Big thanks to ktm! Although no new feature is added, this version refreshes many libraries and compiler used by GreatNews. It should have better compatibility and performance.

Ver 1.0 (Build 386) released on 04/03/2010 by ktm
+ Updated zlib to 1.2.4 (was: 1.2.1 - Two of the three intermediate updates were security critical!)
+ Updated SQLite to (was: 3.6.11)
+ Worked around a Wine annoyance related to InternetSetOption()

Download from

I will move this version to public release after several days if no major bugs are found.

The source code of this release can be found at GreatNews Development board.

Hi, I tried to install the over The install proceeded (BTW, for some reason the update checker contacts a site named , why?). After install Greatnews opened and all my feeds where gone (!). Instead there was a bunch of other feeds there, yahoo, CNN, chinese blogs and so on. Maybe a set of default install feeds? After closing and restarting Greatnews my regular feeds appeared again. But the help > about infobox then says "version Datafile version".

How do I do a complete update and still keep all my feeds? If I first uninstall greatnews and then reinstall, will the feeds still be there?

I should add that I have two copies of Greatnews installed on the computer, for different types of feeds if that makes any difference.
