Software Update: RSSOwl 1.1.3

The development team behind RSSOwl released version 1.1.3 yesterday. The program can retrieve the latest news from various RSS, RDF and Atom feeds over the Internet. Searching for news items is done via the search function and thanks to the tabbed interface you can keep an overview of all the news on offer. Because the program is written in Java, it runs on Linux, Mac OS X, Solaris and Windows, among others. The release notes for this version look like this:
