Please make RSS syndication GUI to look like in qBitTorrent application. Easy to use and nice navigate. Current implementation of RSS GUI is not user friendly.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start kTorrent and enable Syndication plugin
2. Go to syndication
3. Start qbittorrent and compare implementations of both RSS GUI's.
See description and steps to reproduce.

This looks similar to akregator GUI.
Not user friendly in what way ?
Well, see attached screenshot from qbittorrent app.
There you can see that RSS feeds are organized similar to akregator (list on the left, articles on top right, selected article content on bottom right). There is no need to open feeds in tabs, just use it as a regular RSS reader.
BTW, if someone needs me to test changes for this improvement, just send me compiled binaries for x64 platform, and I'll report results.

Great! I can test new plugin and do some verifications/regression testing if needed. Where do i find new binaries, or should I just wait for new KDE updates?
How can I confirm that fix is working?
I updated ktorrent from official kubuntu repositories, and GUI is same as before. No changes are visible.
Currently using KTorrent
Using KDE Development Platform 4.10.1
> Version 4.2.1
The fix is only on the master branch, and 4.2.1 was even released long before that fix (compare the dates). So you need to build ktorrent from git master to try the improvement.
