Version 1.5 - the first release in over a year - adds/changes the following from 1.2.1:
NewsLife requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later.

Also, if you have an older Mac, be sure to check out the "Classic" applications page for more options.

These are applications that are newer and of potential interest, but which I haven't yet selected for permanent inclusion. Have a look, and let me know if you think they deserve to be part of the permanent collection!
