NetNewsWire Lite 2.0b22: user interface makeover
NetNewsWire Lite 2.0b22 has been posted to the NetNewsWire Betas page.
We hadn’t done a beta of the Lite version since 2.0b6â€”which meant, among other things, that Lite users didn’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.
