RSSOwl 2.2.1 is available

After some time without news from RSSOwl, I am happy to release version 2.2.1. You will now find quick access to common actions like archiving or labeling right below the article content.

In addition, some broken keyword feeds have been fixed and new ones added.... read more

Google Reader is powering down...

You have likely read by now that Google is planning to shutdown their Google Reader service by summer. If you love synchronization (I do!), consider to sign this petition (https://www.change.org/petitions/google-keep-google-reader-running) to keep it alive. Please stay tuned for upcoming announcements how RSSOwl will support synchronization in the future and how you can import your subscriptions safely. Please keep in mind that Google Reader will still continue to work for some months.

RSSOwl 2.1.4 is out

This bugfix release resolves an issue when synchronizing articles to Google Reader and receiving an error "Bad Request (400)". This could happen when RSSOwl synchronized several hundred articles in one chunk to Google. As such this issue was only showing up for power users. If you have never seen this problem, you can stay on 2.1.2.
