We’re also working on NetNewsWire 5.0 for iOS, NetNewsWire 5.0.4 for Mac, and NetNewsWire 5.1 for Mac.
We have a lot going on! But we have multiple contributors, and we can handle it. :)
Here’s the status of each…
NetNewsWire 5.0.3 for Mac
This release is all about performance. NetNewsWire is pretty fast, but it can and should be faster.
Since there are places where we can get performance enhancements without having to stand on our heads, we’re doing them. (I’m a performance junkie, but I draw the line at writing weird code just to get performance.)
I was going to release 5.0.3 this weekend, but I found some more work to do. Just this morning I found a very significant boost we can get when downloading and syncing feeds. I bet we’ll have another beta later this week.
NetNewsWire 5.0.4 for Mac
This will have more bug fixes. It might also appear on the Mac App Store. No guarantee, though.
NetNewsWire 5.1 for Mac
This will have some small features — and one big one: Feedly syncing. (It might have some other syncing systems as well, but for sure we want to get Feedly syncing in there.)
NetNewsWire 5.0 for iOS
It works! I’m using it. Since I commute to work via bus, this is awesome.
We’re going to do a limited TestFlight release, by invitation only, right at first — mainly because I want to get my friend who’s an Award Winning iOS Designer™ to help with it.
After he’s finished with it, then we’ll do a general TestFlight release — you’ll be able to sign up if you want to. I’ll be sure to announce that here and on the NetNewsWire blog.
The plan is for the initial NetNewsWire 5.0 for iOS to include both Feedbin and Feedly syncing, but it’s possible the early TestFlight releases won’t have Feedly yet.
Here’s what the app looks like in Springboard:
