NetNewsWire is returning home. Brent Simmons first shipped NetNewsWire Lite way back in 2002 and it played a significant role in the early popularity of RSS on the Mac. I’ve written a few things about it over the years, including this post in 2002 when I switched to using it.
It has been fun to watch Brent start over with Evergreen, document the progress in public on his blog and GitHub, and now it’s fitting to see that work evolve into the next official version of NetNewsWire. NetNewsWire 5 will also have great support for JSON Feed and Micro.blog. Congrats Brent!
