I fired up Sauce Reader as usual this morning and to my horror in the Sauce Reader Weblog I found that Synop has closed for business
and that the Sauce Reader product and source code (both versions 1.x and 2.x) are up for sale
"The Sauce Reader product and source code are for sale!
Synop has closed for business. We're very
proud of all we've accomplished both internally and by working closely with our
customers and users. We appreciate all your interest and support."
If I had any kind of money I'd buy it in a flash. Sauce Reader is an
excellent RSS reader that I haev always used even when trying out
something new. The re-write to version 2 was a great step forward in
performance and stability (even if it did switch from C# .NET to
Delphi) and it is a great shame that they have not been able to sustain
I truly hope that someone can buy the product and continue to take it forward.
