Feeddo 0.6.2

FEATURE – Integrated YUI Compressor into the build process. Reduce the size of Feeddo.xpi from 330K to 280K. Reduced the size of the update image to less than 180K. Kudos you to Julien Lecomte for the nice work he has done with the YUI Compression utility.

FEATURE – Detecting mac vs windows. On windows the titles of unread articles are in bold to compensate for the poor font rendering capabilities of Windows XP. On mac, the titles are not in bold (reduce noise).

IMPL – Started to user jQuery for DOM traversal and behavior linking. There might be an opportunity to further integrated Miro and jQuery. Note: jQuery is really cool. 20K of all goodness. Give it a try if you are doing Javascript development. More on this in a separate post.

FEATURE – wider left and right margins on wider display. Infrastructure to more generally adapt content representation using CSS for extraWide, wide and narrow displays.

FEATURE – improved scrolling experience by caching entries for the next page as soon as the current page is fully loaded. This applies both to subscription and category pages. (thanks to Michal for suggesting this)

IMPL – refactored the today.bySubscription and category page into a single component.

FEATURE – added an email action to the entry view which will launch the native email client and pre-populate the email message with the content extracted from the article. If you select a range on the page, that is the text that will be used to define the summary of the article.

FIXED – Bug preventing the lookup and rendering of Yahoo News Images because we were not decoding & corrently when reading URLs and converting them in Javascript strings (Thanks to Rajesh for reporting this).

FEATURE – You can now use up and down arrow keys in the article view to scroll first within the content of the article (if it is a large article) and when you reach the end of the document use the same down arrow to jump to the next document. This also works with page up and page down (Thank you to Greg and Muruga for suggesting this).

FEATURE – You can use the mouse scroll wheel to scroll within the content of an article (if the article is large and allows scrolling). You can also use the mousewheel to jump to the next article (when you have reach the end of it). This allows you to read the complete list of articles associated with a subscription, one by one, just using the mouse wheel (Thank you to Michal and Elisa for suggesting this).

Note: For those of you running 0.6, you should transparently get all these enhancements next time you start your browser.
