After a few months of work, newsbeuter 2.3 has finally been released. It’s mostly a bugfix release, addressing a number of issues that came up in the last few months since the 2.2 release, especially the problem that newsbeuter hangs and consumes 100 % CPU when confronted with certain characters in combination with certain locales. It also addresses a recent change in Google Reader’s authentication scheme. As usual, you can download the latest newsbeuter release from this location.
In addition, I would also like to point out that you can show your love towards newsbeuter by “flattring” it on flattr.com, a new social micropayment platform that lets you show love for the things that you like. I certainly appreciate it, even though I don’t expect to get rich through it.
