According to the RSS Bandit Product Roadmap there should is a service pack for the current version of RSS Bandit scheduled for release at the end of the summer. The primary issues that  will be fixed by the service pack are

  1. There is a memory corruption bug that manifests itself by RSS Bandit crashing with the following error message, StartMainGui() exiting main event loop on exception.
  2. When RSS Bandit is configured to use proxy settings from Internet Explorer sometimes downloading certain feeds fails with the error (407) Proxy authentication required even though one can access these feeds directly using a web browser with no problem

There are also a number of smaller bug fixes such as better mouse wheel support and no longer producing duplicate entries when the title of an entry changes in the RSS feed. If any of these problems have affected you then download and give us feedback on whether these issues have been fixed or not.

I've started working on the Wolverine release more. The first thing I'll be implementing is NNTP support. So far I've figured out how to list newsgroups on a server, fetch posts, post responses aand the like. One of the questions I'm interested in users answering is whether newsgroups should be put in a seperate category from feeds in the tree view or whether we shouldn't differentiate between newsgroups and feeds in the tree view so one could have a category that contained both feeds and news groups. I'm also interested in finding public NNTP servers so I don't end up coding against just the pecularities of the server.
