SimplePie is ceasing development

Sat, 26 Sep 2009 18:48:59 +0000

A couple of years ago I co-founded my first company and that has ended up taking a large portion of my time. As part of that, I've also released a new open-source project called CloudFusion (formerly Tarzan) that is beginning to take the Amazon Web Services and Cloud Computing world by storm. Geoffrey has spent a lot of time in school, building tools to help the HTML 5 community, and now has a gig working for Opera. There quite simply isn't much time for SimplePie anymore ? for either of us.

Deprecating SimplePie Live!

Sat, 21 Feb 2009 02:14:39 +0000

Although SimplePie Live! was a cool concept, and something that I would have liked to see be successful, I simply haven’t had the time to put into it for nearly a year and a half now. One of these days I’d like to relaunch it when I have more time and resources to put into […]

SimplePie 1.1.3 is now available!

Sat, 20 Dec 2008 17:13:13 +0000

SimplePie 1.1.3 is now available (like 1.1.2, “core” plugin will be updated soon). This is a bugfix-only release that resolves the one major issue that 1.1.2 created (gzip decoding errors while using fsockopen()), and fully resolves the other major issue that 1.1.2 didn’t fully address (a workaround of a libxml2 bug).
