Issues with GReader sync

Posted on 14. Jan, 2010 by in Blog

The interface to GReader had some minor changes the last days, so some of you may encounter problems with the sync from Gruml to Google Reader (e.g. not able to change unread state, mark items, add or manage feeds).
We’re working on this problem and a fix will be available really soon.
Sorry for the inconveniences!

Edit: Please update to Gruml 0.9.15 which fixes these issues!
