'crash' when adding an atom channel

On the following page: http://blogs.msdn.com/krichie/archive/c ... 10622.aspx there is a link to an Atom feed. If you try to add this feed to Awasu it goes into a sort of infinite loop where the add channel dialog never advances to the next screen.

The Rss feed on the same page doesn't create any problems.

I actually ran into something similar the other day :-)

In this instance, the problem is being caused because Awasu does not yet understand Atom 1.0 feeds. Because the parse of the feed fails, Awasu does auto-discovery on what it received and because the feed is pointing back to itself, Awasu is finding exactly the same feed URL. It then goes back to download the feed and try again, hence getting into a loop.

Support for Atom 1.0 is planned for the next release plus a fix for the underlying problem here.
