The new year is upon us and with it, a special gift for XBit, a brand new bug! It seems the code that handles downloading new issues from the TidBITS FTP server had a slight oversight in it. The result, no new issues for you! That such a simple bug could so impair the functionality! Anyway, the application has been updated and downloading should work once again.
On the topic of XBit, I’ve been playing with a handful of ideas for the next major release. Nothing has been hammered out yet but it will probably be Panther only.
