Grouper version 1.5 was released today, adding new XML helper plugins for converting the XML from the Amazon.com, Shopping.com and All Posters affiliate marketing programs to RSS feeds. The new version also changes the way Grouper handles Google News and Yahoo! News, accessing the RSS feeds published by those services directly, now that they're publishing in RSS, instead of scraping the HTML search results. Finally, Feedster and Daypop support were moved from Grouper Evolution into the free version.
Another development that many are sure to enjoy is the totally revamped online documentation, which fixes what has been a bit of a sore spot for Grouper for quite a while.
Expect more affiliates XML plugins in the future, as well as one or two more options in HTML scraper plugins.
