How to upgrade to

There was a bug in the algorithm for detecting the same messages
(articles). Because the bug was fixed, all old messages appear to be
new ones. So will want to avoid duplicate messages in your feeds.

The simplest way of upgrade is:
1) read all your messages
2) save your subscription list (in site manager)
3) uninstall prssr.
4) clear the cache (delete the content of the folder)
5) install prssr (
6) import your subscription list (in site manager)
7) do the update and mark all read
