Ranchero Software has released an update for NetNewsWire, bringing it to version 1.0.6. NetNewWire is a utility designed for automated Internet news harvesting. The update features several bug fixes and an updated Sites Drawer. According to Ranchero Software:
Ranchero Software announces the release of new versions of the award-winning NetNewsWire, the easy-to-use RSS Web newsreader for Mac OS X, and its freeware version, NetNewsWire Lite.
This release fixes one particular performance bug, where during a refresh sometimes HTML descriptions would be slow to appear.
NetNewsWire 1.0.6 also fixes a rare crashing bug in the download code and makes the RSS parser more forgiving of feeds with character encoding bugs. The Sites Drawer has also been updated with this release.
