Pan 0.10.0.91, "Satin and Hilde", has been released. It can be found at
http://pan.rebelbase.com/.

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
        http://pan.rebelbase.com/features.html for the rest of the sales
        pitch.

About 0.10.0.91

        The improbable version number is to indicate that this is a beta
        between 0.10.0 and 0.10.1, without confusing RPM with sane,
        human-readable phrases like "beta".  Better solutions are
        welcomed. :)

Changes between 0.10.0 and 0.10.0.91

    NEW FEATURES

        * No longer needs gtkhtml (which had a large list of
          prerequisites): to display hotlinks and attached pictures.

        * Added a second quote color for color-coding
          >> One reply
          > from another.

    UPDATES

        * Uses much less memory when decoding attachments.

    BUG FIXES

        * Fixed crash when importing an empty .newsrc file,
          including on startup.  Thanks to Derek Poon for first reporting
          this problem and submitting a fix.

        * Fixed crashes in the Task Manager dialog.

        * Fixed crashes in the progressbar when using pixmapped
          Gtk+ themes.

        * Fix problem with the queue running away with the CPU
          in 0.10.0.90.  Thanks to Chris Vance for reporting this bug and
          submitting a fix.

        * Fixed problem with date header not being sent when
          sending mail from Pan.  Thanks to Derek Poon for reporting this
          problem and submitting a fix.

        * Fix lockup from having a double-mutex thread lock
          when we can't load the user-specified font for the articlelist.
          Thanks to Thomas K. Gamble for reporting this bug.

        * Build fixes.
