Lately, I have been working on improving some of my older projects. Today, I am happy to announce that I have finally gotten around to updating Syndicate, my RSS feed reader for Windows! Here's what's new.
Improved UI: By far the most noticeable change in this update is the improved user interface. I really wanted to make the UI a bit more interesting and colorful, so I introduced the signature Syndicate light blue (from the early days of Syndicate) into things like the menu bar. I made sure not to overdo the blue, and I think the updated UI turned out really well because of that!
New fonts: You now can choose your font! Available fonts include Arial, Microsoft Sans Serif, Verdana, and of course, Comic Sans MS.
Zoom: You can zoom in and out on the feed text to reduce eye strain.
New icon: Syndicate now has a new icon that changes depending on whether or not you have dark mode enabled.
Bug fixes and other small improvements: I have made some small improvements, fixed some bugs, and have removed some pointless features.
