- Downloading is much more stable and resilient now
I literally looked at hundreds of downloads and its errors and made NewsRob much more resilient. This should make a huge, noticeable difference.
Feedback is appreciated.
- UI changes
As suggested by Julian Felke I thought again about the icons that indicate if an article is downloaded.
Now a world globe represents a downloaded web page, a solid phone represents the downloaded feed content including the images, a hollow phone an article that still needs to be downloaded and a hollow phone with a red dot an article that NewsRob tried to download but failed with an error that NewsRob believes is not recoverable with another attempt.
I also changed the layout and the "star" button is removed. Instead starring and unstarring is now available from the context menu accessible by a long press on the article.
As a result of the new layout scrolling in the list is faster now.
- Alternate content is now shown properly
Also reported by Julian was a bug regarding the alternate content. NewsRob now picks the right alternate content. Before sometimes enclosures, e.g. an image, were used.
This affects the download of the web page content as well as the result of launching the browser with "Show in Browser".
- Display of umlauts fixed
In some cases umlauts were not displayed properly.
Please let me know if you still find examples for umlauts that are rendered incorrectly.
