Ranchero Software’s Brent Simmons has announced the public betas of NetNewsWire and MarsEdit on his blog.

NetNewsWire?s new features including searching, flagged items, persistence, per-feed refresh settings, new icons by Bryan Bell and Jon Hicks, embedded browser, smart lists, search engine subscriptions, script subscriptions?and more. The weblog editor was removed completely.
MarsEdit was more of a from-scratch application. We kept (but revised) some of the under-the-hood plumbing that was in NetNewsWire?s weblog editor, but then we completely re-designed the user interface to make it work more like email. There?s a main window that lists your weblog and recent posts, and you create and edit posts in separate windows?just like using an email program.

If you download the NetNewsWire 2.0 public beta you can subscribe to the PowerPage RSS feed by clicking on the Sites drawer (upper right) and we’re listed under Macintosh and Technology. Props to Jimi Robinson, chief pixel pusher, for the new PowerPage favicon!
