1.0 Build 359

Postby Jack » Tue Jan 24, 2006 9:03 pm

+Added: GreatNews now updates local copy of articles if they were changed. (Thanks Alex)
If article timestamp or title was changed, GreatNews will also set it to unread.
+Added: Article now can be configed to open in current tab, external browser, or new tab.
(Tools->Options->Usability)
+Added: News watch now can be disabled (Thanks iw)
-Fixed: Compatibility issue with http://www.baravalle.it/phpGrabComics (thanks gdusenberry)
-Fixed: Partially fixed auto detect problem with sourceforge.net (Thanks flock)
If IE engine is used , clicking sourceforge rss feeds in GreatNews will prompt to subscribe. But the feeds still won't show on statusbar.

Note: please do not submit nightly builds to BetaNews. These builds are not as stable as public beta!

why shouldn't we submit beta's to betanews (btw i'm not the one submitting them)

Maybe i like to archive old stuff?

Also when scroll with my mouse it sometimes switches to the next unread page and that gets really annoying how do i turn it off or is this a known bug/feature i'm pretty sure it's a feature i just can't figure out how to turn it off.
MY default browser is no long IE look below one link to see why.

These nightly builds are not very stable. Sometimes only existing GreatNews users know what's wrong and can give helpful information so I can fix it right away. And nightly builds are released too frequently to send to BetaNews.

you can config mouse wheel sensitivity in GreatNews.ini

[Advanced]
MouseWheelSensitivity=5

bigger number is less sensitive. The default is 5. You can set it to something like 20 to turn it off.

Is it just me or does that this built drop feed items? It's easy to see what I mean in the following screenshot:

It says 4 unread feed items, but only three are displayed. Never had this problem before this upgrade.

Best,

The right button + wheel to NEXT channel has problems with non read posts.... When I use this and I have a channel with X news.. sometimes some news still unread, but when I'll try to see there are no newa to read.

If I use F8, or click on NEXT, the problem don't apear.

Thanks

I can confirm alex's bug it happens to me as well don't know how to re-produce it yet. I think that leaving a channel will not mark them as read but when you go back to the channel group none will be available to be read.

It's probably fixed in build 360. Please give it a try
