I just finished fixing some bugs in the synchronization code in RSS Bandit and now the feature should work as expected. All I can say is, "Wow". I've just taken it for granted that I can open an instance of my mail client on different machines and get the same state but the same isn't the case for my news aggregator. Being able to click 'Download Feeds' on startup and have everything I read/flagged/replied to at home or at work synced up is totally sweet.

The only thing preventing a release now is that I'd like Torsten and I to come up with a way to improve the responsiveness of the GUI when loading feeds with thousands of items. On my machine where I have 3 months of posts from blogs like Weblogs @ ASP.NET it definitely seems like the user interface is creaking and groaning. This shouldn't take more than a few days so we should be on track for a release this week.

Can't wait for the sync feature!

Perhaps BackgroundWorkerThread for .NET 1.1 by Juval to help speed up the GUI a bit?

The sync feature looks interesting but you don't inherit the proxy and authentication settings from the network settings tab. Because of this, I can't sync my feeds to my msn storage. Could you put in a fix to honor the proxy and authentication settings?

Thanks very much!
