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 [...]
RSS and Atom feeds that aren’t either UTF-8 or ISO-8859-1 have proven difficult to find, so I’m calling out to all of you. If you read or publish feeds that are in a character set other than these two, please post them here in the comments. We’ve just finished adding iconv support to SimplePie, and [...]
The newest release of SimplePie is here! There is barely a single unchanged line of code in this release, as we’ve been working for months to completely overhaul the entire SimplePie engine, and we’ve added several new features while we were at it. I could sit here and go over each and every things that’s [...]

I know that a lot of people are using Magpie RSS to power their del.icio.us sidebar links, so I figured I’d throw out a code sample showing how you could use SimplePie for the same task. If you need to come to terms with why SimplePie might be a better choice of RSS parser, check [...]
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 [...]
SimplePie 0.95 is now available. Anyone who is using any other version of SimplePie should update now. Major features/changes in this version include: Much improved support for reading all feeds, resolved display issues with < code > and < pre > tags, and added the ability to alter the display of feed dates using PHP’s [...]
