The slrn newsreader / News: Recent posts

slrn 0.9.9 released

The last stable version of the slrn Usenet newsreader was released so long ago that I've forgotten how many years ago it was, but the new version was released yesterday.

slrn 0.9.9 has massively improved support for MIME, and a lot of bugfixes. For details, see changes.txt.

If you have questions, either contact a project member or post to the newsgroup.

slrn 1.0 is planned for the near future.

slrn released

Slrn (``S-Lang read news'') is a Usenet newsreader that runs in text mode on various Unix- and Unix-like operating systems (including Linux), Windows, OS/2, BeOS, MacOS X and VMS. It supports scoring rules to highlight, sort or kill articles to make reading news more efficient. Furthermore it is highly customizable, allows free key-bindings and can be extended using the S-Lang macro language. Offline reading is possible using either slrnpull (shipped with slrn) or a local newsserver like leafnode or INN. The new version of slrn finally has been released. It has an impressive list of changes, including the long-awaited true offline reading functionality. I also integrated a lot of patches and want to thank everyone who made a contribution.
