I’ve been on a roll with SimplePie development lately (if you couldn’t already tell). Version 0.93 will probably be released in the next day or so, and at that point should be feature-complete. The remaining Pre-1.0 releases (0.94, 0.95, 0.96, etc.) will be dedicated to compatibility fixes. There are a lot of poorly coded feeds […]
In record time, SimplePie 0.92 is now available. This release adds all sorts of things such as better (and faster) caching, a user agent string, smarter handling of problematic characters and entities, and a fix for Mr. Dunstan’s feed. For those who are skeptical of “yet another feed parser”, or are hesitant to switch to […]

Here’s the problem: While working on SimplePie initially, I used copies of Dunstan’s Atom and RSS feeds because I felt that they’d be representative of most people’s decently well-formed feeds.

I got back from a week vacation (yes, I was on vacation) to see this quiz over at Twenty4.org:
You can get the Windows XP Service Pack 2 full installer (272 MB), or you can wait a few days for the update to become available (in a much smaller size) from Windows Update. Also, for those using Panther, v10.3.5 is now available from Software Update. The only problem is that it doesn’t set the […]
Responses to the release of SimplePie 0.8 have been very positive. SimplePie has accomplished it’s goal of making it easier to create online feed readers, or anything else that requires RSS parsing. The only complaints that I got were mostly speed-related. Most people who sent me feedback thought that SimplePie was just too darn slow. […]
