RSSOwl 1.2.4

Posted on Tuesday, November 27 2007 @ 20:39:49 CET by

Applications that collect data from RSS-compliant sites are called RSS readers or "aggregators." RSSOwl is such an application. RSSOwl lets you gather, organize, update, and store information from any compliant source in a convenient, easy to use interface, save selected information in various formats for offline viewing and sharing, and much more. It's easy to configure, available in many many languages and the best of all: It's platform-independent.

New features:
  • Windows Vista: Thanks to the latest SWT 3.3, RSSOwl is now fully supporting Vistas look and feel.

  • Windows: In order to scroll in a scrollable element (e.g. the headlines table or newstext browser) you no longer have to select the element first. Just move the mouse over the element and begin scrolling.
  • Mac: All System-Tray and notification features are now supported (see the "System Tray" preferences page).
  • Linux: Printing is now supported (requires GTK+ 2.10 or newer)
  • Linux and Solaris: You can now pass an argument to the run.sh to have it handled by RSSOwl (e.g. let firefox run rssowl to subscribe to a feed).
