New version of Straw is underway, we’re working hard on new features and overall improvements. You can learn more about current status and plans at the wiki.
I made a small screencast of some of new features that are actually working :-) In the video you can see:
- new tree view-based feed list
- feed item aggregation – if you click on a category, all items from child feeds are shown
- feed discovery dialog – you can type only website address and Straw will try to discover any news sources on that page
Many things are still not finished, like downloading (and showing) feed icons (favicons), “search folders”, improved UI dialogs (applying Gnome Human Interface Guidelines).
Stay tuned, and, of course, feedback is very appreciated!
