I didn’t mention it here, but Andrej, who is now on our planet, released his first plugin, RSSyl. It is, as its name states, an RSS feed aggregator plugin for Sylpheed-Claws. In my opinion it’s one of the most important external plugin written, as it finally enables hardcore Claws users who have its shortcuts hardwired in the brain to browse blogs and news sources in a really productive way. RSSyl is already a necessity for me, so much snappier than Liferea or whatever aggregator I tried.
Plus, it allows for little bonuses like being able to forward blog posts in two clicks, something you couldn’t do this well with any other solution.
Ubuntu users can try it out very easily after having added our ubuntu repository in their sources.list:
#echo deb http://claws.sylpheed.org/ubuntu/breezy ./ >> /etc/apt/sources.list
#apt-get install sylpheed-claws-rssyl-plugin
