This is a new development release mostly focussing on usability. There is also a fix
of a long-standing bug that search folder searches were not case-insensitive as
documented.

Changes

    * #907: Add new search folder property that allows hiding read items
      (Lars Windolf, suggested by Jeff Fortin)

    * Now always shows the unread count of a search folder (instead of the
      item count) in the feed list
      (Lars Windolf)

    * Now search folders are automatically rebuild when rules are changed
      (Lars Windolf)

    * Adds a new simple focus plugin that adds transparency on the feed list
      when it is not focussed.
      (sunwire)

      (sunwire)

    * Fixes #192: wrong button order of media player in RTL locales
      (patch by GreenLunar)

      count is displayed on mass-updates and a per-feed info on single
      feed updates
      (Lars Windolf)

    * Fixes #809: Usability of feed fetching errors.
      (Lars Windolf)

It's Christmas so let's have a small present for everyone. Here is a new unstable release.

There are some visual fixes concerning favicons and fixing the blurry trayicon. Additionally many early testers of "reader mode" asked for ways to disable it. So there is now a global preference to disable it altogether and there is also a button to right top of the headline view to toggle it on demand while you read.

This release also fixes a longstanding bug where search folder rules where not case insensitive as intenteded. So you searches might not have found every hit they should have.

Changes

    * Prevent endless loop on favicon discovery
      (Lars Windolf)

    * #903: Prevent endless loop in feed autodiscovery
      (reported by Leiaz)

    * #912: Allow mutiple feed in same libnotify notification
      (Tasos Sahanidis)

    * Further favicon discovery improvements: now detects all types of
      Apple Touch Icons, MS Tile Images and Safari Mask Icons
      Fixes #440
      (Lars Windolf)

    * Add reader mode toggle in the item view
      (Lars Windolf)

    * #876 Add reader mode preference
      (Lars Windolf)

    * Implement support for subscribing to LD+Json metadata
      listings e.g. concert or theater event listings
      (Lars Windolf)

    * Provide the default icon for feeds with no favicon as SVG
      for nicer rendering in wide view. Drop some unused icons.
      Replace tray icon with scalable version.
      (Lars Windolf)

    * Fixes CRITICAL on trayicon plugin init
      (Lars Windolf)

    * Fixes #884: Content of wrong feed is shown
      (Leiaz, reported by Michael F. Schönitzer)

    * Fixes #900: Flatpak needs icon named after appid
      (Mikel Olasagasti)

    * Fixes #908, #332: Search folder are not case-insensitive as documented
      (reported by Heinz Peter Hippenstiel and Jeff Fortin)

    * Fixes #899: Truncated articles (on 'Extract full content')
      (reported by Leiaz)

    * #902: Updated Polish translation

This is a new 1.13 development release with a lot of great improvements including zoom reset using Ctrl-0, enabling Webkit Intelligent Tracking Protection, CSS color updated on theme switch, progress bar support when loading web pages and many other improvements.

Thanks for the many contributions!!!

With roughly three weeks more of the month have a look in the issue tracker for "help-wanted" and "easy-to-fix" labels!

Deprecations

Feature cleanups continue. With this release we drop

  • CDF channel support (a very old and rare Microsoft RSS alternative)
  • PIE aka. Atom 0.2/0.3 support
  • RSS namespace "blogChannel" support

While I'm sorry to see blogChannel support gone, with Userland gone, there is just no one out there using it anymore.
It was a nice feature everyone sharing the subscription list explicitely...

@lwindolf lwindolf released this Aug 28, 2020 · 243 commits to master since this release

This is a new development release adding a new major feature "Reader mode".
"Reader mode" is always on filtering all feed content and HTML5 enriched content
to remove ads, visual noise and any left-over website navigation elements that
might end up in your feeds content.

Please test the feature and give feedback on your experiences!

Additionally Youtube videos from MediaRSS feeds are now automatically
rendered and there are two new powerful search folder rules available to match
parent folder and subscription URL.

Feature Deprecations

Combined View

1.13 will drop the combined view aka 2-pane view mode. The feature was not
maintained well, did not provide the same functionality as the 3-pane modes and
did not scale well. Removing it will significantly simplify the code base and allows
to implement "Reader mode" for the now single-item/single-document only views.

"photo" namespace

The rarely seen photo namespace support has been dropped to simplify the
rendering templates.

Disabling JS in internal browser

To allow for "Reader mode" which (using Readability.js) is Javascript based
we now cannot disable Javascript in the item view anymore. The global preference
for disabling Javascript has been renamed to indicate that it only affects loading
websites in the internal browser.

Changes

    * #846, #864, #735: Fix main menu/toolbar not being translated
      (reported by nesfla, Qik000, SingleMalt2104)

    * #854: Adding new search folder options to match
      subscription source URL and parent folder name.
      (suggested by muhlinux)

    * #851: Add accessibility check to code tests
      (Lars Windolf)

    * #851: Fix accessibility annotations for several combo boxes.
      (Lars Windolf)

    * #850: Fix embedded youtube video bug.
      (reported by sblondon)

    * #765: Embed YouTube videos from MediaRSS feeds
      (Mikel Olasagasti)

    * #749: Add Readability.js library (Apache 2.0 licensed)
      and auto-apply Readability.js to all headlines
      (Lars Windolf)

    * Drop unused glade/google_source.ui
      (Lars Windolf)

    * Drop support of combined view mode, this is necessary
      to add rich content support which relies on DOM
      transformation and Readability.js
      (Lars Windolf)

    * Drop ns_photo support, as it is rarely used and
      allows us to get rid of XSLT extra handling
      (Lars Windolf)

    * #747: Font improvements
      (Azhar Mithani)

    * #250 Update some dialog labels
      (GreenLunar)

    * #803: Fix legacy links to mailing list and IRC in
      documentation.
