Description: ------------ In all RSS readers that I've tested (iGoogle, Snarfer and FireFox) the line breaks in the description field of the latest.rss feed are not parsed and displayed as linebreaks. The standard is unclear on this subject, but I think that the RSS feeds offered by PEAR should contain HTML line breaks to aid the display of changelogs. This can for instance be done by putting entity encoded br tags (<br/>) or non-entity encoded br tags in a CDATA section.

IMHO this is a bug, I've always hated the RSS on the site but somehow always forgot to fix it

This bug has been fixed in CVS. If this was a documentation problem, the fix will appear on pear.php.net by the end of next Sunday (CET). If this was a problem with the pear.php.net website, the change should be live shortly. Otherwise, the fix will appear in the package's next release. Thank you for the report and for helping us make PEAR better.
