Newsbeuter 1.0: RSS Feed Reader for Text Terminals and Podcasts

Aug 21, 2008

On August 20, developer Andreas Krennmair announced the official release of Newsbeuter, the “mutt of RSS feed readers.”

“Exactly 650 days after I started developing newsbeuter, I declare newsbeuter officially 'finished,' in the sense that it contains all the features that I wanted to have in it,” he said.

Newsbeuter RSS feeder reminds of mutt

Newsbeuter can subscribe to RSS 0.9x, 1.0, 2.0, and Atom feeds, and is designed with Unix and Unix-like systems in mind, hence the comparison to Mutt and Slrn. Its generous configurability allows keyboard shortcuts and a ''killfile'' that automatically removes unwanted articles.

Newsbeuter 1.0 is available for download on the project homepage, along with information on dependancy, compiling, and configuration. The open source program is under MIT-/X-Consortium license.
