Notes

Newsbase appears to have ceased development. The latest known version is 0.70-beta-2 (26 Oct 2001). Setup is somewhat involved, and the more current RISC OS newsreaders generally provide their own article management tools, which means Newsbase is no longer needed. For example, Messenger can either use Newsbase, or its own built-in MsgServe email and news database.
