Thank you for the report!
These will be working in the upcoming version. As well as much better support for feeds with non-english characters especially cyrillic.

Hi there, Kevin,
I thought I'd post this here as it seemed to the most appropriate topic but if you'd rather I opened a new topic I can do that.

I've run into an interesting feed parsing crash at the website: www.looper.com

XFeed correctly identifies two feeds as RSS 2.0, and Atom 0.3.
One can add either or both, and they will turn up in the correct category no problems but any attempt to open either will result in an instant crash.

I'm running this on an iPad Air 2, with iPadOS 15.7.3, and an iPhone SE (v1), with IOS 15.7.3.

Best regards,
Si

Hello Si!

Thank you for posting the crash!

xFeed is crashing when it trying to read the feed image for the looper.com feed.

As a workaround, if you would like to continue to use this feed until the fix can be released, you can change the feed image to a known safe one for the time being (eg: google.com)

My apologies for the inconvenience and thank you for enjoying the app!
