What’s New:

Version 4.5


Support for Podlove Simple Chapters
See chapters in the podcast preview
Specify additional info for Spotify
Other improvements for iCloud sharing, the editor window, and publishing

The Podlove Simple Chapters extension allows chapter information to be included in the feed — the extension can be enabled or disabled in the feed’s Settings view
When enabled, chapter information will be automatically extracted when attaching an enclosure file or fetching an enclosure’s attributes
By default, Feeder will automatically extract and upload chapter images. The name will be based on the chapter title to avoid duplication, or Feeder can store the image file in a folder named after the enclosure

A chapters button will be shown above the preview if the enclosure file is local and includes chapters, or when a remote file is played
When playing an audio file, the artwork will update to reflect the current chapter
Fixed an issue where the preview may keep playing when the window is closed

Podcast feeds can now include some information specific to Spotify, such as the relevant countries and the number of most recent episodes to show
The Spotify extension will be enabled by default for all existing podcast feeds when first opening Feeder 4.5, and can be enabled or disabled in the feed’s Settings view

Menu items for podcasts and appcasts in the Editor menu will only be shown when those extensions are enabled
Fixed an issue where closing the window before fetching enclosure attributes has completed would result in a crash
Fixed an issue where enabling the “Fetch precise durations” option in Podcasts preferences would have no effect

In the General section of each feed’s Settings view, choose a feed type to filter the extensions shown — by default this is chosen depending on the extensions the feed already uses
The view mode toolbar item and search field can no longer be moved or removed on macOS 13 or later

Improved user interface for sharing feeds via iCloud on macOS 13.0 and later
Improvements handling iCloud server issues

Fixed an issue where Feeder may not be able to upload files added to Feeder on another Mac
Fixed an issue where files may be published to the wrong folder on Amazon S3 after changing the feed’s server from a protocol that included a site folder
Fixed an issue where XML stylesheets may not be included in the feed if no “media” attributed was specified
