Feed contains maximum of 20 items

description

The CodePlex RSS feeds seem to be restricted to showing only the latest 20 items.
 
For example:
 
http://servicemon.codeplex.com/project/feeds/rss?ProjectRSSFeed=codeplex%3a%2f%2frelease%2fservicemon
 
I have verified this with another project also (http://stickytweets.codeplex.com/)
 
Unfortunately, this makes it difficult for our project (ServiceMon) from using the CPNewReleaseChecker to check for new version (which is a shame, because it looks like a really useful library).
 
ServiceMon uses a continuous build server which automatically builds and uploads an alpha release every time code is committed. Once a version has been thoroughly tested we'll mark it as "Recommended" - meaning it is considered to be stable. However, there may have been more than 20 alpha releases in between stable versions. To use the Version Check library we'd have to ensure we never had more than 20 builds between Stable releases.
 
Is there a way that your library could request the full list from CodePlex?

I think I found a solution, I'll give it a shot and let you know in a couple of days.

Resolved with changeset 69459: I seperated out the logic for pulling release names and links from VersionChecker. Now there is an interface and two implementations of it. One still uses the RSS feed while the other screen scrapes the downloads page. Example code has been updated to show how to use this new approach on the home page.

I've downloaded the latest version and can confirm it's working for me. Thanks!
