XML News from Monday, November 13, 2006

As part of my continuing e-mail Inbox purging, I have now collected and posted all the user-submitted errata for Effective XML. overall, there's nothing too major here; just lots of little annoying syntax errors. Hopefully I'll get a chance to fix these in a future printing sometime.

Steve Palmer has posted a new beta ( of Vienna 2.1, an open source RSS/Atom client for Mac OS X. Vienna is the first reader I've found acceptable for daily use; not great but good enough. (Of course my standards for "good enough" are pretty high.) 2.1 focuses on improving the user interface with a unified layout that lets you scroll through several articles, article filtering (e.g. read all articles since the last refresh), manual folder reordering, a new get info window, and an improved condensed layout.
