Urssus: no release today

I had planned to re­lease a new ver­sion to­day, but there are too many untest­ed fea­tures. A list:

  • Feed re­order­ing via drag and drop

  • Unique ap­p. The sec­ond uRSSus just makesthe first one op­er­ate.

  • Lots of refac­­tor­ing to cleanup View/­­Mod­­el re­lat­ed things.

Since it's a lot of code, it will need a day or two of test­ing. Or a week.

Urssus: July 31st - Many small things (with not-too-cool screenshot)

Helped by the test­ing by vgar­vardt, many is­sues and pos­si­ble fea­tures have been fixed or im­ple­ment­ed in the last two days. Here's an in­com­plete list:

  • Im­­ple­­men­t­ed (and lat­er fixed) prop­er close-­­to-­­tray

  • Mark­ing a fold­er as read marks all its chil­­dren

  • The re­set fil­ter but­­ton works like Akre­­ga­­tor's

  • The tray changes its icon when there are un­read items (and shows a count in the tooltip). Icon work need­ed, though.

  • Dou­ble click on a post opens in ex­ter­­nal brows­er

  • De­­fault re­fresh pe­ri­od is con­­fig­urable (no UI yet)

  • The feed tooltip shows un­read count

  • Win­­dow size and po­si­­tion is mem­o­rized

  • Po­si­­tion of the split­ters is mem­o­rized

  • Tool­bar ti­­tles are now rea­­son­able (n­ev­er tried to right-click a Qt tool­bar be­­fore)

  • Bet­ter tem­­plates for feed and post lay­outs

  • Un­read item­s/feeds are now shown bold

  • The about win­­dow has the right ti­­tle and icon, and does­n't ap­­pear in the taskbar.

There is al­most cer­tain­ly go­ing to be a re­lease to­mor­row.

And here's a pic­ture:


Urssus: July 30th (way too late). Now with users!

At least three peo­ple have tried urssus (in­clud­ing me ;-) and over 80 have down­load­ed it. The two that told me any­thing say it's a nice ap­p.

I hope it keeps im­prov­ing.

Right now, it has about a dozen less bugs (or more fea­tures) thanks to the is­sue re­ports by vgar­vardt!

Urssus: July 30th (way too early). new feature - twitter!

I have a twit­ter ac­coun­t. I nev­er found a use for it.

Now I have one. I will post there what­ev­er in­ter­est­ing thing I find. Just right-click, "Post to Twit­ter" and voilá:


Here you can see the win­dow, which is filled au­to­mat­i­cal­ly with the post ti­tle and URL (made tiny, 140 chars is not much!), with the clas­sic char count­down.

Al­so in the back­ground, some news and my twit­ter ac­coun­t.

BTW: Uwe was awe­some.

Hello, future Roberto, here's a hand!

So, I need­ed a python script to cre­ate tinyurl­s. Google gets me here where cred­it is giv­en to this guy. Of course that guy's so­lu­tion is a bit bro­ken, check the com­ments ;-)
