Web 17.7 PRODUCTION

This is an infrastructure update. We replaced the old Google OAuth SDK with the new Google Authentication SDK.

Google has made a lot of improvements to its sign in module - including support for All Google account types [1].

This new feature allows us to upgrade
(a)... without forcing feedly users to have a google+ account,
(b)... without asking feedly users to create a google+ profile
(c)... in corporate environments where Google+ might be banned. 

The next step for us in the authentication track is to allow feedly username and password, facebook-based authentication and twitter-based authentication, Google+ based authentication and Wordpress-based authentication. Those 4 improvements are planned for 2014.

This new Google Authentication module is new so please let us know if you log out and have problems logging back in.

+1 on above.
 
Ah nice. This would have saved you so much trouble few weeks ago. 
 
Hehe. But you are forcing beta users to have a Google+ account to provide feedback :D 

I personally am waiting for the Google+ specific features that you talked about back then. 
 
+Sushubh Mittal Once this new infrastructure is completely deployed, we will be able to use incremental auth to selectively offer (opt-in) cross device authentication, enhanced sharing and over the air android install to users who want to benefit from these.
 
The incremental auth is indeed very interesting and one many others will implement one day too.
 
I'm looking forward to a LOT of what feedly is planning.  However, I'm wondering about apps that use the current feedly API.  Will these apps break if you roll this out to the production channel? #nervous

The new auth system on the beta site is working fine for me. :)
 
+Kevin Downs Good questions. Apps are safe: they use feedly tokens and are shielded from what login we use to product those feedly tokens.
 
+Edwin Khodabakchian Okay, so it looks like apps use the Oath 2.0 authentication module which is not going to be impacted by the 17.7 auth change - right?
 
+Kevin Downs Right. The apps will continue to use the feedly OAuth 2.0 authentication and receive a feedly token. Behind the scene, feedly will delegate to the right Google Sign-in and do the right thing and return the app a feedly token.
 
+Ryan R I still have to manually login and out of feedly.  When you log out of Google, are you automatically logged out of Feedly?
 
I know you only really care for people having problems logging out and back in, but it was VERY fast and seamless for me when I just tried it. Very well implemented :)
 
In regard to most sites that use Sign In With Google+, I'm automatically logged in to the site when I'm logged in to Google.  In addition, I'm automatically logged out of the site when I'm logged out of Google.

I'm not seeing this yet with Feedly.  Currently, I still have to click on the tiny login and logout links at Feedly.

Am I lazy?  You bet.  The login at Feedly does work smooth, but I'd like to see it go that last extra step to be as convenient as other sites.
 
I opened feedly.com/beta from an incognito tab in Chrome and was able to log in with 2-step authentication without issue.
 
I logged out and logged back in without a problem.

Same here. 
 
No problems with the login to 17.7 here. Firefox with Google+ account.
