jNews Core (non-commerical) is ideal for providing essential functionality, whilst providing a good preview of our recommendation to upgrade to jNews Plus (for advanced templating features).
And best of all is that it simply upgrades "in-place" without having to uninstall-then-reinstall.
On the rare occasions we have issues/questions, their online support answers promptly and accurately... usually having the solution immediately ready.
The only negative comment that I have is a common one here... no notifications when updates are available.
Easily solved by a regular weekly check of the Joobi website.
