Ranchero Software has posted NetNewsWire 1.0.5b1, the latest beta release of the company’s popular RSS news reader and Weblog editor. “The main point of 1.0.5 is to fix bugs,” notes developer Brent Simmons. “There’s just one new feature, the ability to prefer permalinks or external links. (After 1.0.5 will come 1.1, which will have several new features.)” View the release notes for a complete list of improvements.
