How to Run rss2email on Centos

rss2email user Ben Chapman has written a nice guide to setting up rss2email on Centos 5.x.

Version 2.66 Released

A new version of rss2email is available for Windows and for UNIX. For the first time in quite a while, actual new features were added in addition to some significant bug fixes. From the CHANGELOG: v2.66 (2009-12-21) Complete packaging of all necessary source files (rss2email, html2text, feedparser, r2e, etc.) into one bundle Included a more […]

The new home for rss2email is here

It appears that the old host (Infogami) is now for sale and could go dark at any time. They’ve been nice enough to leave our project site up, but we need to find a more stable home so this will be it for now. I had recently started the weblog All Things RSS, so it […]

New Version of Web UI Released

For quite some time r2eui, the web front-end to rss2email, has been broken because of extensive changes to the web.py framework that it depends on. Recently I got around to updating it to work with the most current framework version. Here are updated packages for Windows and UNIX. Note that r2eui depends on the 0.3x […]

Version 2.65 Released

A new version 2.65 is here. This should fix any deprecation warnings you’re seeing if you’re running Python v2.6 and some other issues. See the CHANGELOG for more.

Version 2.64 Released

The new version is here. Once again it’s about bug fixes. From the CHANGELOG: missing charsets won’t crash it, not having sendmail prints a useful error message and under SunOS should lock the feeds file properly.

Also a Good Time to Update

For a while we’ve recommended upgrading to a development version of feedparser to combat the many feed parsing errors that generate a lot of support email to us. Instructions for doing this are here. Also, it looks as if html2text has been updated recently so we recommend upgrading that as well.

Version 2.63 Released

At Aaron’s request we’ve updated the rss2email license to GPL 2 & 3 from just GPL 2. Also a couple of bug fixes were implemented.

How to rss2wii

John Zeitler has written up instructions on how to read RSS feeds on the Nintendo Wii. Now you can read your feeds on the big screen from the comfort of your own couch. Do remember to keep the Wiimote strapped to your wrist at all times though.

Version 2.62 Released

Small bug fix version again that makes local feeds work, for example /home/user/file.rss.
