Some faulty feeds and subscription lists are now handled more gracefully (invalid URLs in such documents are now simply ignored instead of causing the whole document to be skipped).

A bug in update checking has been fixed.
Release Notes: This release fixes an RSS parsing bug for feeds that use the Yahoo! Media RSS module.
Release Notes: A --content option that specifies the types of content (MP3, audio, video, etc.) that are to be downloaded was added. All content is downloaded by default, rather than only MP3 as in previous versions. Strategies for downloading content in chronological order (chron_one, chron, chron_all) were added. An --order option that determines feed order was implemented along with a --checkforupdate option for informing the user when a new version is available, an --options option for reading options from a file, and an --arguments option for reading arguments from a file.
Release Notes: A status code and content type check is now performed when downloading a media file using HTTP. Upgrading is recommended.
