Yes it does. Once you’ve signed up and ‘burned’ your feed. You will need to activate the Stats and (Site) FeedFlare functionality for your feed.
- Does this work with FeedBurner Pro Stats?
Yes, it does.
- Will it display FeedFlare on my homepage or other lists of blog posts?
- Does it insert FeedFlare on my Pages?
No. It only operates on blog posts. Pages don’t appear in Feeds and as such are outside of FeedBurner’s domain.
- Does it work with WordPress MU?
- Does it support Adsense enabled feeds or the My Brand Service?
Version 0.17 fixes an issues with My Brand support, and lets you supply your MyBrand URL, which is probably different than your blog url (which v0.15 and v0.16 assumed).

The project is now hosted on github.com. Just fork the project and send me a pull request.
