Black Pixel Acquires NetNewsWire

| By Daniel Pasco

It gives me great pleasure to announce that Black Pixel has acquired NetNewsWire, the beloved family of RSS reader applications developed by legendary Cocoa developer Brent Simmons.

For many of us, NetNewsWire was the inspiration to quit our jobs, get serious about learning Objective-C, and go indie. The fact that we have the opportunity to become a part of its story is a dream come true.

In addition to loving NetNewsWire and its history, we see a lot of potential for its future. It is our hope that the work we do moving forward will inspire others as NetNewsWire and Brent have always inspired us.

NetNewsWire will continue to be developed on iOS and Mac OS X Lion. Formal announcements about roadmap and future releases will be made after Apple’s World Wide Developer Conference has wrapped up. If you are planning on coming to WWDC this year, please look for us. We’d love to meet you.
