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?
