RSS View 1.4: Eclipse RSS Reader Goes Open Source
RSS View is an RSS/Atom reader that keeps you always up-to-date. Unlike standard news readers, it is designed to integrate into Eclipse and coexist with your workbench. You have everything at one place. RSS View may also improve your development process by integrating your bug tracker, development forum or wiki directly in your IDE. Features include grouping and filtering news feed items, offline feeds, and several customizations.
RSS View 1.4.0 is the first major release since it became an open source project hosted on java.net only a few weeks ago. The compact UI is the main characteristic of this Eclipse feed reader. You can easily keep track of your feeds while working in Eclipse. Unlike web readers, it can access intranet feeds directly, which makes it particularly suitable to integrate with your development infrastructure and
The new features of Version 1.4 are:
- The new multi-threaded feed fetching gets your feeds much faster. Stuck feed servers will also never affect other feeds anymore.
- The article preview window lets you browse through the complete contents of an article.
- Some small improvements and fixes: For example, there's a new icon indicates if new articles are available, which is especially nice in the minimized mode.
To give it a try, simply add http://www.junginger.biz/eclipse as an Update Site in Eclipse and follow the installation wizard.
