Sorry if i'm being annoying with my criticism but it's all in good faith. I criticize because i care.
A home icon displays in the main panel and clicking it will open the home page in your default browser
I don't like how the title is now flush with episodes, it looks like a new episode with a funny icon . The title displayed as a grouping header would look much better (mockup
Personally i think the description panel would be a better place for the homepage link (also why this particular link opens in the system browser, while other links open in the built-in one. Can't there be one master setting to choose preferred browser?).
the new down arrow button beside the "Subscriptions" header in the main panel.
Great little feature but the arrow uses a different color than other buttons in the header and looks a bit out of place, at least on some of my skins. It is also easy to confuse with the sorting arrow, maybe a funnel icon would be more intuitive.
It would be nice if the Subscriptions list had the same indentation and artwork border as the thumbnail browser.
Last but not least - new episodes counters. I was hoping i would get used to them but they're just so ugly. There already is "Controls.Counter" gui element so why not use that. It would look better and more consistent with the rest of the interface.
Still i think the improvements that were recently made to the podcast section are great and i really enjoy using it.
