    XPN - X Python Newsreader is a multiplatform newsreader with unicode
    support. It is written in Python+PyGTK.
    It has features like scoring/actions, XFace and Face decoding and random
    taglines.

    You can find it on:

    Changes in this release:

    * added X-Face support (thanks to Andrew Taylor for helping
    me in the translation of his javascript port of uncompface, and to
    Alien321 for telling me about the Mnheny Thunderbird extension)
    * added Face support (note you can't send Faces, because this is a non
    standard header).
    * added i18n support with gettext. At the moment the supported languages
    are Italian and French (thanks to Guillaume Bedot for the code and for
    the French translation)
    * rewrote NNTP connection handler as an externale module. Now it should
    be more readable and more reliable.
    * some refinements in watch/ignore/mark features
    * fixed some quirk behaviours in the wrapping feature. Now the live
    wrapping should work better.
    * added Subject based threading, it's used when References based
    threading fails
    * now XPN can generate Message-IDs, and you can also use a personal
    [pseudo-]FQDN.
    * added command line options, now you can run xpn with "-d" option and
    it will store articles and configs files inside a .xpn directory in
    your home-dir. (thanks to Guillaume Bedot for the code)
    * added a simple outbox, you can store your articles in it when you are
    offline and then send them when you estabilish the connection with the
    server.
    * now XPN should autmatically repair its database when it gets
    corrupted.
    * some fixes for Supersede/Cancel features
    * now you can select multiple row in groups list. So for instance you
    can subscribe more than one group with one click, or you can use the
    new "download new headers in selected groups".
    * now you can use a different From field when you reply by mail
    * fixed a bug introduced in the previous release that caused a crash
    trying to use a NickName with extended characters in it.
