This bugfix release resolves an issue when synchronizing articles to Google Reader and receiving an error "Bad Request (400)". This could happen when RSSOwl synchronized several hundred articles in one chunk to Google. As such this issue was only showing up for power users. If you have never seen this problem, you can stay on 2.1.2.
To reactivate this blog, I am going to post a tour around RSSOwl features in the upcoming weeks. For power users these posts are likely no news, but it will certainly help newcomers to get the most out of RSSOwl.
Today I would like to emphasize the fact that since RSSOwl is running with Java, you can use RSSOwl on Windows, Mac and Linux. On top of that, RSSOwl is available in nine languages that you can install through plug-ins from the tools menu.
Check out our FAQ for some general tips and tricks while using RSSOwl and come back next week for another feature guide.
To configure this, simply set the number of news to keep per feed (Properties | Clean Up | Maximum number of news to keep) to a high value (up to 1000) and RSSOwl will download all news until the limit is reached. Similar, even when you are on vacation for some weeks, as soon as RSSOwl loads the feed after you are back, you will not loose any article.
More advantages of using Google Reader synchronization can be found in our FAQ.
Nice to see this story from lifehacker naming RSSOwl the best news reader for Linux.
You can find instructions on our Contribute page. Thanks in advance!
With the same mechanism, you can even install additional languages into RSSOwl. Find the list of additional languages from Tools | Language | Download Additional Languages.
