Pan 0.11.93, "Milo Conducts the Dawn", 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 0.11.93

        This is the fourth beta of 0.12.0, which began life as a gtk2
        port of Pan 0.11.3, but has sprouted new features and usability
        improvements along the way.

Changes Since 0.11.92


        * Added support for message/partial mime content headers.
          Thanks to T. Gamble for requesting this. (#80715)


        * Tweak to `space reading': if a user selects an article without
          reading it, pressing the space key will then display that
          selected article.  Likewise if a group selection changes,
          pressing the space key will jump to the selected group.  Thanks to
          William Wu for reporting issues that led to this feature. (#81868)

        * Some menu cleanups: `space reading' is back in; a shortcut for
          `delete last task' has been added, and the menus are now
          compliant with the GNOME Human Interface Guidelines.

        * Decoding attachments takes less memory and much less disk space.

        * Minor speed improvements in startup and article reading.


        * Fixed 0.11.91 bug that made tabbed-mode reading difficult to
          use.  Thanks to Roman Moeller for reporting this bug. (#81726)

        * Fixed 0.11.90 problem that caused the text pane to scroll to the
          bottom of long articles when reading them in 'zoom' mode.
          Thanks to Kang Jeong Hee for reporting this bug.  (#76110)

        * Fixed 0.11.90 bug that made the article pane not take the
          users' color preferences seriously. (#80739)

        * Fixed a couple of minor 0.11.3 memory leaks.

        * Fixed long-standing article-cache-never-shrinks bug.
          Thanks to Bernard Debreil for reporting this bug. (#81464)
