Template for adding new sites:

If you are adding new site, you can define default settings for it, e.g.
turn on online content caching, image caching, etc. configured only via
registry (I will post details later in a separate mail)

How To Install

1. Backup your OPML file.
2. Uninstall 1.3.2 (or older)
3. Install the new 1.3.3beta1
4. Import OPML file

You might encounter some troubles when upgrading form previous version.
If you decide to upgrade, report all upgrade related problems.

Bug Reporting
Each bug in a separate mail, please. Do NOT write one mail with a list
of found bug. It is harder for me to process it.

Logging feature is disabled by default, you can enable it by setting:
HKCU\Software\DaProfik\pRSSreader, LogLevel[DWORD] = 5,

Nowadays, there are 8 localizations available. It tooks me some time to
prepare the diff for all localizations. Please, be patient, I have still
some very important work to do, which has to be finished before
Christmas. The updates will be prepared during the beta testing. I will
let you know about that fact.


There are some registry tweaks that are not published yet, I will do it
in a separate mail.

This beta is not rock stable. I made some tests and results are quite
good. So, do not forget to backup your OPML file. The backup of PDA is
also recommended. pRSSreader should not make such big troubles, but it
is for sure.

That's all for now,
