Found a few minutes before lunch, fixes were made and included in 1.3.3.

I was thinking about such a page. The biggest problem is time. I invest
all my free time to the development. I really enjoy writing pRSSreader.
 I try to keep web pages in a reasonable shape - to provide neccessary
info for user, such as how to install, etc.

Features are implemented (from the highest priorities to lowest):
- bug fixing (memory leaks, etc.)
- paied features :-)
- features that I miss
- features that improve usability (better UI, faster downloads, etc.)
- features that are reasonable and are easy to implement
- features that are missing in pRSSreader and other RSS readers have them
- features that should be in pRSSreader, but the implementation is hard
or means large code changes
- very special features

Now, there are two major things to finish for 1.3.3:
- A background service which will do periodical updates (pRSSreader wont
have to run and news will be downloaded to the device). The service will
also handle cradling, so the today plugin wont have to be active.
- support for HW keys. User will define custom action on HW keys (for
main window, for reading window). Those custom actions are for example:
open the top feed menu, open enclosure (play, view), etc.

And one minor thing:
- support for euc-kr codepage - I finally found a tester for it
(pRSSreader is quite popular in Asia)

After finishing those main features, the beta will be released. But I
can not tell when, because I'm really busy with other work :(
So, please, be patient ;)
