I'm having problems with Sharpreader not timing out connections to certain sites. Somehow I end up with approximately 10 sites that are waiting and waiting and waiting... and as soon as I hit my max number of threads, updates no longer work.

Fabrice: hmm strange... SharpReader checks if the Form's ActiveControl is either the TreeView or the ListView when catching a space-keypress. It seems like .net is keeping the ActiveControl set to the ListView if you just click on the internal browser, while clicking the address-textbox at the top does update it (as does TAB-ing to the browser)

Maybe I should try checking TreeView.Focused & ListView.Focused instead... I'll give that another try tonight.

This morning Luke Hutteman provides another point release of SharpReader. He's fixed a couple of bugs!...

Since I moved to a new machine, SharpReader always opens up in very large size (> 2 screens wide & 1.5 screens deep). This makes it pain to resize.

It would be great if SharpReader saved its size and current location and divider settings on exit.

Thanks for making a fun tool.

Luke, just started using SR: very nice. 2 feature suggestions:

1. Show the url of the current page, not the feed. This tells what site you're visiting, as well as allows you to cut and paste the url.

2. Hitting space should wraparound.

Great work!

Looks like somewhere along the way Sharpreader got good. I tried a few of the previous versions and found them to be a bit unstable, but this one seems to work. YAY! It, of course, still has a few minor...

I'm having a problem importing feeds. Whenever I import an OPML file (either mine or one I've exported from SR) I get "Imported from $foo (0/0)" which is an empty folder.
