I also started to make a list with things that need IMHO some changes,
so i'll post it here:
* When Feedreader is open (so not minimzed in thesystemtray) it
does not have a button on the taskbar. Imho having a button on
the taskbar when the app is not minimized would be very usefull.
(added this already as an RFE
* When there is an error with a feed (parse error, hierarchy
error,..) it would be nicer if that feed in the tree would be
coloured red or marked somehow instead of the (annoying) error
message. (Sharpreader has a nice manner of marking feeds with
* Feedreader doesn't save the state of folders
* Like carl set, updated items should be marked in a different way
(sharpreader by example shows them in italic instead of bold)
* In comparison to sharpreader updating my feeds (about 60-70 i
think) takes a lot longer. Sharpreader seems to do this
multithreaded, while feedreader seems to do it one-be-one, could
this be changed?
* also nice would be to show a different icon in the systemtray
when there are unread items
Kind regards and Thanks for the nice app!!
