This is Pan, a powerful and user-friendly USENET newsreader for GTK+. The latest info and versions of Pan can always be found at <http://pan.rebelbase.com/>. REQUIREMENTS Pan requires these libraries: * GTK+ 2.16.0 or higher <http://www.gtk.org/> * gmime 2.4.0 or higher <http://spruce.sourceforge.net/gmime/> Spellchecking requires the following library: * gtkspell 2.0.7 or higher <http://gtkspell.sourceforge.net> Most Linux distributions already have these; they can also be downloaded from their home pages. THE SALES PITCH Pan is good for Reading News. * Pan is the only Unix newsreader to score 100% on the Good Net-Keeping Seal of Approval newsreader evaluations. * Pan has keyboard bindings for mouse-free newsreading. * Basic newsreader features, such as reading and writing news, threading articles, and replying via email, are supported. * Articles can be sorted by author, date, subject, or the number of unread children in the thread. * Multiple connections are supported, so articles can be read while binaries are downloading. * Articles can be filtered by regular expression matching, read/unread state, binary/text, etc. * Works well as an offline reader. * Posts can be queued until you want to go online, and can be re-edited at any point before they're sent. * Pan saves your posted messages in a folder for future reference. * A flexible rules system allows you to delete, hide, download, or notify you of, etc. articles that match a subject, or are posted by a particular user, and so on. * Groups can be filtered by regular expression matching subscribed/new/all, etc. Pan is good for Downloading Binaries. * Attached images can be shown inline. * Pan can download and thread articles as quickly as bandwidth allows. * uuencoded, mime, and yEnc attachments are all supported. * A task manager lets you reorder, cancel, and resubmit download tasks. * Multiple connections are supported, so many binaries can be downloaded simultaneously. * Multipart articles are automatically grouped together. * Non-binary, incomplete multipart, and saved messages can be filtered out of the article list.
