Liferea 0.5.0 has been released

Liferea (Linux Feed Reader) is a fast, easy to use, and easy to install GNOME news aggregator for online news feeds. It supports a number of different feed formats including RSS/RDF, CDF, Atom, OCS, and OPML.


* "Select file" works when adding a "command" source in the feed properties.
* Liferea should now build with gcc 2.95 again.
* Toolbars now obey the GNOME toolbar setting with respect to if icons, text, or both are desired to be shown.
* Fixes some memory leaks in the namespace parsing.


* New Russian translation (Alekseev Vladimir)
* New Czech translation (Juraj Kubelka)
* Feed Link Autodiscovery, this means you can subscribe to any website's and the feed link is determined automatically. (ahmed el-helw)
* Mozilla browser module supports zooming now. (Lars Lindner)
* Scroll down or next unread feature for Mozilla, and is now triggered by space instead of shift-space.
* Improved HTML stylesheet. This will cause current items to be duplicated the first time that 0.5.0 is run.
* Relative links in HTML plugins are now supported.
* HTML plugin interface has changed.
* Added news reader icon drawn by Jakob Steiner as recommended application launcher icon.
* Added a simple manual page.
* The feed downloading now is concurrent to avoid long waiting times on timeouts or slow feed sources. The default concurrency is 3. The value can be configured by setting the gconf key /apps/liferea/update-thread-concurrency
* Scheduled feed updates are calculated based on the time of the last poll of the feed, which is saved across restarts of Liferea. This means that feeds needing updates (based on the update interval) are automatically updated when Liferea starts. If the close box is used in the Liferea main window when the systray icon is active, Liferea will close its main window, but not quit. Click the systray icon to show the main window
