  • When Ziepod was minimized and tried to relaunch it, Ziepod restored but icon in the system tray stayed there

  • Bug disabled ordering of listed episodes based on provided factors(such as by rates) in the Subscriptions tab
  • Ziepod didn't check the existance of folder into which it supposed to save downloaded file. Now it makes sure that folder exists, otherwise it creates it automatically
  • Sometimes Ziepod crashed when deleting any episode while it is being downloaded at the moment, or when deleting a feed while at least one of its episodes is being downloaded at the moment. We tested and no crash happened during the test, while crossing the fingers.
  • After deleting all feeds and start to subscribe to new feeds, Ziepod sometimes failed to show or update unread/unplayed items in the system. That issue has been resolved but still sometimes it may show false numbers. We will be working on that.
