ExtraLabs Software has unveiled Feed Editor 4.1, a RSS editor that offers users a way to create and maintain RSS feeds and podcasts, now with 20% off the regular price.

Designed for the Windows OS, this application is designed to enable users to create, edit, and publish RSS feeds and podcasts. Feed Editor combines a number of features, including a support for various RSS formats, a podcasting support, a WYSIWYG HTML editor, an XML editor, an RSS Feed preview, an FTP upload and publishing, automatic date management, and an ability to convert CSV or HTML to RSS and back. Feed Editor can create and maintain an unlimited number of RSS feeds and podcasts, allowing users to maintain and distribute multiple content streams simultaneously. To create a new RSS feed, there is a New Feed Creation wizard that will guide the user through the RSS setup process in a step by step fashion. Additional convenience comes with a built-in WYSIWIG HTML editor that allows users to edit a feed in much the same way as they would edit a word processing document. They can format the text, apply styling, and insert images and hyperlinks. Also, "Feed Editor" can generate a feed from a CSV and HTML file. Once a feed is ready, they can preview it and publish online using an FTP upload facility. Feed Editor 4.1 runs under Windows 95/98/Me/2000/NT/XP/2003/Vista and costs $39.95. Registered customers are entitled to free lifetime updates and premium technical support. Discounts for volume buyers are available. Additional information on Feed Editor 4.1, as well as its 30-day evaluation version is available.

ExtraLabs Software has also released YeahReader 2.21, a completely free RSS/RDF/Atom news aggregator and blog client. YeahReader is a free program for reading news feeds in RSS, RDF and Atom formats, and podcasts.
