FeedReader II w/ sorting by Mordasius FeedReader II w/ sorting by Mordasius
This is an adaptation of the Reader skin by Kaelri rainmeter.net/forum/viewtopic.…. It requires  Rainmeter 3.1 Beta Release (r2255) or higher rainmeter.net/cms/

What sets this apart from most other RSS/Atom FeedReaders is that:

1) It sorts news items by date/time so that you only see the most recent items from sites like the BBC, the Guardian and the New York Times that don't sort their feeds. Other FeedReaders just show a mish-mash of new and old stuff that is not sorted chronologically.

2) It shows 'bullet-marks' for all items that are less than an hour old ( you can change the value for how old you want a 'new' feed to be in the [Variables] section of the skin), and

3) It trims Rainmeter Forum Feeds down to the topic titles.

If you have any problems with the skin, you'll get a quicker response if you raise them on the Rainmeter Forums rainmeter.net/forum/viewtopic.… rather than with comments here.

Updated 04 October 2012 to use the more reliable Reader script by Kaelri rainmeter.net/forum/viewtopic.…

Updated 08 February 2014 to allow custom feed titles (click on the icon in the bottom-right to edit the feed URLs and custom titles)

Really nice reader Mordasius. 
Just one question, is there any way to have a custom feed title for each feed?

Thanks

Download the latest version to get an option to add custom titles by clicking on the icon in the bottom-right :-)

Do you mean that instead of the actual feed title "BBC-News Home", the title bar would display a custom title like "News from the BBC" ?

Super Skin but the problem is that in Poland rss feeds in 98% look like this:

Is it possible to open it with the tip of xml feeds?

Done. I've updated the script to handle feeds like those you listed.
