Some of the new features:

Atom support

atom-logo75px.gif Headline Viewer now supports the Atom syndication standard. Atom is the latest standard for distributing Headlines, Weblog Articles, etc. In addition we still support RSS (in all its versions).
What does this mean for you? In short: lots more content! There are many weblogs and news sources out there supporting Atom now. Just look out for links to Atom feed links and drag them into Headline Viewer.

New user interface

The old category and provider lists have been replaced with a single News Feeds tree. This is a simpler and more intuitive way of navigating and organizing the hundreds of feeds that Headline Viewer is capable of storing.


Also, as you can see from the picture, each feed now indicates how many articles it contains (the number in blue). We also have new icons for the tree. They are as follows:
category.gif - Category
feedfull.gif - Feed contains articles
feedempty.gif - Feed is empty
feeddownloading.gif - Feed is being downloaded
feederror.gif - Feed could not be downloaded

Share articles via email

sendbutton.gifNow with one click of a button you can share interesting articles you find in Headline Viewer with friends and coworkers via email. Just click the "Send" button and Headline Viewer will create an email with the title, description and a link to the article in your email program. You can then address it and add a personal message and send it out.

Major Provider List Update

Over the past few weeks we have been doing a major provider list update. We have done the usual clean out of dead feeds and added some nice new ones. What makes this updated worthy of comment is that we changed all the Moreover feeds to their nice new RSS 2.0 formated feeds. As we include several hundred Moreover feeds in the built in provider list this update took quite a while!

The new Moreover feed list can be seen here:

The new moreover feeds have much better metadata than the old ones. For Headline Viewer users this means the article descriptions are much better. They now contain a 2 to 3 line summary of the article contents. Here's an example:


So what are you waiting for, if you haven't updated already, do it now! Here's how:

"Add to Headline Viewer" Buttons

We have updated the design of our add to Headline Viewer buttons. The new designs can be seen below:

These buttons are for web site owners who want publicize their news feeds and allow one click subscription to their feeds for Headline Viewer users.

On clicking on the button Headline Viewer will ask the user which category to put the feed in. Once a category is selected the feed will be added to it and the latest headlines downloaded.

If you are currently using Headline Viewer, try it by clicking on the button above. It will subscribe you to our News feed.

Remember Headline Viewer must be running for the above to work!

To help you build buttons tailored to your news feed we have created the Headline Viewer button generator. It should be very easy to operate but as always let us know if you have difficulty.

If you decide to use a Headline Viewer button on your site let us know. We may feature your site here or even add it to the master provider listing.
