Using suitable software (RSS aggregator or RSS reader), you can receive news published on the KCE site in real time. The RSS aggregator takes you directly to the news page.

How to obtain an RSS reader

There is a range of software for reading RSS feeds, each with its own features. Some web browsers and email readers also offer this function.

KCE does not recommend any specific software. One way to find a reader is to search the web using terms such as: “free rss reader”, or “open-source rss reader”.
