Greetings to all!

New beta is available - http://pda.jasnapaka.com/prssr/beta/

Mostly bug fixing relase, 2 features added:
1. Initial load of feeds is moved to the backound thread -> no long
waiting on startup. When using Summary View, it shows the number of
read/unread only for loaded feeds
2. zlib library. I have to add this library to support gzip compression.
 Now pRSSreader asks HTTP servers for compressed html files. It saves
the amount of transferred bytes (if you are on GPRS you really
appreciate this). Furthermore there is an errror in skweezer, which
sends uncompressed version corrupted (no accents), but gzipped version
is ok.

What's New:
-ADD: feeds are loaded in the background
-ADD: zlib for receiving content in gzipped format (needed for correct
working of Skweezer)

-FIX: When 'Hide read items' was active, items were displayed after
restarting the pRSSreader
-FIX: HTML optimalizer -> HTML optimizer (in resources)
-FIX: Flag/Unflag message is enabled/disabled according to the selection
(main window context menu)
-FIX: bad cells in the formatting table (image and 'cached' text were
not aligned)
-FIX: crash on generating playlists
-FIX: when caching enclosures, there was not a countdown for remaining items
-FIX: when enclosure caching is finished, feed items on the main windows
are refresh to reflect result of caching
-FIX: Copy URL did not work in CNewsDlg
-FIX: When creating new folder in CMoveDirDlg and tapping enter, new
folder was not used in destination path
-FIX: Update requests are queued when updating
-FIX: when moving empty dir -> crash
-FIX: .html extension was not added for files with dot (.) in the name
-FIX: if site was updated and main window was not foreground window,
items were not refreshed
-FIX: After marking items read/unread/new/flagged/unflagged selection is
-FIX: ugly memory leak
and more...

Beta2 is available in all languages (Czech, Dutch, English, French,
Spanish). Thanks to all localizators for their prompt work. Need some
one to check the French version and let me know if it is ok - YoLoLo
(the maintainer of French version) is on vacation, so he is not able to
check it.

Recently, the UPX (packer for binary executables) was enhanced to
support binaries for pocket pc. So, I use it to reduce the size of
binaries. Now, pRSSreader should take significantly fewer space then
previous versions. So do not be scared that binaries are such small, it
is not an error :)

Hope this beta will be stable enought. I plan 14 days of
testing/bugfixing and if all things will go smoothly, then the official
release will come.

Konstantin, could you check if the memory leak you've reported is still
there? And as you may noticed, a lot of bugs reported by you were fixed
too, so please check them again if they are gone. Thanks. The silence
means, they are gone :)

Enjoy the testing!

PS: Hope I did not forget for something.
