Just built and installed 0.129 and overall I like it a lot - thanks for all the hard work, Charles!

I've noticed a few odd things, though:

1. Sometimes when I pull down new messages, I see the new message header count in the newsgroup list, and if I go through all of the messages that are unread, Pan tells me that there is still an unread message. I've assigned a hotkey to the "read/unread" item in the header view menu, and if I show all messages and then immediately show the unread messages, the remaining unread messages show up. There doesn't seem to be a pattern to this behaviour, at least not that I can see.

Please file a new bugzilla ticket for this -- and for most of the other
items on this list.  I'll never be able to keep track of them otherwise.

2. It would be nice if it were possible to set a posting profile on multiple groups at the same time.

I'd want to see more votes for this before I'd write it.  I could see
the "group preferences" dialog supporting multiple groups at once,
though if the groups started off with different settings, what would
the dialog show when it first popped up?

3. It would also be nice if the group list could be sorted by news server - I'm still getting used to having all the groups in one list, but having groups from one news server interspersed with groups from another news server causes me to have to shift gears more often than I otherwise would.

This isn't likely to happen, though there is a ticket for being
able to "group" the newsgroups into clusters, which would serve
a similar purpose.

4. I like how the posting profile is determined automatically most of the time - it would be nice, though, if a posting profile could be used on multiple servers - I use the same name and fake e-mail address on two servers, and have two profiles set up for that purpose now. Not a big deal now that it's set up, but it took a minute to figure out why I was receiving an error while trying to post. Maybe the posting server could be set to use the server hosting the group (or a primary server hosting the group if you're subscribed to multiple servers holding the same group) with the posting profile selection being able to override what Pan figures out on its own.

5. It would be helpful if the scores for a thread were calculated and that value displayed when a thread is not expanded.

It's coded to do that, unless it's broken recently.
Please file a ticket for this too.

6. I also have to say I preferred in 0.14.x when the entire line in the header pane was colour coded, rather than just the score column.

File a ticket. :)
