Publisher's Description:

RSSOwl | RSS / RDF / Atom Newsreader - RSSOwl is a free RSS / RDF / Atom Newsreader written in Java using SWT as graphic library.

RSS ("Really Simple Syndication" or "Rich Site Summary") is a document specification

that gives users the power to collect and organize Web-based news and information in

a more efficient manner. Applications that collect data from RSS-compliant sites are

called RSS readers or "aggregators". RSSOwl is such an application. It lets you gather,

organize, update, and store information from any compliant source in a convenient, easy

to use interface, save selected information in various formats for offline viewing and

sharing, and much more.

Why "Owl"? The owl is a traditional symbol of wisdom, and a quiet, efficient hunter. You'll find

RSSOwl's "big eyes" a big help when scanning the Web's vast array of RSS resources.

Top12 Features why you should use RSSOwl:

o High performance and native Look and Feel that uses the operation-system GUI theme

o Great platform support: Use RSSOwl on Windows, Linux, Mac, Solaris

o Import/Export newsfeeds with OPML (Outline Processor Markup Language)

o Generate PDF/RTF/HTML documents from any news

o Use drag and drop to manage your favorites in unlimited nested categories

o Loaded newsfeeds are automatically stored in an archive to read them while being offline

o Powerfull, integrated Newsfeed searchengine

o Perform a fulltext-search with result-syntaxhighlight

o AmphetaRate integration to rate news and receive recommendations

o RSSOwl is highly customizable (set Fonts, Hotkeys, Language,...)

o Display news in the internal browser

o Big Tutorial and FAQ to help you manage your new newsreader

Supported Languages: 27 (English, Russian, Chinese, German and much more).

RSSOwl comes with a huge list of sample favorites.

RSSOwl runs on Windows (98/ME/NT/2000/XP), Linux (GTK2), Mac OS X and Solaris.

Show all changes

Version 1.1.2 from 2005-06-12

We are happy to announce the second bugfix-release for the 1.1 branch. With an update to the latest SWT
version, two of the most annoying Browser bugs on windows got fixed. Say goodbye to the dialog that kept
popping up, in case the visited webpage contained erroneous JavaScript. The other bugfix helps for Blogs
that show images in their Newsitems. In some cases, RSSOwl showed just a blank, empty page when clicking
on one of these.

On the feature side, RSSOwl 1.1.2 is bringing two new update intervals: 30 Minutes and 6 Hours.
In addition it is now possible to hide the small Toolbar that is placed in the Favorites Tree by accessing
its context-menu and unchecking the "Toolbar" entry.

See the Changelog at for a complete list of changes.

May the Owl be with you,

Version: 1.1.2

I downloaded RSSOwl (version 2.0.4, exe file), but after initializing the RSSOwl setup and installing it the program failed to run. Any suggestions on this matter will be appreciated.

Pretty good aggregator

I was looking for an RSS reader which would actually aggregate all my feeds into one stream. So many readers just list items in a folder structure only.

RSS Owl does exactly want I want, except for one thing - the default date sort order is newest to oldest. While I can change that to oldest to newest, I'd like that choice to 'stick' the next time I run the program.

Does not run

I tried it on an OS/2 machine that routinely runs Java programs, but it would not even load, aborting without any visible error message.

In contrast, ThinFeeder runs without any problem right "out of the box."
