newsbeuter 2.2 released

Today, on a slow day at Chemnitzer Linuxtage 2010, I released newsbeuter 2.2. So, what does this new release offer?

First of all, the latest and greatest feature is Google Reader support. With this support, you can manage your RSS subscriptions at Google Reader, and use newsbeuter as a client to read your feeds. The “read” status for each article is synchronized via Google Reader, and even support for Google Reader features such as “starring” (i.e. bookmarking) and “sharing” articles (so that other people that follow you) is available. The documentation has all the essential information about it.

In addition, a great number of bugs was fixed. The killfile functionality was also extended, a “hard quit” key was added (thanks to Jim Pryor), and the HTML renderer was extended with a table renderer (many thanks for Stefan Erben!). Another additional feature is a new “open-in-browser-and-mark-read” keybinding (thanks to Isaac Good!).

So, have fun with newsbeuter 2.2! Don’t hesitate to send feedback!

    Thanks a lot for this wonderful rss reader. It has helped me focus and find great things.

    For anyone else who uses Opera and would like to open in new background-tags without raising the browser:
    browser “opera -remote ‘openURL(%u,new-tab,noraise)'”

    Thanks for that nice piece of software ! It’s fast and light. But I cannot use it because it doesn’t seem possible to customize the “reload time” for each feed, I really need such feature.. Do you intend to add it in the near future ?

    Is it just me, but a list of elements that can be colored would really help…

    What about a support of imlib2 for the pictures ?

    Sir, your software is very close to perfect.
    My score = 98%
    The remaining 2% would be it it could make me a cup of coffee while I read my feeds.

    In a perfect world, all software would work like newsbeuter!
