WebSite-Watcher 2016 v16.0 changelog:
- Highlight keywords: Multiple keyword colors supported. Just add #colorname on the right side of a keyword definition to use an alternative color. Supported color names are: red, green, olive, lime, teal, blue, aqua, magenta, orange. You can also use the Keywords dialog to add/remove the colors.
- Performance improvement: Bookmarks that use the check technology "Internet Explorer/Browser" or Internet Explorer Macros can be checked with multiple connections. The limit of one check at a time is no longer required and the checks work similar to the Standard checking method. Only Internet Explorer Macros per top level domain are limited to one check at a time. So if you have many bookmarks which use "Internet Explorer/Browser", you might see a huge performance improvement!
- Performance improvement: HTTPS bookmarks from the same domain can be checked with simultaneous connections. So if you have many HTTPS bookmarks from the same domain (eg. facebook.com), you might see a huge performance improvement! Default value: 3 connections per domain.
- Black/Whitelist for RSS feeds to include/exclude certain articles
- New option to ignore RSS feed article bodies
- Multiple Proxies. It's possible to define multiple proxies which can be used on a per-bookmark level. So it's possible to monitor different bookmarks with different proxies. This will work with bookmarks that use the http or https protocol. [full release notes]
