It's been a while since I used NewsGator and FeedDemon. I tried to log on last week and today and both seem broken.

NewsGator no longer has a login -- it has been replaced by DataWire on the www.newsgator.com home page and my login no longer works. FeedDemon is completely broken -- it is no longer sucking in RSS feeds.

What happened? And what do I do now? Do I need to get a completely new RSS feeder? Or is there something else that NewsGator is doing that I'm not aware of?

Newsgator no longer offers feed synchronization. FeedDemon still works except for feeds that you had sync'd via Newsgator. The latest version of FeedDemon supports sync via Google Reader.

Nick's blog has lots of information on the v3 changes.

Wow. I didn't even know v3 exited. When I hit Help/Check New Version in v2.7 it says that no new version is available! –  user1413 Oct 13 '09 at 11:07
    
Did this and everything worked perfectly. Even better, my Google Reader now automagically has all of my FeedDemon feeds. –  user1413 Oct 13 '09 at 13:29

Traditional news readers aren't doing that great; it's not just NewsGator and FeedDemon. Try using Google Reader, it's free and works anywhere. To get offline support, you can use Google Gears to save your Google Reader feeds offline.

Note that exporting feeds from FeedDemon and importing them into Google Reader should be easy using OPML export/import. –  user1413 Oct 13 '09 at 11:09
