What is new in this public release

* Fixed a potential application crash when feeds use "unconventional" URLs. for their podcasts (3.1.1.0) - thanks to "MrIch" for reporting that
* Updated the handling of Atom feeds so it can support content generated by Google Reader.
* Added a menu option to toggle grouping by feed in the Podcast view. This option is enabled only when showing all podcasts in the current category.
* Fixed a bug where feed groups were not sorted correctly when "Group by Feed" option is on.
* Categories are now stored in the same file as the podcasts (TrackState.xml). This fixes cases where categories and the feeds assigned to them can get out of sync.
* Added a menu option to toggle grouping by feed in the Podcast view. This option is enabled only when showing all podcasts in the current category.
* Fixed a bug where feed groups were not sorted correctly when "Group by Feed" option is on.
* Categories are now stored in the same file as the podcasts (TrackState.xml). This fixes cases where categories and the feeds assigned to them can get out of sync.
* Fixed an issue where BeyondPod would fail to update on schedule when only WiFi connection is available.
* Added "Allow use of GPRS/EDGE/3G" connections in Tools > Settings > Global Settings. This setting lets you prevent BeyondPod from using the cellular connection for feed updates and downloads. (Useful if your provider charges you per MB downloaded)
* Added "Force New Posts First" setting to Feed Properties to force sorting of posts by date in Content View. This is useful if some of your feeds add their new posts at the end of the feed (instead at the top).
* You can now configure a custom http "UserAgent" string. Please refer to the Resources page for more details on how to set that up.
* Added a setting to Feed Properties to allow for truncating the beginning of podcast names . Useful when long podcast names start with the same prefix like -, thus allowing you to see more of the episode name.
* Allow podcast deletions in Feed properties now has a "Use Global Setting" option. The global setting is in Tool > Settings > General Settings.

I do not recommend this one. It is painfully slow, does not allow offline reading, the feed content list is cluttered with unnecessary links, and you have no option to turn this off. And when you open a news item, it is opened in Internet Explorer, instead of just text with inline images as in RSS Hub or pRSSReader.

I contacted support regarding the Google reader problem --- This is a known problem. There is a patch on the CodePlex site that has a fix. Unfortunately there is no release cab that includes the patch at this moment. http://beyondpod.codeplex.com/SourceControl/PatchList.aspx

Couldn't connext to my Google Reader account, so I uninstalled it. Gave it a second chance and imported the OPML from my Google Reader account. What a wasted effort. Can only import one feed at a time, not all subscriptions at once. Uninstalled again. (And, what's will all the default NPR feeds??) BTW, uninstall is not thorough; manually delete the install directory and registry settings!

a little counter-intuitive especially compared to the straight-ahead RSS client included in most PPC WinMo devices. I erased it to go back to the stock RSS reader.

I hope the dev makes a subsidy from NPR because while I am a generous mobile software supporter both in purchases and donations, I wont donate until all the NPR crap is removed out of the box. I feel violated that my device was corrupted by even having those letters in that sequence ever grace the screen.
