May the owl be with you,

Eclipse 3.1 has been released has released version 3.1 of Eclipse, for me the best integrated development environment for Java. Congratulations! RSSOwl has evolved a lot with the ongoing development on SWT.

RSSOwl was entirely developed using Eclipse. A list of new features is available here. Thanks for adding me to the Acknowledgments.

RSSOwl 1.1.2 is out

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.

Please see the Changelog at for a complete list of changes.
