All right, time for another update - this time from Alien6. Sometimes a .1 update can provide way more, than a version number can say and if you see all the new features and improvements bellow, you can wonder why it is released as such a minor update only. Anyway, during the past weeks, Alien6 publicly Beta tested A6.Times 1.1 and the Beta reached the release now. A6.Times is a RSS feed reader which shows you the feeds in a quite different way as most other RSS feed readers do. Discover an RSS reader like you've never seen before.

Here's a list a new features/fixes found in this new version:

  • New application icon. Supports the following resolutions: 16x16, 32x32, 64x64, 22x22, 44x44
  • Complete menu reorganization
  • Folder "ImportExport" has been replaced by "My Documents" as recommended in Microsoft guidelines (Smartphone only)
  • Sections images have been moved where the database is installed
  • Installer size has been reduced by 50%
  • Preconfigured news sources cannot no longer be moved. However, any custom news source can be moved
  • A6.Times now fully supports the WM_HIBERNATE message. When the operating system requires more memory, it sends to all opened applications the WM_HIBERNATE message. This message means something like: "Give me all resources you can or I will close you if I cannot get enough".
  • Database robustness: The database engine has been completely reviewed in order to eradicate occasional data corruption
  • News engine use of threads has been improved
  • A Start Wizard takes care of the starting process
  • New parameter "Options / Connection / Allow Automatic Connections". When unchecked, no communications are established without user intervention
  • New choices for font size: Smallest, Smaller, Normal, Bigger, Biggest
  • And many more new features.

People who already bought A6.Times can download this new version for free as part of Alien6's free lifetime upgrades policy. However, people who are new to A6.Times can try the new version during 14 days for free. The full version costs US$ 19,95 and is available for both Windows Mobile 5.0 Pocket PCs and Windows Mobile 5.0 Smartphones.

Cheers ~ Arne
