Pan 0.11.91 "Brutus Cyclops Dull" 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 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 0.11.91

        This is the second beta of 0.12.0, which is a port of Pan 0.11.3
        to gtk2.  The port adds better charset/internationalization support,
        fewer library dependencies than 0.11.3, usability improvements,
        and bugfixes.

Changes Since 0.11.90


        * Added a user-configurable per-group default charset to use
          when converting messages that don't specify their own charset.
          In 0.11.90 Pan didn't know how to convert messages that didn't
          specify a charset and just left the message blank.
          Thanks for Frank Van Damme for reporting this. (#79275)

        * Added new preferences option to get new headers from
          subscribed groups automatically when starting Pan.


        * Call bind_textdomain_codeset() when starting Pan to set the
          output codeset for message translations.
          Thanks to Kang JeongHee for suggesting this. (#78158)

        * Refined `rot13 article body' to `rot13 selected text', since
          most rot13ed text is just punchlines or a spoiler paragraph,
          rather than an entire body.  Thanks to jim at cosx for
          suggesting this. (#72015)

        * Added `%g' and `%G' substitution fields into the download
          directory path.  If used these will be replaced with
 and the/group/name/ when saving articles.
          Thanks to Hans Verkuil for this suggestion. (#75591)


        * The single-keystroke hotkeys (like 'n' for next article), which
          disappeared in 0.11.90, are back! (#75478) (#78528)

        * Fixed major memory leak in 0.11.90 that didn't free pictures
          that were read inline.

        * Fix bug that kept 0.11.90 from compiling on platforms that
          can't take a NULL in a function expecting a va_list.
          Thanks to for reporting this bug.  (#78112)

        * Fixed 0.11.90 bug that didn't clear out the previous contents of
          the compose window before adding the contents from the external
          editor.  Thanks to Kang JeongHee for suggesting this. (#74885)

        * Fixed 0.11.90 bug that caused filtering on new/unread/old to
          not work properly.  Thanks to Philip Langdale for reporting
          this bug. (#79669)

        * Fixed 0.11.90 bug that didn't convert text to UTF-8 before
          displaying it in the Task Manager window.  Thanks to
          Kang Jeong-Hee for reporting this bug.  (#80004)

        * Synchronize with 0.11.3 bugfixes that were made after 0.11.90
          was released. (#73179) (#62909) (#78287)

        * Fixed 0.11.2 bug that didn't show HTML messages.  We still don't
          parse the HTML -- HTML has no place in Usenet -- but we at least
          show the message now.  Thanks to Himanshu J. Gohel for reporting
          this bug.  (#78723)

        * If an article was selected (for, say, a context menu operation),
          then clicking on the same article again wouldn't download & display
          the article; you had to double-click, which was nonintuitive.
          Now clicking on an already-selected article will download & display
          the article.  Thanks to Dan Hensley for reporting this bug. (#78557)

        * Other miscellaneous changes (#79377) (#69390)
