Are you furiously working on your Podcast so that you can get it on the air (like the PowerPage is?) Frustrated debugging errors in your RSS 2.0 feed? Well, suffer no more, Feeder is here…
Reinvented Software’s Feeder (US$29.95) is an application for creating, editing and publishing RSS feeds. With Feeder you don’t need to understand RSS to create feeds and publish them to the Web.
In case you’re not in the loop, RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is a technology for distributing news on the Web. Many news sites, organizations and weblogs publish RSS feeds to keep people informed of the latest news, product updates and more. The PowerPage’s RSS 2.0 feed is here:

What’s cool about Feeder is that they plan to fully support the iTunes-specific extensions to RSS introduced with iTunes 4.9 allowing you to easily publish your feeds on the iTunes Music Store.

iTunes 4.9 was released on 28th June 2005 to include podcasts as part of iTunes and the iTunes Music Store. On the same day Apple released details of iTunes-specific extensions to RSS.
Feeder 1.1 does not support the creation of these attributes, but Feeder 1.2 will. Feeder 1.2 will be released as soon as this new functionality is ready and will be a free upgrade for registered Feeder users – expect to see this in August 2005.
