** Please note, I do recommend backing up your subscriptions before doing this update, via: Subscriptions -> Export, just incase **
2.0.2/2.0.3 contains a huge update to the inner workings of the application, although not alot of visual changes or features have been added, a huge amount of effort has gone into creating a superior, more robust feed parsing engine as-well as performance.
Added support for authenticated feeds ( HTTP auth ) - huzzah!
Added preference to be able to centre the selected item in the article list
Added preference to be able to select only subscriptions and not groups when using the next unread shortcuts
Added preference to limit the internal cache size
Added preference against subscriptions to allow force enabling of readability
Added ability to save an image directly to downloads
Added preference to enable RTL per subscription
Added preference to disable mark as read on selection
This version contains a new way of keeping track of read and unread items, due to this change, there may be overlapping of items you may have read before being marked as unread ( these would generally be old items that were discarded ). What this will do, is cure issues with subscriptions that have no dates for items and subscriptions that update there feeds in a non chronological order.

Improvements to search Performance increases

Along with its beautiful interface ( which looks stunning on a Retina Display ), Caffeinated also is feature rich, heres a few of what it has to offer:
- Authenticated feeds support
- Manual subscription management, you can import / export, subscribe, unsubscribe and manually reorder your subscriptions
- Share articles to multiple services, these include:
- Twitter ( or on 10.8 you can choose to use the Sharing Service )
- Google Plus
- Read It Later
- Safari Reading List
- Messages ( 10.8 only via Sharing Service )
- Email ( via your email client )
Also great features such as:
- Create custom shortcuts for various actions
- View the original article within the application

Caffeinated 2.0 has also been tweaked and change under the hood to provide incredible responsiveness whilst casually using the application or whilst storing thousands of articles.
