FeedDemon 3.5 Pre Release is out with new features

My beloved and the world’s best feed reader has just seen a new update after a long hiatus. The project’s sole developer, Nick Bradbury, announced the availability of FeedDemon 3.5 pre release yesterday. The new version came with several bug fixes, as usual, and some new features that are worth checking out.

One of the significant changes in FeedDeome 3.5 is that Watches can now be limited to specific folders. Previously, it was impossible to create separate Watches targeting specific feeds. I used to work around this problem by excluding feeds from Watches, but it wasn’t a good fix. Now I can create individual watches for each feed.


Watches now also show feed items from yesterday and tomorrow, which enables easy viewing of all items published on these two days. There is another improvement in the Watche section: watched keywords now appear highlighted in different background color to distinguish between multiple watch keywords.


FeedDemon 3.5 also introduces a new Time Cards display view in the Newspaper mode which looks like this:


Time Cards will work on only those machines that have Internet Explorer 8 installed.

The other important change is the support for OAuth for Twitter feeds which improves security.

There are numerous other improvements like the ability to search only the posts displayed in the newspaper, search on Facebook from within FeedDemon, significantly faster response when syncing with Google Reader, and of course, a minor redesign of newspaper view and reports, as well as the subscription home.

One feature I miss however, is the Styles. Previously, there are about 6 different view styles available. Now there are only two – Surfer and Time Cards. Nick says that more styles are likely to be added before the final release of v3.5.

The task manager is ideal for real-time analysis of CPU and memory utilization. It even displays a short history of CPU utilization in the form of a graph. You get a small time-window, about 30 seconds or so, depending on how large the viewing area is.

How to Schedule Changes to Your Facebook Page Cover Photo

Facebook’s current layout, the so called Timeline, features a prominent, large cover photo that some people are using in a lot of different creative ways. Timeline is also available for Facebook Pages that people can use to promote their website or business or event. Although you can change the cover photo as often as you like, it’s meant to be static – something which you design and leave it for at least a few weeks or months like a redesigned website. However, there are times when you may want to change the cover photo frequently and periodically to match event dates or some special promotion that you are running or plan to run. So, here is how you can do that.
