NewsGator has released version 3.1 of NetNewsWire, a closed source feed reader for the Mac. The big change in this release is that it's now free-as-in-beer. They've apparently discovered that selling customers private reading details is a more profitable enterprise than selling software so they want to get it into as many hands as possible. Personally I prefer network clients that don't send my subscriptions and reading lists back to the mother ship.
