We are now testing some new software for displaying and managing the front page news, and this should also improve the RSS news feed.

Not everybody uses RSS, so I'm hoping to get some feedback from those who do. Please check and let us know if there are problems.

I use the RSS news feed almost every day.
In Firefox, under the RSS news, the headlines are only called "Pirates@Home news", instead of the date of the headline. I liked it better before, it was easier to see if something new had happened.

Previously there was not "title" set. I added this default for the currently existing news items, but will add better titles both for new items and for old ones once I get to the interactive editing feature.

Let me know when something breaks! ;-)

i have only one item listed now (11am eastern) and that one has no title.

I was working on the news this morning and this was an intermediate step.

The dates in the RSS news feed should now be in RFC-822 format. Can you or anybody else verify it is now okay?
