 Thu, 26 Feb 2004 12:26:52 -0800 new template for 1.4
RJ contributed a template for zFeeder 1.4, with multiple frames. You can preview screenshot or find it in the downloads section at sourceforge.
 Wed, 25 Feb 2004 03:08:01 -0800 Standalone or module, personal aggregator or website feedreader.

zFeeder has been used so far as an aggregator (even if it does not implement many features of a desktop aggregator) or integrated on websites to provide real-time news (or any other information available as RSS) to visitors. This is possible because it is customizable and you can find the use you want for it. Until now people used it to read their daily news and managed to integrate it standalone or by creating specific modules.

Some examples of modules:
- Bakshi released a module to integrate zFeeder with WordPress.
- A PHP-Nuke module has been created at NukeDiva.
- zFeeder is an integrated part of XHP (eXpandable Home Page), personal homepage software CMS.
- Elise has an article on how to display RSS newsfeeds on a MovableType site.

People like: Laurent, Rachel, Adam have provided great feedback.
Thank you all !

Let me know if you made a module, template, bugfix, etc., so that it can be shared with everyone.
Happy Feedreading !
 Tue, 24 Feb 2004 11:01:03 -0800 zFeeder 1.4 launched !
zFeeder 1.4 supports:
- multiple categories (subscriptions files)
- templates format has been modified to reside in a single file (therefore making it easier to create and modify templates).
- the directory structure, constants and variables names have been changed.

Demo files are included to get you going on how to use and customize it.
Thanks to Laurent (LCX) for the great infojunkie template.
 Thu, 12 Feb 2004 03:40:57 -0800 zFeeder 1.3 launched !
zFeeder 1.3 features:

Thanks goes to Adam Prato for suggestions about it.
 Fri, 6 Feb 2004 00:07:26 -0800 New zFeeder template
RJ has contributed a pure CSS zFeeder template ... you can find it on the downloads section.
You can also see some screenshots here and here. There is also a screenshot showing what you can do with windows's active desktop feature, a little html/css knowhow, and zFeeder here. Yeap, a desktop RSS reader delivering you the latest news, weather or whatever you can find as a RSS source.
