Liferea 1.13.8 released

Here comes a new development release in the 1.13 line.

As with the previous releases there were again many contributions which make working on Liferea a lot of fun. Special thanks to Matthew Horan for the multitude of contributions in this release!

Continued work on ‘Reader Mode’

It contains further work on the new “Reader Mode” feature. While the feature is not yet complete it is much more useful now. “Reader mode” is now more consistent to the global preference and can be consistently ad-hoc toggled via the browser content menu. It now uses the same styling as the headline view does.

What’s still missing for the feature:

  • maybe a per-feed subscription
  • good fallback when it fails (e.g. auto-redirect to normal website and/or a good error message)

TheOldReader improvements

For TheOldReader support for synchronizing title changes and folder changes was implemented. There is also a bugfix to prevent that deleted feeds would reappear later.

Release Candidate for v1.14

Given the progress so far, after one or two more 1.13 releases we will probably see a 1.14 release candidate. Until then some issues with ‘Reader Mode’ and HTML5 feeds have to be ironed out…
