rnews 0.90 released

rnews 0.80 released

New developer added, and a new release. This release has been a long time coming (it's hard to improve on perfection, eh?), but brings with it several new features, particularly in the area of security, use of AJAX, and code restructuring. See the complete list of features above. The included versions of MagpieRSS and Snoopy have been upgrade to 0.72 and 1.2.3, respectively.

Database schema has changed somewhat, so upgrade by exporting to OPML, using the web install interface, and importing from OPML.... read more

rss feed now available

Appropriately enough, an rss feed for rnews information (including new file releases) is now available at http://sourceforge.net/export/rss2_projnews.php?group_id=83806&rss_fulltext=1

new release - rnews-0.62

This release is an update for a few things - mostly formatting and rendering, but now parses pubDate in addition to dc:date, and a security fix. I recommend upgrading, keeping in mind that rnews_config.inc has been renamed to rnews_config.php. rnews-0.62 is available at http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/rnews/rnews-0.62.tar.gz?download
