InterNews Caveats

Send Article to a Friend

InterNews Caveats -- A number of people wrote in response to my InterNews review to note that it isn't as fast as Nuntius and cannot display (though it can save) text after the first 32K, which causes problems with long messages such as the Info-Mac Digest posted in comp.sys.mac.digest (but TidBITS sneaks in, since it's almost always less than 32K). A few bugs were flushed out by the release, and Roger Brown said that he's working on fixing them, so keep an eye out for an update this fall.
