NetNewsWire Lite 2.0b22: user interface makeover
NetNewsWire Lite 2.0b22 has been posted to the NetNewsWire Betas page.
We hadnâ€™t done a beta of the Lite version since 2.0b6â€”which meant, among other things, that Lite users didnâ€™t have the user interface changes that were in recent betas of the full version.
The idea was in part to make the interface more attractive, give it a more modern lookâ€”but the main reasons have to do with usability.
In Pushing the Edge, Jonathan â€œWolfâ€ Rentzsch wrote: â€œThe controls have been pushed to the absolute bottom. The lists abut the left and right sides of the window. Not a pixel of margin. The new UI looks simpler but actually does more.â€
This release of NetNewsWire Lite gets some other new features too, such as per-feed refresh settings, datelines, and subscriptions sorting. See the change notes for more details.
