Wales' Reinvented Software has introduced Feeder 1.5, the latest version of the RSS editor for creating news feeds and podcasts..

The latest version sports a new Leopard interface and supports thumbnails for video podcasts with the Media RSS extension. RSS providers also benefit from support for password-less SFTP, and better tagging of MP4 video files, item editing and Sparkle appcasts.

Feeder offers templates, previews, HTML editing and auto-completion for RSS feed creation. It also offers full support for iTunes RSS podcasting extensions, drag-&-drop episode creation, an iTunes Store preview and the ability to tag all popular podcast media files. Feeder can publish feeds and associated files using FTP, SFTP, .Mac and file export.

This version also improves performance when tagging MP4 format files, including those used for iPod, iPhone and Apple TV and has the ability to redirect uploaded enclosure files through sites such as blubrry.com for tracking podcast statistics.

Feeder requires Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger or later. A 15-day trial version is available for download. Feeder 1.5 costs $29.95.
