You have got to wonder why Black Pixel didn’t have NetNewsWire 4 ready for the Google Reader shutdown. Yet lots of folks are glad to see NNW back. There appears to be nothing “new” per se in this beta seed other than lots and lots of fixes and tweaks.

• NetNewsWire 4 Beta 3 (download)
— Fixed issue where opening or switching tabs could cause a lockup of up to 1 second on certain Macs
— Fixed sharing of browser tabs so that they behave as you would expect.
— Removed the “Load Unloaded Tabs” menu item as it should now be unneeded
— Tweaked app icon to be less “droopy”
— Tweaked LetsMove to avoid overwriting an existing app you might have in /Applications
— Fixed issue where manually placing a site in a folder could position it at the incorrect location
— Fixed issue where manual sort ordering was lost on relaunch
— Fixed issue where the notification bezel could display large when it shouldn’t
— Better parsing of ATOM feeds to fix issues with certain invalid sites.
Fixed issue where Popular Sites wouldn’t detect some of the sites you had previously added
— Fixed issue where when all sites within a Popular Sites section were added, it would only show the mixed checkbox instead of a full check
— Fixed issue where the source list had no scrollbar
— Fixed issue where the unread count of a site could get clipped
— Find Next and Find Previous menu items should now cycle you through find bar results
— Improved stability
— See full release notes for complete list of changes

Knowledgeable sources say, NetNewsWire 4 is OS X Mavericks compatible.

That said, developer Black Pixel encourages users to “Keep sending in those crash reports.”
