NetNewsWire is an important app to me both because I have been actively using it as my news reader for over 15 years, and because it is literally the progenitor of MarsEdit! MarsEdit began as an in-app blogging feature before Brent spun it out into its own app
Recently on Twitter, Becky Hansmeyer observed that MarsEdit and NetNewsWire’s icons appeared to be related:

In fact, they are part of some “indie blogging software suite,” as informal as it may be. And MarsEdit has been getting lonely in this suite! After a long hiatus, it’s great to see NetNewsWire being actively developed again, not only by its original author, but with the help of a bunch of fresh new minds who I’m sure will carry it forward for many major updates to come.
