NetNewsWire Status: Almost Beta
We’ve got just three things still to do before we hit 5.0b1:
One is a bug — when searching, a refresh or sync can end search mode.
Another is kind of a documentation thing: we need a set of sample AppleScript scripts. These will help people learn how to script the app — and it will also give us the chance to exercise the scripting support more thoroughly.
The third thing is to write the Help book and publish it on the web. Luckily I’m a pretty fast writer and I’ve written NetNewsWire Help books before. I’ll probably start with an older version and revise it for 5.0.
I think we can get to 5.0b1 some time in July — but, if we don’t, it’s because it’s summer and people are in and out due to vacations and ball games and cookouts and rock-and-roll shows. We’re super-eager to ship, but living life comes first. :)
