New in version 0.4.3 (November 22nd, 2010)

  • It's now possible to set different instance ids when launching several instances of the app simultaneously, each instance using its own config and dump files.
  • NEWS is now Open Source, released under the terms of the GNU General Public License.

New in version 0.4.2 (November 9th, 2010)

  • The win32 version now uses a modified version of glib-2.26.0-win32 which implements using timeGetTime() instead of GetSystemTimeAsFile().
  • As timeGetTime() uses windows multimedia high resolution timers, this pushes highest resolution of g_timeout_add_*() functions from about 16 ms to 1 ms.
  • So, resolutions of g_timeout_add_*() functions are now similar on both platforms, and this allows us to use g_main_loop*() functions with GTK-win32 instead of threads.
  • Finally, the app is now as stable on Windows as it is on Linux.

New in version 0.4.1 (October 27th, 2010)

  • RSS Ticker v0.4.1 displays feeds as a smooth scrolling line, as known from TV stations. Open feed links in your favourite browser.
