ANN: Pan "Joshu's Dog"

Pan, "Joshu's Dog", 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 has a handful of important crash fixes and
        plugged memory leaks.  It also adds an option to expand all
        threads by default when entering a newsgroup.

        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".

          context menu in the article pane.  Thanks to Devin Carraway
          for reporting this bug. (#69170)
