Add ability to disable NEWS

Apparently Collaborator Enterprise on an installed system reaches out to SmartBear (home base) to get an RSS news feed (to display on the WebUI home screen I assume)

 

We have Collaborator installed on a closed environment on an internal network.   My admin is unhappy an installed program keeps trying to call home, and having to deal with the log/failures generated when that can’t happen.

 

A response to a problem ticket indicated that this feature cannot be turned off.

 

I ask that a setting (or such) be added to disable news, so machines without internet access don’t have to deal with this news retrieval issue.
