Pan "Cherry Blossoms Fall"


        Features stay, unchanged
        While bugs fade into the mist
        Cherry blossoms fall.

What is Pan?

        Pan is a newsreader, loosely based on Agent and Gravity, which
        attempts to be pleasant to use for new and advanced users alike.
        It has all the typical features found in newsreaders and also
        supports offline newsreading, article filtering, multiple connections,
        and a number of extra 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.  See for the rest of the
        sales pitch.

What's New in


        * Now also saving the group's 'Which Articles to Show' filter setting.
          Thanks to Uli Wachowitz for suggesting this feature.

        * Slightly faster downloading of article headers.

        * If some bozo includes a windows pathname in the filename of an
          attachment, strip out that pathname.


        * Fixed bug that caused Pan to crash on startup if the newsrc file
          exists, but Pan is unable to read this (e.g. permissions). Thanks 
          to Joris Lambrecht for reporting this bug.

        * Fixed bug that caused the CPU to peg at 100% when the user
          hit the "empty group" button.

        * Fixed bug that could interfere with posting new articles.

        * Fixed bug that caused filtering on complete/incomplete multiparts to
          be inaccurate.

        * Fixed bug that caused non-visible filters to reappear on the filter
          menu when Pan was restarted. Thanks to Douglas Bollinger for reporting
          this bug.

        * Mac OS X build fixes.  Thanks to Max Horn for reporting these and
          providing patches.
