A couple of small bugs were found in the WYSIWYG HTML Description editor, during additional in-house testing.

1. Line breaks (mostly near the bottom of the description text) were not being converted to HTML.

2. Links, under some very specific conditions, were not behaving correctly.

Because the beta release has not yet been publicly announced, we have decided to upload a new version. If you have downloaded before the date/time of this post, please check your program file version (feedforall.exe). The new version is 0.0.1.3.

Sorry for any inconvenience.

A new build of FeedForAll Beta 1 has been uploaded to our server. The current build version is now 0.0.1.4. Several minor issues have be resolved, and a few small features have been added.

We are going to try to resolve issues that are found as quickly as possible, and make new builds available. We feel this is a better approach than waiting for a period of time to pass, and then posting an update with several updates within it.

If you downloaded your copy of FeedForAll before the date/time of this post, or have a program version (feedforall.exe) lower than 0.0.1.4, then please download and install the update.

We have received lots of excellent feedback from our testers and appreciate all of it. Please keep it coming!

- Reworked how pasting formatted text to fields is handled
Build 0.0.1.3
