NewsMonster 1.2.2 Released, PRO Version Now Free of Charge

Thursday October 23rd, 2003

Kevin Burton writes in with news that NewsMonster 1.2.2 has been released. While previous versions of the weblog aggregator were available in both free and PRO editions, NewsMonster 1.2.2 only comes as a PRO release, which is now free of charge. Kevin writes: "This was a long and hard decision but it seems to make sense considering that my major goal with this release was to build a distributed reputation system and very advanced RSS aggregator. Since most of these features were locked up in NewsMonster PRO this kind of defeated the whole purpose." The NewsMonster site has more information and download links.

There are many problems with this program's integration to Firebird. But, this can become a great standalone application and part of mozilla 2.0 suite after UI is made more user friendly and probably simpler. Being part of mozilla suite will give more publicity encouraging websites to provide content more easily in Newsmonster format (whatever that might be) and make Newsmonster one of the unique portals and unique feature for mozilla.
