Upcoming Jyte features - March 15, 2004—
We're aiming to release several major feature upgrades near the end of this week, including among other things:
- the ability to discern between blog content (personal syndication) and major news content (public syndication) when creating feeds;
- an interface for creating "default" jyte.exe files, which would include an individual's favorite feeds and searches and could be hosted on your own web site - when your friends or clients download Jyte, they will automatically have a few searches already created; and
- enhanced functionality for recommending articles and "publishing" your recommendations to your friends (this goes way beyond the "email this" link).
These features are all really exciting and will be a real distinguishing feature between Jyte and your typical RSS reader. Plus, later this week, I'll be discussing why Jyte is right from the techy standpoint. It has a Python backbone, which was a careful choice; I'll be writing more about why that's so great.
