What's new in this version:

- Significantly enhanced performance during syncs and refreshes. Fetching articles from the database is also faster
- When running for the first time, and the user previously used NetNewsWire 3, it will automatically import NetNewsWire 3 subscriptions instead of the defaults for new users
- You can also import NetNewsWire 3 subscriptions via the new File > Import NNW3 Subscriptions… command
- Keyboard shortcuts: the 's' key toggles starred status. The 'r' and 'u' keys now both toggle read status (instead of setting read and unread status, respectively)
- Articles view: articles where the feed icon is quite large would be slow to render — now they render as fast as other articles
- Articles view: a bug where keyboard shortcuts wouldn’t work after giving the articles view focus has been fixed
- Articles view: YouTube videos could end up small. Fixed.
- Articles view: fixed a bug scaling images to fit in the view
- Fixed the space bar when running on Catalina. It wouldn’t advance to the next unread — now it will. (This was due to a change in JavaScript in Catalina)
- Fixed a crashing bug having to do with async database fetches for the timeline
- Feedbin syncing: fixed a bug where renaming a tag on the Feedbin site would result in feeds in NNW ending up at the top level
- Help menu: fixed the expired Slack link
