I am happy to announce the availability of version 1.6.0 of ocNews, the ownCloud News App client for MeeGo 1.2 Harmattan (Nokia N9) and Jolla SailfishOS. This new version brings some new features, fixes, changes and translations.
First thing to mention is, that it is now possible to choose between two different layouts for the main/start view. There is still the old folder centred view, that displays your folders and a click on it brings you to their feeds. The new view is a flat feed view, where all feeds are displayed on one page, categorized by their parent folders. You can change your preferred layout in the settings.
Finally I found the time to reorganize my code a bit and upload it to Github. So, everyone that is interested in the code or want to contribute can find it there now.
A few days ago I also release version 1.5.1 to OpenRepos.net with only minor changes.
For all the people that want to know more about the usage of ocNews, I recorded two new videos and updated the usage guide.
If you want to know more about ocNews (videos, changelog, guide, etc.), go here.
ocNews version 1.5.0 is now released for MeeGo 1.2 Harmattan and Sailfish OS on OpenRepos.net. The main new feature is the ability to sort the news items. You can set a default behavior in the settings but can still change the sorting for a view temporarily. On Sailfish OS use the pull down menu of an article list view to access the temporary options. On Harmattan it is in the menu of the article list view.
ocNews 1.4.1 is now available for Sailfish OS, too. Because Nokia closed its Store for new MeeGo apps beginning with 1st of January 2014 both versions, for Saiflish OS and Harmattan, are now on OpenRepos.net. ocNews for Sailfish OS is a native app that uses the Silica UI components. On both operating systems the ocNews background engine is not started as a daemon anymore. Instead of that the engine daemon is now started on request by the reader app through a D-Bus call. This makes it possible, to close the whole app (reader and engine) completely. Here you can find the complete changelog.
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.
They could keep their promise with the delivery in December… 🙂 So, porting ocNews to Sailfish OS can start.
There’s life in the old dog yet. Yes, Nokia under Elop did not love the N9 really, but the community did – and many love it still today. So, here is something for the people that don’t have their Jolla yet.
ocNews is a client app for the ownCloud News Application, a cloud based Atom/RSS feed aggregator. It is designed for the Nokia N9 mobile phone and it’s MeeGo 1.2 Harmattan operating system. The next step will be Jolla’s Sailfish OS.
Currently version 1.2.4 is available in the Nokia Store, version 1.3.0 is already on it’s way to it. Sources are coming soon.
Ich habe meine nicht vorhandene US-Flagge auch nicht auf Halbmast gesetzt. Ein Sheriff irgendwo in South Carolina im Süden der USA hat natürlich die passende Fahne, und die hing sogar schon auf Halbmast, aber entgegen Obamas Anweisung setzte er sie wieder auf Vollmast. Toll. Nelson Mandelas Tot ist ihm also egal. Und in China ist etwas umgefallen.
Warum also beglückt uns Spiegel Online nun mit dieser Sensation? Na, es passt so wunderbar ins Klischee des tumben, ewig rassistischen US-Südstaatlers. Da ist die deutsche Empörungsseele gleich so richtig befriedigt. Und genau darum geht es ja.
