Feedly announced a bunch of fixes it has made to various features, and that it is working on bringing the mini toolbar back. The feature which went missing weeks ago (around the time Google Reader finally went down, actually), was one of the best parts about Feedly, as it let you easily add feeds from whatever site you happened to be on, as well as save content for later reading (regardless of whether you are subscribed), and share content via social networks.

The company says it is working on redesigning the feature into "something more capable and less intrusive," and that it will be part of the coming version 17, which is scheduled for release in early fall.

The Android widget, the company says, is also being worked on.

"We are re-implementing the android widget on top of the feedly cloud," Feedly co-founder and CEO Edwin Khodabakchian said in a blog post. "It requires a couple of weeks of work. Not sure if we will be able to schedule it for v17 or if it will have to wait for v18."

In the meantime, Feedly has added hardware to make polling and accessing Feedly faster, added a preference knob to enable a more compact list view, fixed "mark as read" sync across devices, changed its font, added better spacebar and shift+spacebar navigation support, fixed syncing of category orders between cloud and mobile, and more.

You can see the full list of fixes in the blog post here.
