NetNewsWire 5.1

Ranchero Software has released NetNewsWire 5.1 with improvements and new features to bring the Mac desktop edition of the RSS reader in parity with the iOS app. The update adds support for syncing with Feedly, allows multiple RSS browser windows, introduces the Clean Up command (to hide read articles immediately when the app is set to hide read articles), tweaks several user interface items on the Timeline, adds the Shift-Space keyboard shortcut to scroll backward, and ensures that you can add feeds with non-ASCII URLs. (Free, 6.3 MB, macOS 10.15+)

  1. One step froward two steps back. A removal of functionality. I can not endorse the update.

    Shortcomings in NetNewsWire 5.1:

    — No manual arrangement of Reading list: View>Arrange Sites> Manual
    —No alternate layout option for viewing articles: Preferences>Reading>Layout
    —No auto import of past bookmarks/reading List from previous version

    I had to restore the old version 4.1 and fallback.
