Pan 0.13.2.90, ``Hexapodia as the key insight''
has been released. It can be found at http://pan.rebelbase.com/ .
What is Pan?
Pan is a newsreader which attempts to be pleasing to both
new users and power users. In addition to the standard newsreader
features, Pan also supports yEnc, offline newsreading,
article filtering, multiple connections, and more 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/ for the whole sales pitch.
This release is a happy group of bugfixes and speed tweaks.
A revision number of 90 or higher is used to flag this release as
a beta without confusing RPM with a name like ``0.13.2-pre1''.

(89281, Christian Lohmaier)
* Fixed bug that broke the bozo and spam filters on 8bit data.
* Handle slightly-broken Message-ID headers more gracefully.
Message-IDs with trailing spaces broke space reading in 0.13.0.

* Fixed a half-dozen small memory leaks.
* Lots of speed tweaks, particularly in refreshing the header pane.
* Pan now retains custom accelerator keys (shortcuts) between

mark-all-read buttons are at the bottom next to `delete group',
less likely to get clicked by accident.
* Modify the header pane to clear the display when the top row in
the header pane, which shows the group's name, is selected.
(89959, Bas Mevissen)
* Made the new user dialog's welcome message more i18n-friendly.
(98334, Christian Rose)

similar strings elsewhere in Pan.
