Liferea cannot handle HTTP Content-Encoding: gzip

Bug #716688 reported by Chow Loong Jin on 2011-02-10

Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
liferea (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: liferea

Liferea cannot handle fetching HTTP content with Content-Encoding: gzip, instead choosing to complain that the feed is not readable. The attached patch enables libsoup's content decoder feature, which parses this and handles other Content-Encodings as well.
