FeedDemon 2.1 Release Notes
Changes in FeedDemon 2.1
Added: Popular topics - displays the most popular links that appear within your subscriptions. Select "Popular Topics" from the Browse menu or click the "Popular Topics" toolbutton on the toolbar above FeedDemon's browser.
Added: In order to tighten security, FeedDemon's newspapers now completely disable script (details).
Added: "Blue Vista" newspaper style
Added: YouTube Video Search added to keyword searches in subscription wizard
Added: Integration with Windows Live Writer
