About a month ago we released the first cut of the Nightcrawler edition of RSS Bandit and promised that there'd be a bug fix release within a month. So exactly 30 days and about 100,000 downloads later, we're shipping the bug fix version of the Nightcrawler release.

Download the installer from here. Differences between v1.3.0.38 and v1.3.0.42 below.

Translations

  • This release is available in the following languages; German, English, Brazilian Portuguese, Traditional Chinese, Polish, Serbian, Russian, Japanese, Italian, Spanish, Bulgarian, and Turkish.

Installer

  • The application can now be installed on computers that only have v2.0 of the .NET Framework available.

  • A mini-application for editing the keyboard shortcuts used by the RSS Bandit has now been added. To locate the application, look in the RSS Bandit application folder which is usually "C:\Program Files\RssBandit" for the application named ShortcutsEditor.exe

Feeds

  • Fixed issue where the subscription wizard picks the first feed found on a web page in auto-discovery mode instead of displaying the list of feeds found so users can choose which feed to add to their subscriptions.

  • Feed autodiscovery now uses the Firefox icon () which will also be used by IE 7, Outlook 12 and FeedDemon for indicating when feeds have been found on a web page within RSS Bandit.

  • The '+' that indicates that inline comments are available for a post now controlled by the Tools->Options->Display->Display Related Items as discussion threads checkbox. Note that this feature is now off by default.

  • Fixed issue that feed validation/autodiscovery/search in subscription wizard could not be cancelled

  • Fixed problems with processing titles in Atom feeds containing markup characters. We now pass all of Phil Ringnalda's Atom title test cases. .

  • Fixed issue where the title of first post in the feed is used as the feed title in some RSS 1.0 feeds..

  • Fixed issue where some comments aren't shown inline for some feeds that support <wfw:commentRss>

  • Fixed issue where the blog post is repeated as the first comment in some feeds that support <wfw:commentRss>.

Newsgroups

  • Added ability to create new posts in a newsgroup.
  • Subscribing to a newsgroup no longer asks for username and password per subscription since this information is specified when the news server was first added.

  • Subscribing to multiple newsgroups at once now supported.

  • Fixed bug where subscribing to newsgroups via Tools->Newsgroups results in 'Input string was not in a correct format' error on attempting to download posts from the newsgroup.

  • Fixed issue where downloading messages from newsgroups times out. This was fixed by setting the maximum number of items to download to 1000.

  • Fixed issue where subscribing to password protected newsgroups results in "Credentials property not an instance of NetworkCredential" error.

Synchronization with NewsGator Online

  • Fixed issue where when downloading feedlist from NewsgatorOnline the following error occurs; "Feedlist download failed with error: Object reference not set to an instance of an object".

  • Fixed issue that downloading feedlists from Newsgator Online never stops
