Awasu 1.0.2 has been released. This is a beta release. Some features may not be complete and the software may be unstable. Install at your own risk! You may need to do some basic computer maintenance tasks to get this release to run.
Channel hooks are the most powerful feature of Awasu and transform it from being just another RSS reader to something much more profound ... Browsers such as Internet Explorer or Mozilla and every other RSS reader available today are passive tools - they simply display the data as it arrives without understanding anything about what they are showing. Channel hooks allow Awasu to monitor information as it comes in, analyze it and respond to it.
There are plenty of other not-so-profound features as well :-). In particular, if you use a PDA to read your news offline, you will want to check this release out.
