NewsGator Technologies released NetNewsWire 2.1b16 earlier today, but later discovered a few bugs (as with all beta releases), which it has now fixed. NetNewsWire 2.1b17 now includes the ability to run on Mac OS X 10.3.9. This update also fixes a bug where, for some people, the refresh commands would never appear and feeds would never refresh, and corrects an issue with long startup times. NetNewsWire 2.1b17 requires Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later.
