ANN: Pan "Reverse the Polarity of the Neutron Flow"

Pan, "Reverse the Polarity of the Neutron Flow", 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 adds support for the yEnc encoding scheme. We've also
        incorporated a number of usability suggestions, along with a handful 
        of bug fixes.

        A revision number of >= 90 is used to flag this release as a beta
        without confusing RPM's feeble brain with a name like "0.11.3-pre1".

What's New in


        *  Added support for decoding yenc-encoded attachments!  Thanks to
           Gabi Davar and Jeff Stedfast for contributing code and debugging
           to this effort. (70368, 71330)


	* The 'Download Articles' dialog now switches the articlelist to 
          the group when the headers have been downloaded. Since this dialog 
          is mostly used to sample a (potentially large) group, this seems 
          the more intuitive approach. Thanks to Himanshu J. Gohel for 
          suggesting this. (66510)

        * Added Message-ID to Find Article's search criteria. Thanks to 
          Pascal Valois for suggesting this. (68332)

        * If an article no longer exists on the news server, tasks to read
          that article are now automatically removed from the Task Manager.
          Thanks to John Mellor for reporting this. (71992)

        BUG FIXES

        * Fixed bug that caused multi-part binary posts with variable-length
          segment number to be seen as incomplete. Thanks to Craig Orsinger
          for reporting this. (71647)

        * Fixed 0.11.2 bug where Pan could crash when a confirmation dialog
          was needed to confirm sending a message with issues. (71440)

        * Fixed 0.11.2 bug that could cause the article count not to be reset
          to zero when the group was empties. Thanks to Craig Orgsinger for
          reporting this. (71645)

        * Fixed long-standing bug that made it impossible to cancel an unread 
          message. Thanks to Kerstin Rohlfs for leading me to this bug. (64287)

        * Fixed UI bug in the message composer that caused Ctrl-space to send 
          the message. (71352)

        * When editing an existing server profile, the server name is now 
          read-only.  Thanks to Ned Boddy for reporting this bug.  (72432)

        * Better handling for the case where the 'Followup-To:' header
          contains an email address. Thanks to Mike Brodbelt for suggesting
          this.  (72608)

        * Fixed UI bug in the Preferences that caused the <OK> button not
          to activate when directly various fields. Thanks to John Mellor
          for reporting this. (73180)

        * The Profile Editor now rejects double-quotes in the author's real 
          name. Thanks to Martin Bruchanov for reporting this.

        * Fixed a crash that occurred when sending mail from a system that 
          didn't have a resolvable hostname. Thanks to T'aZ for reporting 
          this bug. (74129)
