Compiler:          gcc version 3.3.5 (Debian 1:3.3.5-3)

what about a link to the <enclosure> in a item (if present)
or simply display the enclosure if it's an image (with the possibility to omit this behaviuor...)

I second this, regarding the current growth of "podcasts" which rely on this technique.

SVN commit 429033 by osterfeld:

hack enclosure support into the backend. This should do for 3.5, as we don't get the new parser written and tested until freeze.

Hey Frank,

you offered me to add my wishlist. Here it comes.

- if the enclosure is a media file, add the link of the enclosure to the playlist of my favorite mediaplayer
- add a little <play> / <button> button next to the enclosure icon, maybe integrate noatun functionality
- if the enclosure is not a media file, associate it with the appropriate launcher programm, e.g. PDF with kpdf
- if I wish to download the enclosure, integrate download with kget
- keep a record which enclosures I have already downloaded (maybe have an icon with two or more status colours)
- it would be nice to mark a feed as podcast / feed with enclosure for filtering and searching
- have a special view where only enclosure with indication of their type, status, file size are shown with special actions for playlists, instant playing, downloading, e.g. if I click on a folder I can choose a not to view the list of articles but as a new tab the enclosures

Thank you!

i would be happy if akregator could replace iPodder. I read a mail from the akregator ml, that it is not intended to replace a full featured podcast client.

But e.g. iPodder does not have that much features. They are useful and IMHO would nicely fit into a general rss-feed viewer, such as akregator.

A concrete wishlist:
- possibility to add enclosed links to a download queue (destination is some directory structure)
- Tab which displays queue content and downloaded files -> possibility to add some downloaded files to some playlist or open them etc. (perhaps via a context menu)
- display link enclosures -> possibility to open them in a new tab (e.g. pdf-files) or add them directly to another program

Is this going to be supported with the next akgrekator (main) release and kde4?
