Headline Viewer FAQ
- Is This Free, Shareware, or what?
This program is shareware; the registration fee (once it reaches version 1.0) will be $25. Registration will not be required until the program reaches version 1.0, sometime in the year 2005. Skin authors are eligible for free registration.
- What about updates?
Check back here every couple of days. Also, the program will automatically check for upgrades every 48 hours (its a beta and it changes regularly). You can turn this feature off in the Settings page. If you do not want automatic updates, send email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send you a message when ever a new version is ready.
- What new features are planned for upcoming versions?
