A real push mechanism?
Or do you mean just pulling a most recent rss or atom feed?

If you meaned the last, I'm in favour to just hack some javascript lines
together and pull our own 'news feed', which also has the releases and
messages from blog.qgis.org.

If we keep it a 'News and Announcements'-tab (note the tab size ;-) ),
we could download the feed ONLY when the user deliberately has a look
into that tab?
In that way people who do not want to download anything, do not download
the feed (but only miss our nice blog posts).
But off course this is not real push...

Or am I missing something here?
