The developers over at Excelsior just posted the results of their new Excelsior JET 6.5 beta 2. With Excelsior JET it is possible to compile a Java application to native code.
RSSOwl was chosen to be one of the demo RCP applications that are compiled natively. You can read more about it here. They also offer a download, but keep in mind that we have not yet fully tested the native version of RSSOwl. Also, it appears that the installation is limited in time until 6.5 final is released.
Thanks to Excelsior for choosing RSSOwl as application to show the capabilities of JET!
