Release Notes

0.2.1 is the first service release for FeedFly 0.2.

Dependencies
.NET Compact Framework 3.5
SQL Server Compact Edition 3.5

Good news on the dependencies. I'm starting to see Windows Mobile 6.1 ROMs showing up on the web that have NETCF 3.5 and SQL CE 3.5 pre-installed. Good news if you happen to be in the ROM-flashing crowd, that is.

Installation Instructions
FeedFly is designed only for Windows Mobile Professional devices (with touch screens). The cab file below needs to be copied to the device then opened to install. Please remove any prior versions before installing.

Fixes
  • Length of GUID field for feed items increased
    • I decreased the item's address and link to free up the space for the GUID. Now, all three fields have 300 characters allocated.
  • Date and time parsing
    • Major modifications were made to the date parsing. Performance improvement should actually be noticeable.
  • Unread count inaccuracies
  • Increased lock timeout in connection string
    • This is a temporary approach until I can build some sort of queue for database activity.

Enhancements
  • Times are displayed relative to the device's regional time zone settings. All dates are stored as UTC in the database now, so time zone roaming should shift the date in the item preview screen.

Notes
Since the database model has changed since the last version, this could make any home-grown data migration method more difficult. See the release notes from FeedFly 0.2 for more details about migrations.
