New features

The main new feature in this release is the HTTP API that allows Awasu to be queried and controlled.

Other key additions are:

  • An arbitrary command can now be run after a channel report is generated e.g. to do some post-processing on it. The command supports the following parameters:
    • {%REPORT-FILENAME%}
    • {%REPORT-NAME%}
    • {%REPORT-DESCRIPTION%}
    • {%CHANNEL-FILTER-NAME%}
    • {%TEMPLATE-FILENAME%}
    • {%CHANNEL-FOLDERS%} (as a comma-separated list)
    • {%WORKPAD-NAME%}
    • any other parameters that have been defined for the report
  • Uploading reports to an FTP server now allow strftime-style parameters in the URL.
    For example, the current date can now be embedded in the name of the uploaded file e.g. ftp://myserver.com/report-{%d%}.{%m%}.{%Y%}.html

 

Minor changes and bug fixes

  • Folders in My Channels can now be sorted (right-click, Folders | Sort folders).
  • Search channels now use the published/modified times of the source feed items.
  • Fixed a problem that was causing a blank page to be shown when opening a channel whose item pane is being sorted, and River of news is disabled.
  • Clicking on an item in the item pane now opens the page correctly even if items are being sorted.
