I build Emacs from git source. It has Gnus 5.13.

Gmane is a mailing list to news gateway. Most Emacs related group are
hosted here.

As for two groups you mentioned, you can use It's a free
Chinese news server carrying many groups, including two groups you
mentioned. And posting is allowed.

You can use sites like to find news servers carrying
your groups, and compare the speed.

I use leafnode (local news server) to connect to news servers. It's must
faster to read with Gnus. Another benefit is I can archive messages in
my computer for easy access, esp. easy searching. 

Most news servers (maybe all except for Gamen?) have retention not so
long, so you can read only recent messages. If you need to dig something
in the history, you need to use web like Goole groups (only if they are
archived). I'd rather archive them in my own box.
