Release Notes: The integrated feed validator was removed due to lack of support for RDF and Atom formats. The new validator allows you to enter the URL of the newsfeed, and will forward to the well-known W3C feed validator that supports all major formats and namespaces. On Windows, the security of the embedded browser was improved by making use of the Local Machine Zone Lockdown, which forces local content to operate in the more secure Internet Zone. Settings are now backed up and restored in case a previous shutdown failed to store them correctly. This should fix issues where all settings were lost.
Release Notes: It is now possible to open an RSS-Feed from a URL that is protected with BASE-Authentication; RSSOwl opens a dialog and prompts for a username and password. The "https" protocol is now supported (as far as is possible with Java). It is now possible to save an RSS XML feed from a URL to view it offline. There's now an option to chose whether RSSOwl should open news automatically in the default browser if the description is empty. Some new icons are available.
Release Notes: A connection via proxy-server is now possible. A menu to set proxy settings (host, port, username, and password) has been added. Importing / exporting of user settings (also containing RSS categories / favorites) has been added. Error message boxes and a print menu item in the File menu have been added. A bug where a deleted favorite appeared after startup showing its URL has been fixed. The size / position of the application window is now saved and loaded after startup.
Release Notes: A serious bug was fixed. Upgrading to this version is recommended because the bug first appeared in version 0.4 and remains in 0.5. New features include the ability to print news, fast loading and searching in an open feed from memory. A button for explicitly reloading from the URL was added. Some icons were added. More sample RSS feeds were added.
