Brent Simmons announced a few minutes ago that his company, Ranchero Software, has released NetNewsWire 1.0 (previously referred to as NetNewsWire Pro).

The free version, NetNewsWire Lite (released last year), is a RSS news aggregator. It reads RSS feeds from your favorite web sites and services, and allows you to read them "one item at a time" in a familiar, email-like interface.

NetNewsWire: NetNewsWire has all of the features of Lite, but adds some important features. The most important new feature, and the one that will certainly get the most press, is that it's a publishing tool. NNW allows you to write your own weblog posts and submit them to your weblog via one of the supported "Weblog API's."

Other new features include full scriptability, an outline-based notepad, a find command for searching through all of the items currently in the database, and a bunch of other stuff I'd list if I was pretending to be a brochure. (I'm just a satisfied user and one of Brent's friends.)

A bunch of people on the beta list paid for copies of NNW as soon as he made it possible to do so. I hope this is the beginning of NNW (and Brent) gaining the momentum and success they deserve.

Congratulations, Brent! You're a daddy!
