Great release, over all it seems more stabe.

Here are some issues I am having.

rss feed from boingboing.net does not download images

rss feed from engaget.com down loads the whole feed and all images
every time update is run. I set the article limit to 10 but it still
seems to grab everything.

the url input field for new feeds is still to small as per my previous
thread. the character limit needs to be increased.
