ANN: Pan "No, Lamb Dear, Give Panther the Narky Poon"

Pan, "No, Lamb Dear, Give Panther the Narky Poon", has been released.
It can be found at
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.


        This version fixes a couple of crashes, a bug that made it hard
        to find new articles without expanding all the threads, and a
        couple of build errors reported against the last beta.

        A revision number of >= 90 is used to flag this release as a beta
        without confusing RPM's feeble brain with a name like "0.11.2-pre1".

What's New in


        * Slightly faster download and display of articles.

        BUG FIXES

        * Fixed bug that caused Pan to crash when reading an article.

        * Fix the "group->_article == NULL" assertion failure when
          loading a group.

        * Fixed bug that made it appear that, when retrying a download
          after the first try failed or the user went offline, all the
          articles in the task needed to be re-downloaded.  Pan no longer
          looks like it's re-downloading articles it already has.

        * Fixed bug that improperly hid new replies that were in
          collapsed threads.  The top-level articles should have been
          showed in boldface to indicate that the thread had new replies.

        * Fixed gmime build errors that occurred on platforms that need
          to include alloca.h.  Thanks to Alan Young for reporting this.

        * Fixed bug that caused the first group to be loaded during a Pan
          session to not be filtered properly.  Thanks to Douglas Bollinger,
          Dan Hensley, and others for reporting this.
