Liferea 1.13.2 released

This is a new development release adding a new major feature “Reader mode”. “Reader mode” is always on filtering all feed content and HTML5 enriched content to remove ads, visual noise and any left-over website navigation elements that might end up in your feeds content.

Please test the feature and give feedback on your experiences!

Additionally Youtube videos from MediaRSS feeds are now automatically rendered and there are two new powerful search folder rules available to match parent folder and subscription URL.

Feature Deprecations

Combined View

1.13 will drop the combined view aka 2-pane view mode. The feature was not maintained well, did not provide the same functionality as the 3-pane modes and did not scale well. Removing it will significantly simplify the code base and allows to implement “Reader mode” for the now single-item/single-document only views.

“photo” namespace

The rarely seen photo namespace support has been dropped to simplify the rendering templates.

Disabling JS in internal browser

To allow for “Reader mode” which (using Readability.js) is Javascript based we now cannot disable Javascript in the item view anymore. The global preference for disabling Javascript has been renamed to indicate that it only affects loading websites in the internal browser.
