NewsHoard is a news reader application which can be used to keep abreast of the latest postings on any Internet site which supports a news backend file or to access Usenet newsgroup postings. NewsHoard is capable of interpreting the contents of both RSS (Resource Description Framework (RDF) Site Summary) and three-line simple text news backend files and of decoding and displaying attachments for Usenet posts.
As far as the backend newsfeed functionality goes, unlike most other programs which monitor the news sites constantly for changes, NewsHoard currently does no monitoring at all. It will fetch the headlines when you ask it to update them but otherwise will remain inactive. This might change in the future depending on user feedback.
