  1. There's only one word to describe this upgrade: Brilliant! I know I had some issues with PulpFiction and that FSS was looking into them. I did not expect them to be addressed this soon, or to be resolved so effectively! Specifically, I horde all articles so that in the future, I can use PulpFiction as a launching pad for web searches in the future. The only problem was that searching with PulpFiction was taking a bit longer than I was comfortable with (though I have 20,000+ articles to search through). With this new version, searching PulpFiction only takes seconds, even on my lowly iBook G3 700!

    Good job and keep up the great work! Would any PF users like to chime in with their folder organization schemes? I had been organizing articles into folders based on their feed, but not this is redundant given the feed view. I'd like to adopt another strategy but I'm not sure what would be the best approach.

  2. I create labels for the various categories - sports, world events, Mac news, etc. - and assign each subscription the appropriate label. I then filter articles into matching folders (or subfolders, as "Mac News" is a subfolder of "Technology").

  3. Great Work!

    BTW, Is GROWL supported in the lite version. So far I've been unable to configure it...

  4. Growl is triggered through filters and actions, so no, Lite does not support Growl.

  5. I like all the improvements except removing html form the title. Quite often the title is enough for me to want to read the article and a drag & drop the title to Safari. Hopefully in a future version you might add this to the prefs along with keeping the folders permanently closed when dragging said title across the folders to Safari. I went back to 1.0.2 because the html wasn't working in titles anymore. 🙁

  6. RLD, the ability to drag the article to Safari should have been working still. There appears to be a bug from the drag and drop rewrite that's causing it to not work. Thanks for the heads up on it. The removing HTML from title's wasn't referring to it. Before it was possible to get a title that showed up as "artilce title" before. It'll now appear as "article title".

    With the v1.1 release you can still control-click (right click) on an article and choose the "Open in External Browser" option to open the article in Safari. As well as set preference to open articles in the external browser. Then all you have to do is hit return to open it in safari.

    Please send items like this to bugs (at) fresh squeeze . c o m. The odds of it being fixed are much greater if you do then if you post to Erik's blog.
