GNOME News RSS Feed Reader Receives Some Much Needed Attention
Written by Michael Larabel in GNOME on 7 March 2016 at 08:06 PM EST. 2 Comments
GNOME News is one of the desktop's applications for serving as an RSS feed reader, but it's in pretty rough shape compared to the rest of the competition and is in need of more development help.

Georges Stavracas has fortunately taken to making some improvements for GNOME News so that it's a better RSS feed reader for the GNOME desktop. Among the newly-added functionality by Stavracas is a working search implementation from the UI, support for starred news items, improved display of empty states, and other usability improvements.

More mock-ups and details for potential GNOME News improvements can be found via this Wiki page, which sadly hasn't been touched since last summer. If you are looking to get involved in GNOME News development to make it a better GTK+ RSS reader, there is the Git repository and this branch for the latest improvements.
