Newsbin 6.51 Beta 1 Released

Did you download the latest Newsbin Pro 6.50 release when it came out last month?  If not you definitely should.  It includes a number of new features.  We especially like the watch feature and the ability to prioritize multiple news servers.  In the new beta Newsbin addresses some bugs found after the final release of 6.50,  As always registered users have full access to all beta versions.  Visit the Nesbin beta page for the download.
