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.
While this is not an official call for beta testers, the nightlies of RSSOwl 2.1 are considered stable enough to be used by the brave and good enough to report some feedback.
For that, the RSSOwl 2.1 Changelog lists instructions how to safely install a nightly and provides an overview of the new features added.
The next release of RSSOwl will include lots of new features that I am very happy to announce today. Work is closely coming to an end on RSSOwl 2.1 and a public beta will be announced in June. It is hard to name the top 5 features, because there are many more. Here you go:
- new headlines and list layout
- redesigned newspaper view
- news archiving
- readability support
- unlimited news storage
Stay tuned. I will announce the features in greater detail after the beta has been announced.
You can help spread the word about RSSOwl by adding a positive review there too. Thanks in advance!
PS: Expect some cool new things in next RSSOwl 2.0.7 (don't ask for a release date please ;-)).
RSSOwl 2.0.6 is now available for download containing some bugfixes and a few new features. Most notable, the Google Reader import is functional again. Existing users can easily update using the integrated update manager (Help | Check for Updates).
This new release of RSSOwl 2.0.5 comes with quite some bugfixes, performance and stability improvements as you can see from the changelog. Existing users can easily update using the integrated update manager (Help | Check for Updates).
Linux and Mac users should consider reinstalling RSSOwl completely as the framework for the user interface was updated for this release. This framework is not part of the usual update.
