NetNewsWire 1.0

The “pro” version of NetNewsWire is out. Although I was initially skeptical, NetNewsWire Lite really grew on me. Now it’s probably my favorite new program since Watson.

SpamSieve 1.3

SpamSieve 1.3 is out. The new version is better at identifying spam messages, and it integrates with the system Address Book to help prevent false positives. The statistics code is completely rewritten to use a database rather than lots of Cocoa objects, and as a result memory use and launch and quit times are down. The corpus window also received a lot of engineering time to get good editing performance with tens to hundreds of thousands of rows in the table.

Thanks to the creators of PCRE and SQLite, the beta testers, and everyone who’s registered SpamSieve!
