Publisher Description

RSSOwl is a free RSS / RDF / Atom Newsreader written in Java using SWT as graphic library.

RSS ("Really Simple Syndication" or "Rich Site Summary") is a document specification
that gives users the power to collect and organize Web-based news and information in
a more efficient manner. Applications that collect data from RSS-compliant sites are
called RSS readers or "aggregators". RSSOwl is such an application. It 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.

Why "Owl"? The owl is a traditional symbol of wisdom, and a quiet, efficient hunter. You'll find
RSSOwl's "big eyes" a big help when scanning the Web's vast array of RSS resources.

version 1.1.2

posted on 2005-06-12

We are happy to announce the second bugfix-release for the 1.1 branch. With an update to the latest SWT
version, two of the most annoying Browser bugs on windows got fixed. Say goodbye to the dialog that kept
popping up, in case the visited webpage contained erroneous JavaScript. The other bugfix helps for Blogs
that show images in their Newsitems. In some cases, RSSOwl showed just a blank, empty page when clicking
on one of these.

On the feature side, RSSOwl 1.1.2 is bringing two new update intervals: 30 Minutes and 6 Hours.
In addition it is now possible to hide the small Toolbar that is placed in the Favorites Tree by accessing
its context-menu and unchecking the "Toolbar" entry.

See the Changelog at for a complete list of changes.

May the Owl be with you,

version 2
