New Jäger version available | Nicole Simon's Useful Sounds

New Jäger version available

28.10.2004 - 02:13 / filled under default

David Janes from Jäger just announced a new version on the ipodder mailinglist. While I was not satisfied with the last one, perhaps some of the new features are interessting enough. Check out their blog for all the new stuff.

But one big fault still remains - and when I read 'mousing' and 'right-click' I know it still has not changed: You are doomed in Jäger to use your mouse plus to use it through several submenues to get the things done as you like them. Settings are not available unless you dig (sorry: click) *very* deep in it's menue structure.

Hei, even Mac application can have keyboard accessible menues and functions! (No decent keyboard support as requested by windows standard and yes, even mac is my number one reason for dumping software at once.)

And while reading this:

In addition, Jäger 1.6.2 adds attachment expiration. Attachments that are downloaded now expire after 7 days, unless marked as "never expires". A future release will allow more detailed control of the expiration period on a blog-by-blog basis
Am I the only one here to ask for a "do not expire unless heard feature based on this little checkbox in my itunes" or something like it?

I will try it out next week. For now it does not look like I have a decent podcasting application available which does not drive me nuts right away - and I will stay with my right-clicking solutions in bloglines ...
