It seems the option to hide read items in feed view has gone. This proved
(at least to me) to be a highly useful feature for filtering out stuff I
don't want to read. Now marking items as read doesn't hide them from view,
so on larger feeds, you still have to wade through the stuff you don't care
about to get to the stuff you do.
Also, a further request for change: I would like pRSSr to have my babies, I
love it that much.

Thanks,

Tushar.
