Blam 1.8.0 has been released
It's finally here! Blam with Atom support!Read more
Blam is an RSS reader for the GNOME desktop. Blam features a simple to use interface that lets you focus on the news items. It's also works especially well for reading planet feeds where the same items might be aggregated across several planets.
Thanks to Heath Harrelson Blam finally can read Atom feeds. Everyone who wanted this, make sure to buy him a beer when you next meet him. In order to get warmed up for this task Heath also fixed the problem Livejournal feeds.
Blam 1.8.0 also has some other nice improvements, for example Peter Rother made the state of maximized window be saved rather than the size of the window so that you can un-maximize back to your normal size again. Peter Johanson made Blam work on Mono 1.1.7 and Markus Jonsson took us one step closer to a pure C# version of Blam by replacing the tray icon implementation.
Finally I fixed an issue when starting Blam a second time which caused Blam to crash after a change in Mono. We also has a bunch of updated and new translations, as you can see below.
