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 http://rssowl.org/CHANGELOG.txt for a complete list of changes.

Updated to Drupal 4.6 - Search Disabled

We have just updated to Drupal 4.6. Some plugins like the alternative Search Module ("Trip Search") are currently disabled, since they are not yet supporting Drupal 4.6. They will be enabled as soon as possible.

Instead of searching, please directly read the FAQ in the Help section.

About upcoming RSSOwl 1.1.1

Just wanted to give some information about upcoming RSSOwl 1.1.1. The release aims to be a bugfix release with the exception that the ToolBar above the tree will be back in place. Thanks for all the feedback on this issue.

I am planning to release 1.1.1 directly after Milestone 7 of SWT, which is dated on middle of May. Currently the SWT Team is fixing a lot of bugs. Some of these are also very important for RSSOwl.
