Raggle 0.3.0 Released
Fri Feb 20 17:34:58 2004, Link

Two Raggles in less than two days? Unbelievable! Raggle version 0.3.0 is out. Here's a list of changes since 0.2.x:

  • preliminary web interface (via WEBrick)
  • 'a' to add feeds inside Raggle
  • -A, --ascii : non-ANSI window borders
  • HTTP 1.0 Basic authentication (ie http://user:pass@foo.com/index.rss)
  • better HTTP 304 response handling
  • better conditional HTTP GET (Last-Modified, If-Modified-Since headers)
  • Win32 support (web interface only at the moment)
  • ignore "a " and "the " prefix when sorting feeds
  • manual update works in non-manual mode now (to force update). same as passing SIGALRM to Raggle
  • SIGHUP invalidates all feeds and starts feed grabbing thread
  • categories (web interface only)
  • view source (bound to '\')
  • added --max-items (max # of items/feed)
  • added 0, $ keybindings (beginning and end of list)
  • get Win32 proxy from registry
  • config.rb overrides settings in default config on a per-key basis, rather than replacing them
  • fixed SSL support
  • --edit accepts -1 for batch operations
  • preliminary DRb interface
  • updated mono theme (for terminals with bold, w/o color)
  • screwy feeds don't (shouldn't?) kill feed grabbing any more
  • parallel feed grabbing
  • faster rendering (less refreshes, cache reflow)
  • --add can take a URL (ie raggle -a 'url')
  • whole slew of bug-fixes

And here are the relevant URLs:

I've also contacted the Debian and Gentoo maintainers, so hopefully we'll have some fresh Raggle packages for both in the very near future.

Page Updates

No new version yet, but there are several minor page updates.

Also, we finally have a Links page, which contains links to RSS directories, RSS "specifications", and *gasp* other RSS aggregators.
