Which somewhat mature, moderately used RSS readers are under the most active development?

There's kind of an "at least" somewhat implied in there :-)

NetNewsWire, Shrook, and PulpFiction have been delivering competitive updates back and forth for the last year. You didn't specify a platform; those are all for OS X.

Are you asking which RSS reader is the best?

sage (formerly 'rss reader panel'). active development and works quite well in firefox on lunix, osx, and winders, in my experience.

SharpReader has a pretty decent user base and a pretty active release history.

My two favorite client-side RSS readers are Sharpreader (free), mentioned above, and FeedDemon, by Nick Bradbury (not free). Both are actively being developed, AFAIK. I used both on and off for awhile, but I've now switched entirely to the server-side RSS reader Bloglines.

Is there anything in the works that will blend client/server-side rss readers? I find client side readers to be extremely functional, but its necessary that I am able to accurately track what I have read over multiple platforms in different locations. At one time it appeared that Shrook for OSx had this duality, but the web-interface seemed clunky/slow/and unreliable. Any thoughts of projects in the work? Current applications to fit the bill?
