Dear Emacs Devs,

While starting to use newsticker-tree as RSS reader, I found out some 
missing features that IMHO would greatly improve its usability:

- Groups cannot be sorted as the feeds (M-<up/down>)

- New feeds can be added by pressing 'a', but not removed. AFAIK there 
is no function call to do this job. It would be nice to have a 'd' 
keybinding to remove a feed (maybe with a confirmation dialog).

- It would be quite handy if the feed's displayed name would correspond 
to the label assigned, some feeds have an incredibly long name that 
doesn't fit the right window (if you keep it at a reasonably width).

- Import opml does not preserve the tree structure, new groups have to 
be created and populated.

- Focus does not follow the cursor, this is quite uncomfortable when you 
want to operate on a feed you have the cursor on, but the highlighted 
one is another.

- Feeds arrangement needs to be save continuously by pressing 's', this 
is total counter-intuitive and, even if I was aware of it, many times I 
did save and found out my feeds spread around, again.

- Even if i disabled the visualization of icons next to a feed name, 
those who were already downloaded remained there.

- Some operations are incredibly slow, marking 'old' a feed with ~100 
items takes several seconds.

These are the small usability issues I found so far. They may seems 
minor but in my experience are those small stuff may be quite relevant 
for new users.

Regards,
Nicola Manca

Hi Nicola,

thanks for compiling this list.  All these issues have been around for
quite some time.  And some of them are rather annoying.  I think it's
time for me to resume work on newsticker.  Let's see ...

Great news hearing that!

I hope at least some could be easily fixed.

Forgot to say that, but of course thanks a lot for the work done and the 
fast reply!

First issue has been fixed

> - Groups cannot be sorted as the feeds (M-<up/down>)

When a group is selected, M-<up/down> will move this group now.

When a feed is selected, M-S-<up/down> will move the enclosing group.
(This is not a new feature but apparently became broken some time ago.)

Added a command for customizing current feed, bound to 'c'.  This also
allows for deleting the feed.

Third issue has been fixed.

Added customization options

  newsticker-treeview-use-feed-name-from-url-list-in-treeview
  newsticker-treeview-use-feed-name-from-url-list-in-itemview

for displaying feed name as given in 'newsticker-url-list' instead of
name contained in feed data.

Thank for all the work you're doing, Ulf!
I'll download the latest version to test it.

best wishes,
Nicola
