The newsreader project

Here is the RCP application of the newsreader project. Remember, it is still Beta software. You can read, reply an post. Windows, Mac and Linux.

Known issues

  • The article view tree does not render well on all platforms.
  • Switch of secure storage in the preferences for linux.
  • Do not yank down the thumb slider all away to the bottom for large newsgroups. This causes Salvo to read all articles and that takes long.
  • No links in text
  • No attachments


stability and added a Derby store implementation

New and Notable


  • stability
  • Derby store implementation (activate the correct plugin to get your favorite store implementation and restart the navigator view)
  • Started with ECF container implementation

Download RCP

All Platforms


Unpack the zip and run the Salvo executable. Add a news server, add newsgroups then doubleclick a newsgroup to read its messages. It is pretty simple but here is a three.three minute instruction without audio. Send me a mail on my gmail or tweet me at twitter if you download this. You can send bug reports and feature requests also to one of these addresses.


The code has a pluggable server and persistance implementation. The reference persistance impl uses the local file system and stuff is stored in a .salvo directory in your home directory.
