The main additions are enhancements to two of Awasu's most important features.
- Workpads: custom fields can now be defined for each workpad (e.g. Priority, Assigned to, Source) and values set for each by workpad items. These values will then be included in any reports generated from that workpad.
- Awasu API: a new entry point has been added that allows individual feed items to be retrieved from Awasu's database. And since it works off reports, you also get the extra functionality that they offer e.g. emailing or FTP'ing them off somewhere.
There is also a simple interface for managing the download queue for enclosures. They say necessity is the mother of all invention and I put this feature in since I got stung by a few feeds that I had subscribed to that turned out to have gigabytes of enclosures embedded in them
This beta cycle will be the last before the next general release - not long to go! 🙂
