Tickershock 1.0.2

Tickershock is an RSS and Atom news ticker. Featuring animated crawl and billboard displays, Tickershock is a departure from typical RSS applications that emulate web browser or email reader environments. Focusing on the "push" nature of the technology, Tickershock aims to be a passive experience only until the user decides a headline is worth exploring: a double-click on a news headline brings up a "News Inspector" from which one can explore a story in greater depth.

Optimized for performance, Tickershock requires a fraction of the CPU time used by more conventional stock and news tickers

- added support for feed:// protocol
- added support for local (disk-based) RSS and Atom feeds
- "Open Browser" now opens "Front Page" in default browser
- fixed bug where adding a Channel resulted in duplicate Channel menu entries
