This project is read-only.
Bonobo Reader is a desktop application for reading any kind of information. It was designed for downloading RSS Feeds, but reader became more general. It is modular, so you may be able to use any kind of provider (Twitter and IRC are planned or you can write your own).


Actually there are no releases because the project is still in development. Stay tuned...
