New MXNA Features

We just installed a new version of the Macromedia XML News Aggregator today with some cool new features. The most noticeable new feature is the ranking system. Every post made within the last 24 hours now has a ranking indicated by a series of stars which denotes its popularity among other MXNA readers. The ranking is calculated by comparing the number of clicks an entry has gotten to those of other feeds imported within the last 24 hours.

MXNA also now supports the blogger ping API, so you can ping MXNA when you make new blog entries, and MXNA will pick up your changes immediately. For more information on configuring your blogging software to ping MXNA, see the MXNA FAQ.
