SimplePie Beta Testing

Projects and Code162 words1 minutes to read

Rather than completely hold off the next version of SimplePie until it’s totally complete (which appears to be taking some time), I’ve decided to make the current Beta versions available for testing purposes. Although it appears to be fairly stable, I wouldn’t recommend this for a production site just yet.

If you’d like to test out the current Beta build (2004.12.03), you can do so a couple of ways:

Please take the time to test it with your feeds that you read. I’ve also enabled an option that allows you to see how the feed’s source code is modified by SimplePie. This is great for debugging and for helping test.

If you have any bug reports, please list them in the Bug Report forum. The same goes for feature requests and questions and comments.

Thanks for helping to make SimplePie great!
