Pan 0.12.91, "If you were in the moccasins of Peter Pigeonhole",
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 yEnc, 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.

About 0.12.91

        This version adds support for random signatures and
        fixes many serious 0.12.90 bugs.

        A revision number of >= 91 is used to flag this release as a beta
        without confusing RPM with a name like "0.13.0-pre2".
