Release Notes

Release version 1.1.1 includes two minor bug fixes:
  • Bug fix - "Number of feed items to import" property was not functioning.
  • Bug fix - apostrophe's in RSS item description were showing up as "'".

Release version 1.1 contains two new features:
  • Feed source selection - allows the user to select an internal Sharepoint list RSS feed via the List Picker toolpart (for MOSS users). WSS users can still enter the URL of the listfeed manually. Note: if entering the internal feed source url manually, do not include a host. For example, if I wanted to access an internal feed at http://myserver/_layouts/listfeed.aspx?List=2f137aab-a2a1-4eca-97df-f0507731da24, I would simply enter /_layouts/listfeed.aspx?List=2f137aab-a2a1-4eca-97df-f0507731da24, intentionally leaving out the http://myserver part. The reason for this is to honor AAM (Alternate Access Mapping) support.
  • Custom XSLT formatting - allows the user to enter custom XSL to format the output data. This is similar to how the Content Query WebPart works and can be used for branding purposes to or simply to customize the look of the RSS data. To make XSLT development easier, we've included a "raw XML" view to show all the XML data that is available to be formatted with XSL.

If you already have version 1.0/1.1.0 installed on your machine, simply click "Repair" during the installation procedure (this may overwrite some of your webpart settings as well any customisations to the supporting .css or .js files in the 12 Hive).
