FeedDemon version 2.6 has just been released, and in a surprise move, it's now free. Also free are the rest of NewsGator's consumer RSS readers, along with online services including feed synchronization.
As a long-time fan and paying customer of FeedDemon, I was a bit skeptical at first as to why NewsGator would do this. Evidently anticipating this kind of reaction among its existing customer base, FeedDemon's creator Nick Bradbury addressed some of the reasons for the change in his blog post yesterday, as did NewsGator's Greg Reinacker in his blog post. Best to read these for yourself and get the answers straight from the source.
FeedDemon 2.6 for Windows is available for download from www.newsgator.com/Individuals/FeedDemon/.
