False spyware warning on rssowl.exe *update*

Some users informed me about the fact that Kaspersky recently detects rssowl.exe as Hoax.Win32.SpyWare. This is of course wrong and I already informed them. If you receive the same virus warning from any other anti-virus product, please leave a comment.

Update: The issue is resolved!

Mac version fixed and Linux RPMs released

Good news, the Mac version was updated and should no longer crash when managing favorites.

The RPMs for Linux 32 and 64 Bit are released today as well, thanks Kay!
