1.3.0.36 Alpha and AdsBlocker HowTo

We decided to post another iteration of the Rss Bandit Alpha (v1.3.0.36): read about the details at Dare's blog and download it here.

It is the first version that is AddIn - enabled and you can find and use the first AddIn available here: AdsBlocker. So how to use it?

  1. Download and unzip to a folder you like (e.g. "AddIns" sub-folder within your Bandit installation path).
  2. Start Bandit and open the AddIns dialog via Tools|AddIns... menu.
  3. Press the "Add..." button and select the AdsBlocker.AddIn.dll
  4. Press "Close"
  5. Optional: add entries/modify the ads.blacklist.txt file (regular expressions) to configure your blocked content (urls)
  6. Optional: create a white list "ads.whitelist.txt" in the same location if your blacklist gets large and you want to re-enable some blocked content.

    I've run the latest 1.3.0.36 build and it's really good. I just have one question: is the feed-autodiscovery/-parser function going to use an empty user-agent in the release version as well?

    I just wanted suggest that a FileSystemWatcher be added to the black/white list files so that it can auto-refresh if the file is updated.

    Is there an update to AdsBlocker plugin? It doesn't seem to work with Jubilee beta. Or am I doing something wrong?
