Subject: Creating weekly digests or other digests of batched posts
Getting an email after every post can be overwhelming.  Thus, there is a real demand for a digest of posts.  Subscribe2 offters such a digest--both a daily and weekly digest.  But the interface for end users (as opposed to administrators) to implement the digest is about as user unfriendly as can be imagined.  Basically, the weekly digest was only implemented under the settings options.  For the users--your subscriptions and registration screens, the default is either a daily digest (for users--your subscriptions) of ambiguity (the registration screen) so users don't know what they're committing to.  Anyway, if you could incorporate a weekly or biweekly digest option in version 2.0 of your plugin, I think a lot of people might find that useful.

Unfortunately I haven't found much time to develop this. Mainly because other things were more Important. Chances are good, that there will be a working PN 2.0 around new year - but no promises. ;)

Subject: YES!  A weekly digest would be wonderful
I run a blog with only pages, no posts.  Up until now I was updating the blog during the course of the week, then once a week I sent an email to all readers with a note to visit the blog for news.

A weekly digest of notifications would be perfect for this, because I have some 20 pages, and readers find it a little overwhelming to get an individual notification for each page I update.

I have version 1.2.32 installed - has there been an update since?
