in the new version you introduced fiters with regular expresssions.
i wanted to use this feature to make my filters usable fpr several feeds.
But whenever I try to run the filter QuiteRSS crashed throwing the exception message

"The runtime was asked to stop the application in an unusual way. Contact the application administrator."

That doesn't seem to work properly.

Here is the regex i use

Please have a look!

Kind regards,

Have this filter created for a specific feed?

The main idea from my side to use regex here was to crreate a generic filter that can be used for several feeds.
But for testing purpose I applied it only to one feed first. But there are many other filter settings (about 40 - 50) in this filter.without regex.
Those I wanted to replace with regex later.
After I replaced only one by the regex QuiteRSS crashed. I tried it several time.
It seems to be a performance problem. The regex I use is quite perfomance consuming.
But if I want to filter it with regex I have to use this. It's tthe normal regex for this.
So using regex in filters seems to have restrictions here.

I started testing today. Sorry for the delayed feedback but I was quite busy.

The first tests look fine. I will come back to you after further testing.




the filtering by regular expression works fine.
I tested it usng


in different scenarios.
I built the following regex strings

1. regex = regex1
2. regex = regex1.*regex2

That should cover the most.
Both scenarios worked fine.

I tested it also acroos different feeds. Everything seems to work perfect.
I didn't get any crash.

So from my perspective the regex filtering seems to work fine
Thanks for fixing it.

Looking forward to using it after the next release.

Kind regards,
