Bug fixes and new features are here in Feed Notifier 2.5! Configurable colors!

New Pop-up Options

  • Wait if hovering: Don’t advance to the next pop-up if you’re hovering over it with your mouse.
  • Stay on top: Now you can choose to not have pop-ups stay on top, if you wish.
  • Border size: You can configure the size of the pop-up border.
  • Border color: You can configure the color of the pop-up border – and this can be done on a per-feed basis to help distinguish between items from different feeds!
  • Right-click links to copy the link URL.

Other Features

  • Allow fallback on Windows-configured proxy.
  • Improved cache mechanism.
  • Proxy info is encoded on disk and displayed like a password in the user interface.
  • Checks for software updates every 24 hours, not just on app startup.

Bug Fixes

  • 15 second socket timeout (was infinite, which caused problems with bad feeds).
  • Use black text color in pop-ups, regardless of system theme.
  • Use proxy when downloading feed favicons.
  • Removed webkit and html theme code remnants that weren’t being used.
