Reviews

Akregator is a RSS feed aggregator for K Desktop Environment. Feed aggregators provide a convenient way to browse different kinds of content, including news, blogs and other content from online sites. Instead of checking all of you favorite web sites manually for updates, Akregator collects the content for you.

Akregator is an open source news aggregator which supports both RSS and Atom feeds, that can be sorted into categories. Akregator can be configured to fetch all feeds within regular intervals but also, the user can choose the update intervals for every feed, for individual feeds or for those in a selected category. Articles can be opened in tabs within Akregator or an external browser as Konqueror or Firefox can be used to read them.

Akregator has a basic interface, similar to any other feed reader. Feeds are listed on the left site and clicking on a feed brings up the list of posts from the feed. Akregator has three modes:

Leftovers: KDE

  • Kubuntu Wily Alpha 2

    We launched Plasma Mobile at KDE’s Akademy conference, a free, open and community made mobile platform.
  • The Sun Sets on KDE-Solaris
    The KDE-Solaris site has been shuttered. The subdomain now redirects to KDE techbase, which documents the last efforts related to KDE on then-OpenSolaris. From the year 2000 or earlier until 2013, you could run KDE — two, three or four — on Solaris, either SPARC or (later) x86. I remember doing packaging for my university, way back when, on a Sun Enterprise 10000 with some ridiculous amount of memory — maybe 24GB, which was ridiculous for that time. This led — together with some guy somewhere who had a DEC Alpha — to the first 64-bitness patches in KDE. Solaris gave way to OpenSolaris, and Stefan Teleman rebooted the packaging efforts in cooperation with Sun, using the Sun Studio compiler. This led to a lot of work in the KDE codebase in fixing up gcc-isms. I’d like to think that that evened up the road a little for other non-gcc compilers later.
