1) The RSS does not validate without a guid field. No big thing. I have never really figured out what the difference is between link and guid in practical terms.

2) A red flag needs to evaluate the <link> field. Before a feed is published, is there no way to fore-warn a user before uploading that link fields were either
a) not completed; or
b) two or more <link>s are identical?
It would save a newbie a lot of stress and coder's dyslexia.

I have learned from using Thunderbird that if a link field is empty or two or more fields have the same URL that TB will not display these entries and those that come after. Therefore a whole feed could fail to publish and only one entry appear.

In many cases the Link field won't be unique. That is why the GUID field exists.

I don't think at this time we will be making any changes to FeedForAll, just because Thunderbird has a problem with it's behavior with RSS feeds. You might consider providing Thunderbird with a bug report to get it fixed.

What about iTunes support for the Beta release?
Probably an old question,

The beta release fully supports the iTunes namespace extension :)
