Via Chris Messina, I see that my feed reader of choice, NetNewsWire, has been updated to v2.1.
I downloaded the new version this morning and although I was downloading the beta’s as they rolled out, 2.1 seems to be a huge step forward.
The biggest issue I had with the latest beta (2.1b37) was that it seemed to hog the processor when downloading feeds – this appears to have been addressed in the released version.
The biggest step forward with this version is the ability to synch feeds. I run NetNewsWire on my laptop and desktop machines – with the synching, I can read my feeds on either and the read status is synch’d on both machines – wohoo!
Good job NewsGator!
I got an email this morning from a Tom Atkins. Tom had read about my various issues with FeedLounge and trying to sort out an online RSS Feed aggregator so I can keep my feeds synched across computers. Tom suggested I have a look at an online RSS Feeds aggregator called Gregarius and I did and I have to say I am impressed with it!
Gregarius is designed to run on your web server, allowing you to access your feeds from wherever you want. It is free, open source, web standards compliant (renders XHTML/CSS), supports OPML, has tagging, full text search and is full of AJAXy goodness(!).
What more could you want?
