I intend to keep working like this for a couple of weeks, and see how far I can get in feature parity to akregator.
No, I don't expect to reach feature parity, I only want to strive for it. SInce I lack the focusand/or energy for a multi year commitment it requires to write the average free software, I want to see how far a sprint gets me.
To my surprise, only 9 days into the project, feature parity is at hand.
What's not done?
Some feed properties (custom archiving modes, mark as read on arrival)
Fix article filtering (it's not quite broken, but interacts badly with many things)
Implement app preferences dialog
Filtering by article status
Export as OPML
And some things in the backend, which are not proper features.
What have I done today?
New articles notification via systray
Custom update intervals per-feed
Made Feed.unreadCount() fast enough
Fixed a lot of bugs (none of which crashed uRSSus, take that Akregator! ;-)
And still I have written only 1066 lines of code, according to sloccount.
