with sage it works -
but i would not say that other rss readers are nonconformant
it looks like Nightly Builds feed is only working with sage ...
have you tried with others ?
why do others not have any problems with almost all other feeds available in the internet ?
( just ideas )

sage is a little bit too small for my needs, it can't autoreload feeds,
doesn't save read/unread items settings over sessions ... [edit] obviously not true  8) [/edit]
i don't like to use it

i'm not so familiar with rss tags - for what is this

<guid isPermaLink="true"> ...link.... </guid>

good ?

as far as i know every rss reader understands a plain

<link> ...link.... </link>

I adjusted for yesterday's build, could you give it a try.

I only did the guid, since at Firefox forum they also do it like this, and those guys are standards adepts, so I trusted them ;-)

yes it works,

but to KISS you can remove these <guid isPermaLink="true"> ...link.... </guid>
and just use <link> ...link.... </link> instead.

i've tested with all available rss readers which i've here available (IE, Maxthon and Firefox)
with the following rss xml file.

Code: [Select]
<rss version="2.0">

From the RSS 2.0 specification

Quote
A frequently asked question about <guid>s is how do they compare to <link>s. Aren't they the same thing? Yes, in some content systems, and no in others. In some systems, <link> is a permalink to a weblog item. However, in other systems, each <item> is a synopsis of a longer article, <link> points to the article, and <guid> is the permalink to the weblog entry. In all cases, it's recommended that you provide the guid, and if possible make it a permalink. This enables aggregators to not repeat items, even if there have been editing changes.

seems to be written by the Sage dev's ;-) - it's the only rss reader i have available where this works !

[append]
possibly it has to do with the fact, that the other rss feeds which i use
are using this

<rss version="0.92">
...
</rss>


interesting news anyways ...

I'd love it if the list of changes were included in the feed posts.  I subscribe to the Firefox nightly builds and the changelog there is quite useful for deciding whether to get it or not.  It saves that extra five seconds of going to the forum post =P
Cheers,
