Dec 11, 2002 - New Release: - The "More Magic" Switch

What is Pan?

Pan is a newsreader which attempts to be pleasing to both new and experienced users. In addition to the standard newsreader features, Pan also supports yEnc, offline newsreading, article filtering, multiple connections, and more features for power users and alt.binaries fans.

It's also the only Unix newsreader to get a perfect score on the Good Net-Keeping Seal of Approval evaluations.


This release contains another round of small bugfixes.
Test 'em out and bang on it so that we can release 0.13.3 soon. :)
