We had a big Fix-it Day here at FriendFeed, where we stop working on our bigger projects to fix the bugs and add the small features that have been lingering for too long. Here's a few of the things we fixed:
- We added support for five more services. You can now add Intense Debate, brightkite.com, Diigo, Mister Wong, and tipjoy to your feed.
- We completely revamped our feeds, so FriendFeed should work a lot better in feed readers. The titles and links are now useful, and the bodies contain permalinks to the entry so it is easier to get to the live discussion on friendfeed.com.
- Comments from people you are subscribed to are lightly highlighted so it is easier to scan for comments from people you know in active threads.
- We fixed Atom feeds for private rooms.
- We fixed a number of bugs with Google Talk support. If you had trouble adding your Google Talk account to FriendFeed, try again.
- When you send a Twitter from a FriendFeed comment, we suppress the Twitter entry from your FriendFeed home page so you don't see as many duplicates.
- When you go to Advanced Search from the search page, your search query is pre-populated into the form.
We really appreciate all the feedback we have been getting in the FriendFeed Feedback room. Keep it coming!
