Full Specifications

What's new in version 1.0.1
  • You can now adjust the size of the headline list and description box and it will be saved for the next time you use Plucky. Simply drag on the bar above the description box and it will move.
  • Source list is updated when the Source window is closed, allowing for easier testing of new sites. (use the "Refetch Selected Source" menu option)
  • Source URL's defined in RSS files are now used in headlines instead of linking directly to the RSS file.
  • Internal datastructure rewrite for more stability and efficiency.
  • Saving happens more often, providing more consistent backup in the event of a crash.
  • Preference added for Drag&Drop. Drag can now copy the url, the title, the title and url, or a full summary including title, url, and description.
  • Multiple headlines can be selected for deleting or opening.
  • Infinitely faster shutdown speed. It once took 8 seconds for about 800 headlines but now is instantaneous.
  • Added "Refetch Selected Source" menu option that forces a single site to be refreshed immediately, regardless of its "Fetch Once a Day" status
  • Fixed uncaught &, “, ’, ” escapes in XML and HTML. Many escapes are still unhandled, however.
  • Got rid of confusing " 1000 "'s that show up in some headlines
  • Made references to "Sites" and "Sources" more consistent ("Sources" used exclusively)
  • Fixed bug where items were not being marked as read after being selected in dock menu
  • Fixed bug where sites listed as being "Check Once Daily" were being checked anyway. NOTE: You must go back now and change sites to "Check Once" if you want them to be checked once. Remember to hit "Change" for each bookmark to save your changes.
  • Introduced option to show number of unread articles as large or small (in OS X dock)
  • Fixed bug where dock menu was not being updated when items were read in the main window.
  • RSS feeds with a description but no title now use part of the description as the title.
  • Useless "Show Headlines" menu option removed.
  • "Mark Source As Read" menu item added. This changes all visible items to read. If you want every single article changed to read, choose "Library" and then "Mark Source As Read", or use "Mark All As Read"
