Changes in version 4.1ΒΆ

Universal Feed Parser 4.1 was released on January 11, 2006.

  • Support for the Universal Encoding Detector to autodetect character encoding of feeds that declare their encoding incorrectly or don’t declare it at all. See Character Encoding Detection for details of when this gets called.
  • Universal Feed Parser no longer sets a default socket timeout (SourceForge bug 1392140). If you were relying on this feature, you will need to call socket.setdefaulttimeout(TIMEOUT_IN_SECONDS) yourself.
