Accidental Drag&Drop in HTML Pane Fixed

Many bug reporters mentioned accidentally subscribing to arbitrary text "URLs" by selecting stuff in the HTML pane and then unwillingly dragging it. This always led to a new subscription in the feed list.

The new releases 1.6.6 and 1.7.6 provide a fix requiring links to be dragged over the feed list. When dragging and dropping in the HTML pane or elsewhere in the window nothing happens now.

Google Reader Label Support Added

Many users have asked for quite some time... Yesterday we added Google Reader label support to git. So now you get Google Reader labels as folders in Liferea. This sync feature was contributed by Peter Oliver and Sergey Snitsaru.

Right now labels are only sync'ed from Google to Liferea, but not yet the other way around.

Support will first be included with 1.7.6

TinyTinyRSS API Change

TinyTinyRSS has changed the JSON API in an incompatible way with tt-rss release 1.5. If you are using the tt-rss support with Liferea 1.7.5 you will not be able to connect to tt-rss 1.5+ anymore.

Support for the new tt-rss JSON API will be provided with the next unstable release of Liferea 1.7.6. If you really need to use tt-rss in the meantime please use the latest code from our git repository.

Also starting with Liferea 1.7.6 you will not be able to access tt-rss 1.4 setups anymore. Please upgrade your tt-rss to the newest release.

Added libindicate Support

Previously we were asked why we do not support the Ubuntu menu indicator applet as another notification variant. The reason was simple: all active developers did use Debian so far.

Now Maia Kozheva offered to maintain the indicator code in Liferea, so starting with 1.7.6 we will include a both compile and runtime optional libindicate support. Compile time optional meaning libindicate auto-detection and runtime optional meaning indicator applet auto-detection with tray icon fallback and flexible preferences.
