Seems as if ocNews, the ownCloud News client for the Nokia N9, was one of the last Apps for MeeGo that got an update in the Nokia Store. Nokia closed the store for updates and new MeeGo apps on 1st of January 2014, but the most important update of ocNews hit it right before this date.
Version 1.3.1 of ocNews brings some important new features. At first it is now split in two parts, one background engine/daemon and the reader. This makes it possible, that your stuff gets synchronized timed in background.
The daemon also integrates selected feeds into the event view and shows it’s progress in the transfer UI. To be more independent from the reader UI, ocNews now uses the Harmattan accounts settings to manage your ownCloud account. If you have self signed certifiactes, now the Harmattan system (Aegis-Certman) handles these certificates.
Because of the new Nokia Store rules I will publish future updates of ocNews via OpenRepos.net. If you like ocNews, than it would be nice if you purchase it through Nokia Store. The OpenRepos package will have a donation link, if you like that way more. ;-)
One more thing about Nokia Store. It’s still possible to purchase already released stuff there, but publishers can’t change their content anymore. The store description of ocNews still mentions, that background synchronization and evenet feed integration will come in the future. So, here they are, and they are also in the store version, but I can not change the description anymore.
