AmphetaDesk is developed with Perl and XML. All GUI functions are coded in Perl using libraries from the specific OS as well (since forcing the user to download Tk is a bad thing). Runtime versions are built with Perl2EXE (for Windows) and MacPerl (for Macs). The latest source code is available from SourceForge CVS and is designed to figure out what OS you're using at the time and load in the correct libraries (although you'll probably need to download and install various modules from CPAN). Besides the module dependency, the source code should work without modification.

At the moment, there are two different, incompatible specifications of RSS, with different objectives: RSS 0.9x/RSS 2.0 and RSS 1.0. Straw supports both of them. "
