More languages, native Mac Disk Image, new Linux Repositories

We added Italian and Polish versions of RSSOwl and there is still more languages to come soon. If you are missing your spoken language in RSSOwl, you can help out in translating.

Mac users will be happy to hear that RSSOwl for Mac is now provided as disk image. In addition to this new deployment format, the application is now a single executable application bundle that can easily be moved to the applications folder and started from there.

Finally I would like to point out our new repositories for Ubuntu provided by getdeb.net. More details are available from our page. Note that packages.rssowl.org is no longer actively maintained.

Help translate RSSOwl into your language

Since RSSOwl 2.1 has been released, more and more people ask for a translated version of RSSOwl. Currently, English is the only language supported and we would like to change that. We are now asking our fellow users to help translate RSSOwl into their language.

Upon submission of your completed translation you will get an exclusive free RSSOwl T-Shirt from ooshirts.com.

FAQ updated on Google Reader Article Synchronization

Based on a lot of feedback we got from users testing the new Google Reader article synchronization, the FAQ is now updated with the top questions and answers.

One more thing: Google Reader Synchronization

I am happy to announce the final feature for RSSOwl 2.1 that has now been added to the 2.1 Beta: Google Reader Synchronization.

Any feed that is under synchronization control will synchronize its article read-state, labels and starred state with your Google Reader account.

Another cool advantage of using your Google Reader account for subscriptions is that you will never loose an article from any feed. Just increase the number of articles you want to keep per feed (up to 1000!) and RSSOwl will download them all.

Please refer to our Beta 2.1 Changelog page to find out more and download the beta.

RSSOwl 2.1 Changelog

The development on upcoming RSSOwl 2.1 has finally reached the milestone of being feature complete. From now on, the focus is on testing and performance optimizations.

For that, the RSSOwl 2.1 Changelog lists instructions how to safely install a nightly and provides an overview of the new features added.
