End of the road?

Doesn't seem to want to run under Mavericks. With Open Transport was removed from the Core Services Framework it throws up an alert that it needs "Open Transport" and suggests you update your software.

It's been great!

What a great application--I will be very disappointed if this is the end.

Any suggestions for an alternative? Does YA-NewsWatcher also use Open Transport?

I've periodically looked at Simon Fraser's website and it doesn't look like it's been updated for years. I sent an email but never received a reply a couple years ago. I don't know where he is right now but it's apparent MT-Newswatcher has long since expired and not likely to be updated.

This is very weird.

Firstly, the listing on MacUpdate shows the latest version as 3.5.3b2. In reality the latest version is 3.5.3b3. (That is also the version that the download link points to.)

Secondly, version 3.5.3b3 has been out for years. The date stamp on the app is July 5th, 2008.

I was really disappointed when I realised that this is the version I have been using for ages.

I've been hoping for an update that allows me to fetch the entire listing from the newsgroups that I subscribe to, rather than only listing the 100,000 most recent articles. (Giganews has an insanely long retention nowadays.)

Love this app -- been using it for years. But this version (3.5.2) has a problem: When viewing messages... the scrollbars are inactive... I couldn't page long messages forward to read more. Reverted back to 3.5.1.

MT-NW just rocks! I have been using it for many many years. It's nice to see bug fixes and new features. Keep it up!

Great job to continue to evolve this program. I think I'll finally dump Thoth for this UB app. Keep up this great work!

One request, would be very nice to see the threading within a message window, similar to what has been achieved in the article window. Not sure if this is in the plan?

Downloaded and tried. I think I will be staying with Thoth -- even if only PPC. MT-NW is missing one big feature that Thoth has, the ability to designate a different default save location for each newsgroup.
