SimplePie... Mmmm, Yummy!

I finally cracked the nut on the problem I was having with SimplePie. The compatibility fix I’ve been working on finally works for the two feeds that I was having a problem with. Thanks to Mark IJbema for nudging me in the right direction.

The downside is that it slowed SimplePie down a bit. I think that it’s something I’ll let slide for this version, and try to tackle it for the next. I still need to go back through the list of 300+ feeds to make sure I haven’t broken something else, but assuming that all goes well, I’ll post SimplePie 0.94 sometime tonight or tomorrow.

I hope you all are using it, or are planning to use it. It’s good software, really… and no, I’m not trying to float my own boat. If you find any bugs or would like to see something added, let me know.
