NetNewsWire 2.1b16 has been released.
I backed up my feed info and have been running this beta version for awhile.
It is a lot faster (due to not having to go through Rosetta, and other perf issues that have been addressed).
NetNewsWire is the best RSS reader that I have used. I get to nest away my folders yet read all of the subdirs from the top level. I wish I could do this from email.
Also, they have got the beginnings of the feature that I really want. You can sort subscriptions by “Attention”. This means that feeds I care about swim to the top. This can become a self fulfilling prophecy though :)
I would like to manually rank my subscriptions too, and have it feed into this algorythm. This would allow me to scale, which is currently tough without using a full process manually, and not helped by the tools.
