Suggest Newsfeeds for RSSOwl 1.1

As some may know, RSSOwl's list of sample newsfeeds is very long, contains lot's of categories...and is kind of old ;)

For upcoming RSSOwl 1.1. I would like to give the list of samples a facelift.

If you are knowing of cool newsfeeds that should be added to the list of samples, please let me know (either post a comment or send a mail).

Thanks,
Ben

Subscription Feature - Removed in RSSOwl 1.1?

I am playing with the idea of removing the entire subscription feature from RSSOwl beginning with the next version 1.1.

For a new user its hard to understand what the difference between a favorite and a subscription is.

Subscriptions are usefull when people want to share the same newsfeeds. The newsfeeds are then stored inside a subscription (xml file) that is put on a server. Each time RSSOwl starts, the collection of newsfeeds is synchronized.

I reckon not much users of RSSOwl make use of subscriptions. I am hardly getting any feedback on this feature.

Maybe someone got a better solution that allows to keep the Subscription feature, but without confusing the user?

Newsfeed Location

Hi there,
in case you wonder where our newsfeed might be:

We're looking forward to integrate link buttons so you don't have to rely on your browser checking for newsfeeds automatically.
