Mary Beth Raven has posted information about moving RSS reading capabilities into the mail file in Notes (article). There is a great debate in the comment thread. My views as I have commented there are:
“Now I am of 2 minds here. To answer the specific question I prefer #2 [the image I have pasted in this post]. I’d also hope that the data can be locally cached and not required to be stored in the mail servers, however the subscriptions I would like to replicate round.
In terms of where I read feeds I choose to read feeds in FeedDemon. I HATE the existing plugin in Notes 8. Would I switch from FeedDemon, probably not. Would this be more useful for the majority of users who want lightweight RSS reading capabilities, absolutely. Is it an improvement on the plugin YES YES YES. One of the key benefits of RSS in the mail file is the ability to forward via email, without need for copying and pasting URLs.
What many people would benefit from is choice, by putting it into the template as a design element we can remove it (I assume) so that should answer the critics here.
Keep developing, I’d love to see more!!!!!”
