The new release of AmphetaDesk v0.93, the popular syndicated news reader, brings a revolutionary (not evolutionary) change to its design and backend.
While there may not be many new features, *this* is the future of AmphetaDesk, with the stronger modular structure,
powerful new templating system, and advanced wrappers that allow anyone to customize their AmphetaDesk code, creating a display that suits the user's needs.
"For normal people, this means that it'll be a lot easier for your minor feature requests to be fulfilled; the new code allows anyone to write up some instructions for you and, upon completion, the new feature will be added and available to your installation. No more waiting for new
versions," says viciously named developer Morbus Iff.
For developers, this allows you more power to experiment with RSS display,
and how it interacts with the user and other data. The new templating system allows use of any piece of data in an RSS feed, whether AmphetaDesk knows what it means or not. With minor tweaking, all RSS 1.0 modules can be used and displayed, creating a customized AmphetaDesk.
to your needs, Iff continues.
AmphetaDesk is a free, open sourced, cross-platform application that displays the news in a user's browser window, much like Radio Userland or web sites like NewsIsFree.com and Fyuze.
