There are two new features coming up in BottomFeeder:
- Newspaper View - This is already in the dev stream. You can set this view globally or on a feed specific basis. If it's set globally, then you'll see all new (or all today's) items summarized into a single HTML view. If you select a folder, you'll get the same behavior for all child feeds in the folder. If there are too many items to summarize, the html view can be paged. If it's set on a feed level, you get this only for specific feeds with that property set
- Synchronization between running instances of Bf. I don't have this working yet, but I've got the basics of it written. I'll be testing it out when I get back to my office and have a second machine to test with.
There will also be a number of small enhancements here and there, including a much better algorithm for comparing inbound feed items with ones you already have - and this should finally be decoupled from the size of your saved items cache. Once I get the synchronization code working (and once Rich gets the doc up to date), the next release will be ready to go. With Newspaper view and syncromization, Bf will support pretty much the same feature set as the commercial aggregator choices - all while being cross platform and completely immune to any browser based attacks.
