Pan 0.11.93

Pan 0.11.93, "Milo Conducts the Dawn", 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
        and a number of extra features for power users and alt.binaries

        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 0.11.93

        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, bug fixes, and
        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
          William Wu for reporting issues that led to this feature.

        * 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)


MrProject 0.5.92

MrProject 0.5.92 - the "I feel lucky" release

This is the third GNOME 2 based MrProject release and we are proud to 
announce that we now have custom properties for tasks included. We also
took the liberty of including a new view, the Task View which is a tree
view of all of the tasks without the Gantt chart at the side. This view 
gives you a better view of the different data fields of a task.

This is NOT a stable release of MrProject, and those of you that are
using MrProject should not switch over to this version yet.

What is MrProject anyway? 

MrProject is a project management application under development, that
will help build project plans and track the progress of a project.

The development of MrProject is led by CodeFactory as a free software
project, and all code is licensed under the GNU General Public

More information is available at our pretty out-of-date homepage:

Sounds interesting, where do you keep them?

- "Them what?"
- "The screenshots?"
- "Ah, of course, look at 

Ok, I really want to test, where do I get it?

We have splitted up MrProject into two packages, libmrproject and

You can download the packages from:

Hmm, it looks nice and everything, but...

requests. Currently this is done at:
