This release contains a lot of new features in several different areas, most of them in response to what people have been asking for. You spoke and we listened
The biggest area of improvement is with user tools. Amongst other things, they can now send HTTP POST requests, support HTTP authentication, can be programmed to check the response and tell the user what happened. In plain English, you can do a whole lot more with them, in particular, post to Twitter. So, if you use Twitter at all, download the new user tool and give it a whirl.
Other new features include:
- Reports can now be run at specific times of the day, week or month.
- New feed items can now be added to workpads as they arrive.
- Awasu now automatically sends through authentication details when you try to access content from password-protected feeds.
And, of course, the usual slew of minor improvements and bug fixes.
As a preview of what's coming up in the next release, I'll be working closely with the Awasu Monster to embiggen Awasu's (already broad) extensibility framework (you should see his list of feature requests ) and there'll be an announcement soon about another interesting development in the Wonderful World Of Awasu
