Installed without a problem on my PPC6700 (WM5) using the .exe (from my XP).  
The site manger is working very well.  Able to add single feeds and delete 
single feeds.  This is a great addition!  I will play with this some more, but 
it looks like it is now my primary RSS reader (over smartRSSPPC).  If I 
encounter bugs, I'll let you know, but out of the gates it looks great!

  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,
