The first alpha release for Feeds 8.x-3.x is finally here!
This release is usable for basic use cases. Importing from CSV, RSS feeds, OPML and Sitemap XML is possible. Supported target entity types are node, user and taxonomy term.
Recent additions are:
An UI for the CSV parser
Unpublish/delete entities not included in feed
This being an alpha release means that not all features from the D7 version of Feeds have been ported yet. You may also run into some bugs.
The most notable missing features are:
- An UI for edit/remove custom sources:
- Drush commands
- Feeds import preview
- An option to only update existing items (not creating new items)
- Targets for several field types: language, media field, path alias, user password, user roles
There are some issues which could lead to errors that are less easy to recover from. These are:
To avoid these, do not use the “Expire” feature, do not delete fields that are used in mapping and do not import empty values for file targets.
