LifereaLiferea is a news aggregator for online news feeds. There are many other news readers available, but these others are not available for Linux or require many extra libraries to be installed.

Liferea tries to fill this gap by creating a fast, easy to use, easy to install news aggregator for GTK/GNOME.

Here are some key features of "Liferea":
Filters to scrape websites or postprocess feeds.
Supports Enclosures (Podcasting).
Bandwidth saving by supporting feed specified update intervals, HTTP compression and etags.

What's New in 1.0.26 Stable Release:

Fixes a problem of liferea-feed-add with running program detection reported by Pierre Gronlier

What's New in 1.2 RC4 Development Release:
This bugfix release fixes several minor problems and ensures safer feed list writing to avoid corruptions.
