Reinvented Software is proud to announce the release of Feeder 1.2. Feeder is an application for creating, editing and publishing RSS feeds on Mac OS X. Version 1.2 introduces full support for working with the iTunes RSS extensions announced with iTunes 4.9, including an iTunes Music Store preview.
Feeder is packed with thoughtful features to enhance the experience of creating and managing feeds from start to finish including auto-complete and templates to save repetitive typing, automatically updating publication dates and much more. Feed content can be rich with images, links and formatting: Feeder’s editing features help you add these easily and generates a preview to show how your feed will look in a newsreader or RSS-aware browser.
Feeder 1.2 includes full editing support for feeds that use iTunes RSS extensions introduced with iTunes 4.9 and has many convenience features for podcasters wanting to create iTunes-aware feeds, including enclosure file uploads and an iTunes preview. Now podcasters can see exactly how their podcast will look when listed in the iTunes Music Store before submitting their feed and without having to wait for iTunes to update.
Before publishing, Feeder validates feeds against the RSS 2.0 specification and, if the extensions are used, the iTunes RSS specification. Feeder can publish feeds and upload enclosure files using FTP, Secure FTP or .Mac.
Feeder requires Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later and costs $29.95. Educational discounts are also available. Feeder 1.2 is a free upgrade for registered 1.x users.
