I’m working on NetNewsWire Lite, so we can do a beta soon.

I happened to go the website and noticed something I’d forgotten—which is that we still distribute a version of NetNewsWire Lite (1.0.2) that runs on pre-Jaguar systems.

Whatever you do, do not run it. It doesn’t know about newer features, and it will for sure mess up your prefs and data. 100% guaranteed, bad things.

Since I know what I’m doing, though, I could run it and see if it still launches, so many OS versions later.

Guess what? It works fine. (Hats off to Apple engineers!)
