Comment: Migrated to Confluence 4.0


  • More strict logic is implemented for controlling the resources deletion. Given the News articles as the example:

    What this generally means is that there will be no possibility fo a user to accidentally delete articles permanently - either with the help of a rule or via keyboard.
  • Highly optimized "Replies to my posts" condition.
  • News articles encoding issues
  • "Watch Conversation" - possibility to create a special formatting for a subthread, specifying its head:

  • "Stop updating thread" - possibility to delete all subsequent news articles which belong to the specified (sub)thread:

  • In order to support more servers with custom behaviour, messages posted by Omea contain the "Date" header.
  • Fixed issue not allowing to post to the server.
  • Incorrect parsing of URLs in emails and news articles.

    RSS Plugin

  • Create Feed Folder on the top level not only in the Subscription Manager (nightmare!!!)
  • Completely redesigned export of feed subscriptions.
  • Option "Auto update feed comments" is moved from popup menu to a "Properties" dialog for a feed.
  • Fixed bug with illegal importing of OPML files into Omea.
  • "Move a feed to Feed Folder" menu item for "keyboarders":

  • Option to show feed's FavIcon as the primary icon of the feed post, both in resource list and in newspaper:


  • Unified progress display for feeds downloading in the status bar.
  • In Newspaper view we added an icon for an Enclosure status.
  • Ability to pause the updating of the RSS Feed for an arbitrary period of time:

    Feed title becomes a little bit "grayed" and a "PAUSE" icon indicates its status:

  • In 2.0 there was only one column for showing the origin of the feed - "Author, Weblog". Now ordinary columns "From" and "Weblog" are additionally added.
  • New option for a feed "Accept equal posts". We use several techniques for dealing with posts identical to previously posted in the case of e.g. the change of rss engine. This prevented normal working of different domestic rss generating engine for which it is normal to issue posts with equal subjects and bodies. This may be controlled here:

    RSS Search Engines

  • Added the following search engines:
  • * MSN Search
  • * BlogPulse
  • * Google Blog Search
  • * IceRocket
  • Subscribe to any number of search feeds, not only one by one:



  • Task Edit form was redesigned to structurize the task-related information:

    Single form was split into several tabs
  • Date controls were redesigned so that they are usable both from keyboard, mouse and stick (for tablets).
  • Added logic between different controls.
  • When creating a task from a resource the current selected text is automatically put into the task's description.


  • Save into file and send by mail multiselected IM conversations.


  • Opening a link in a new Web browser window is now performed asynchronously, so that Omea won't hang if the Web browser or some other application is not responding at the moment.
  • Drag'n'Drop reordering of resource trees: it's now possible to change the order of items in the lists and trees with the mouse, as well as reset the user order back to lexicographical sorting:

    Open Issues

  • Features and bug fixes covered in this section are to be finished before 2.1 release:
  • Task recurrence pattern. Currently most of the controls are in-place already, we need to complete the processing part.
  • Show view only in the predefined workspace(s). Currently user can specify that in the "Edit View" dialog directly, but there is some logic behind to put it into "Manage Workspaces" dialog:
    Image Removed
  • Configure set of prefixes (like "RE" or "FW") to be ignored when sorting by subject.
  • Reordering in the V&C pane
  • Crashes in text index. We still have problems in reproducing this.
  • Incorrect parsing of URLs in emails and news articles.
  • Merging contacts
  • Tasks duplication when synchronizing with Outlook
  • Exceptions in Replies to news articles. Most of these exceptions are related to .Net 2.0 and the lack of testing under it.
  • Skipping RSS posts with equal description string
  • News articles encoding issues
  • Performance, performance, performance...
  • Bug fixes. Please do not warry if you did not find your most upleasant bug in the list above. There is always a chance that we will fix it.
