Updated items

Ewan Grantham asks: What, if any, is the significance of some of the feeds being in blue rather than in black? Is this configurable somewhere?

If a feed is colored in blue, it means that this feed has updated items (the items that were changed after they were posted). The updated items are also colored in blue. After you read all those items again (click on them and wait for 1 second so that they are marked as read), the feed will again become black.

Note that the detection of updated items currently has some problems (an item can be marked as updated when there have been no really significant changes, or multiple different items can be processed as a single item.)

A later version of Syndirella may include an option to disable detecting updated items altogether. (I haven't yet decided; comments on this are appreciated.)

Feature request: If I click on a link in the bottom pane, the resulting page is displayed full screen (which is nice). I keep clicking the back button in the toolbar expect to return to the three-paned view where I was...

Nice program. I like it a lot!

What I'd like to see is next to the feel name, the number of unread items compared to the total number of items:
ie. Slashdot (3/20)

Ugh; if you're going to add feed stats, can you make them as colums I can add/remove/hide?

"Slashdot(3/20)" looks kludged and ugly, and frankly I don't care -how many- new items there are, or even how many total (since that's fixed in the feed properties anyway). Marking a feed's title as bold if it has new items is sufficient functionality; Keep It Simple please!
