    Removed Bugs, which caused following cases:

  • A bug which made Ziepod crash when user tried to start up Ziepod after its first run has been removed
  • In some cases, while syching feeds at low connection speed, Ziepod used CPU excentively which slowed downed computer
  • Ziepod couldn't have saved episodes when there was already a file with same name. Now it appends numbers to diffenrentiate them.
  • When user maximized Ziepod with visible MainFrame and then switched off the mainframe, Ziepod behaved incorrectly at each restore and maximize action
  • When user used 'New Download' option in 'Tasks' tab, downloaded episode was marked as played. It had to be marked as unplayed
  • Edit box in 'Search' tab didn't allow user to enter long values. Its limit has been increased
  • While searching something, switching to another tab erased search query from edit box
  • In some cases, popup notifier didn't show up to show all newly detected items
  • When connection speed degrated, Ziepod couldn't have handled connections very well and resulted in connection timeouts. Now it is more robust.
  • Ziepod couldn't have played NPR podcast episodes. Now it can play them. Note that if you are streaming NPR podcast episodes, it may take more time to start playing. If your connection speed is low, we recommend you download NPR podcast episodes.
  • 'Cancel All Downloads' didn't work properly when there are running downloads at the time.
  • When a guid of a post includes non-latin characters, Zipod was unable to keep track of those posts showed them multiple times.
  • When user deleted an episode which was being downloaded at the time, Ziepod still showed that episode in Trashbin as it was being downloaded.
  • Sometimes, '+' sign accidentally removed from post content which also gave rise to corrupted episode links
  • 'Open' context menu option for episodes didn't work properly
  • Bug which sometimes disabled interpretation of tag has been removed
  • Some memory leak cases have been cured.
  • Context menu option 'Add all episodes to the playlist' for 'Downloaded Episodes' Build-in bin made Ziepod crash
  • Ziepod allowed to add posts without associated enclosures to download list via 'Add all to download list' context menu option. This has been disabled.
  • When user exported subscriptions into an OPML file, Trashbin was also added to that OPML file. It was not supposed to be added.
  • When feed address of any podcast was updated, it crashed at the next Ziepod start-up.
  • 'Apply' button in properties dialog was not working as supposed to be
  • Ziepod did not allow user to set synch period lower then 30 minutes, even though that limit was 15 minutes. (Keep in mind that Ziepod obeys TTL time limit given in feed)
  • In some specific cases, moving folders or podcasts inside folder hierarchy invalidate the height of the scrollbar.
  • Restore button in Popup Notifier didn't work properly when Ziepod is in Player or Deskbar visual mode.

    Special Notes:

    * We got two feedbacks related to the case which is that Ziepod couldn't work with iTunes as supposed to be when iTunes is minimized into the system tray. Since there was no further explanation for this case, we can't say this is a generic or specific failure. We should point out, however, that we have never seen such failure in our long running tests in our testbed. If you experience anything related to that, please let us know.

    * Some of the bugs listed above may not be removed completely since they occur very rarely. If you encounter any, please let us know. Plus, there are also other tiny bugs that are not listed above.

    * We'd like to thank all Ziepod users who helped us by sending their feedbacks and suggestions. Our special thanks goes to Pieter, R.Brian, Austin, Jakanden, Robert, and Gilberto.
