There's a new release of the UI of FeedLand that covers a big new feature in the product -- reading lists, a list you can subscribe to.#
There's a new sub-menu of the Tools menu, where you can look at a list of your reading lists (right now there are none), or other people's reading lists (my list has a few on it), and see a list of FeedCorps reading lists, a service we're starting that "primes the pump of the bootstrap" -- we'll try to provide some interesting lists for people to subscribe to, to get the idea out there. #
You can also enter the URL of an OPML file and have FeedLand subscribe to it. #
This is a new and internally complex feature, so you should expect there will be slowness in strange places, it may take a while before all the feeds in a list are functioning properly. But it does appear to be usable. So it's time to go forward with it.#
I'm not really looking for testing right now, that'll come a little later. I just felt that with this feature more or less fully developed in plain sight in the UI, I should mention it, and if you're adventurous, and willing to really focus on it, then by all means give it a try. #

You know those obnoxious sites that pop up dialogs when they think you're about to leave, asking you to subscribe to their email newsletter? Well that won't do for Scripting News readers who are a discerning lot, very loyal, but that wouldn't last long if I did rude stuff like that. So here I am at the bottom of the page quietly encouraging you to sign up for the nightly email. It's got everything from the previous day on Scripting, plus the contents of the linkblog and who knows what else we'll get in there. People really love it. I wish I had done it sooner. And every email has an unsub link so if you want to get out, you can, easily -- no questions asked, and no follow-ups. Go ahead and do it, you won't be sorry! :-)
