A few News Items

Syndicated feeds are now using a new LASTN style as described in lj_dev in this post. I know asciident mentioned the post last night, but I wanted to bring up the fact that it has been implemented. No announcement has been made of this fact at this point. This implementation may be subject to change. Should I notice anything new in the implementation of this feature, I will make a new post to the community describing it.

Currently, the "Recent Entries" view of a feed Lists the time of the last 10 entries, with the subject provided by the feed. It also lists the website which is taken from the feed information, as well as providing a link to add the feed or view the User Info of the feed.

Additionally, as was mentioned last night by adcott, there is now a raw listing of the feed information. This information will be used for the tool which has been collecting and generating the weekly information posted in the community on readership numbers.

There is now information (descriptions, etc) on 297 feeds. I will have new readership numbers up this weekend using the new data, hopefully.

Thanks for all your help in getting a list together, and keep up the good work.
