Projects / whatsnewfm


whatsnewfm is a filter for the daily freshmeat newsletter. It shows only news items that you haven't seen before (so you don't have to read about every update of applications that you aren't interested in). You can also set up a list of "interesting" applications where you want to be informed of every update.
