Pan 0.13.0

Pan 0.13.0, `The Whole Remains Beautiful', has been released.
It can be found at .

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 for the rest of the
   sales pitch.

About 0.13.0

   This version of Pan adds a smaller memory footprint, 
   improved i18n, the ability to restore tasks that were queued
   when your last Pan session ended, support for random signatures
   a la `fortune', a new toolbar, optional spellchecking,
   and many bugfixes.

   There have also been five beta releases to shake out any new bugs.

What's New Since 0.12.1

   * Added a toolbar for frequently-used commands.
   * Added the ability to restore, on startup, tasks that were
     queued when your last Pan session ended. (#81626)
   * Added optional spellchecking in the compose window. (Michael Alger)
   * Executable signature files (like fortune) now supported.
   * Restored single-click filtering that's been gone since 0.9.7.

   * Faster startup time when Pan's article cache is large.
     (Bas Mevissen, #89455)
   * Eliminated the memory penalty for having tasks queued which
     operated on newsgroups other than the current newsgroup.
     This should be especially helpful on alt.binaries groups.
   * Flagging messages now works across all newsgroups.  Articles
     could previously only be flagged for the current newsgroup.
   * Pan now handles https:// URLs in the text pane correctly.
     (Adam Huffman, #89293)

   * Fixed 0.12.0 bug that broke `add task to front of queue'.
     (Alen Williams, #88106)
   * Fixed 0.12.0 bug that crashed on editing filters.
     (Carl Hudkins, #86215)
   * Fixed 0.12.0 bug that didn't check the user's `get new
     headers in subscribed groups on startup' setting.
     (Brian Morrison, #88255)
   * Fixed 0.12.0 bug that caused Pan to crash on some URL mouseovers.
     (DevilKin, #89584)
   * Fixed minor 0.12.0 shortcut bug in the Feedback window.
     (Philippe Gramoull)
   * Fixed 0.12.0 bug that dropped the ability to queue up a handful
     of binary picture articles by pressing the space key repeatedly. 
     (Alan, #88969)
   * Fixed 0.12.0 bug that mishandled improperly-encoded headers.
     (Toivo Leedjarv, #87065)
   * Fixed 0.12.0 bug that didn't handle editors without UTF8 support.
     (Martin Tomasek, #85289)
   * Added ctrl-return back as the shortcut for `send now'.
     Looks like this got dropped by accident in 0.12.0.
     (Laurent Duperval, #88386)
   * Fixed minor 0.11.90 bug.  When the user clicks on a line,
     the radiobutton on that line is supposed to select itself.
   * Fixed obscure 0.9.x bug in marking groups articles read
     that could munge the unread article count.
   * Fixed 0.9.3 bug that failed to notice `disk full' errors
     when decoding attachments.  Pan now fails the decode task
     the user can free up some space and requeue the task without
     having to re-download the article bodies.
     (Wolfgang Karall, #79993)
   * Fix 0.8.1b3 bug that forced folder names to be lowercase.
     (Himanshu Gohel, #74892)
   * Fixed old bug that locked up Pan when parsing an empty article.
     (William MacCracken, #89260)
   * Now properly threads multiparts with subjects like
     `some text (1of2).part01.P01 (1/45)'.
     (Roman Moeller, #82751)
   * About a dozen minor memory leaks fixed. 
     (Valgrind :)
