SimplePie Beta 2 is now available!

Projects and Code124 words1 minutes to read

After several months of toiling over this release, and the past few weekends pouring over the documentation, we are now very proud to release SimplePie Beta 2!

Nearly every major feature has been enhanced, as well as the addition of several new ones. Be sure to read the upgrade docs if you’re upgrading from Beta 1 or the Preview Release. People who were using trunk builds should be able to just drop this file in as a replacement for any previous simplepie.inc file.

We’ve also added a Wordpress plugin and a MediaWiki extension to the mix. And as always, if you have any questions, comments, or need clarification on anything, be sure to swing by the support forums. We’re there a lot. :) Enjoy!
