A minor update available only to App Store folks? I guess customer service is overrated these days.

This piece of software has been all but abandoned, and this minor update has not fixed any of the 10.6.x instabilities and bugs (beach balls like crazy). Could be a decent, streamlined RSS reader, but needs a lot of love under the hood before it can be used with any confidence. Cannot recommend.

Broken on 10.6, it seems developer moved on to other things and doesn't plan to update it anytime soon. Avoid.

@Admin warning. The download link is broken. Anyway, testing high and low, i found no way to import a OPML (flat or structured) into this thing. Yes, there is an 'Import' menu but...you are asked to register an OPML file NOT to open one. Bah! No Drag and drop of Feeds from Mail/NNW to Headline (single file or multiple files). Animation, yada yada and then the Usability ABC isn't there. Who did the design of this Application from usability POV? Fire him! URL Copy and pasting from NNW result in a malformed URL in the Headline URL field. You have to remove the (unnecessary) trailing space from the URL to get Headline to recognize it. After all this, Headline goes in a wonderful loop trying to validate the URL. I'm here from 5 minutes waiting this damned dialog box to activate the OK button. As you can see for yourself (in the shot), the Feed's titles are often truncated so you have to enlarge the window to accomodate a quick eye scrolling. In this way, the entire UI fill almost the same screen space of, say, NF. Another Usability fault. Good in a shot, bad in everyday workflow. And so on and on. Stick with NNW/NF/Mail. Free, Usable applications and save your money for something valuable.
