead it applies it to all channels and includes almost every post on Planet Ajaxian :/
We will be allowing for this soon, letting you restrict searches (and search agents) to channels that pass a filter.
MikeW wrote:3. Search per channel.
I really would like the ability to go into one of my channels, press search and allow me to filter THIS CHANNEL ONLY.
This will come as part of the ability to restrict a search to a particular channel filter. I just open the channel and press Ctrl-F to search for text on the page
MikeW wrote:4. Better offline support.
I mentioned this elsewhere on the forum. But when I load up a feed in 'Full Content' mode thats graphics heavy, and a couple more. After I disconnect from the internet and come back to it a bit later on to view it, I find that all the images have vanished. It seems IE didn't cache them for long enough. Personally I would like it if for each item in a feed, awasu could grab the content of that item, the images, and be able to display it in offline mode.
I'm not sure how IE decides when to flush stuff out of the cache - I'll take a look. Increasing the size of the Temporary Internet Files Folder might help.
MikeW wrote:5. Ad filtering
Wow, ads in RSS feeds are getting more and more annoying. Some of them don't even seem to have the ads embedded in the feed but applied with some external combo of script and xsl or something. I havn't looked too much into it, but could some good sole create some filter that awasu could read and be applied?
