Andrew Rawnsley of R-Comp told us "The most significant releases are new DialUp3 and NetFetch 2 versions - 3.1 and 2.1 respectively. The .1 versions contain significant enhancements to both the programs, and particularly the Hermes mail transfer software that powers them."
The new version of Hermes allows you to get Icon Bar headlines straight to your inbox by using the RSS feed. Andrew explained "The new version of Hermes will download as many of these feeds as you wish, and keep track of which headlines you've seen. It turns them into emails, which are then delivered straight to your email program". Hermes also allows you to read your mail without downloading it from the server, and set a maximum size for messages to download.
Uniprint has been updated to handle shared printers better, and Grapevine 2 has had "tweaks and enhancements" as requested by users.
It seems RSS clients are like busses. They all come along at once with TIB editor Phil Mellor and NetSurf developer James Bursa also releasing free RSS clients this week.
