For XPN 1.2.6Publisher's description


XPN is a Internet software developed by Antonio Caputo. After our trial and test, the software is proved to be official, secure and free. Here is the official description for XPN:

Edit by Brothersoft: With XPN you can read/write articles on the Usenet with a good MIME support (better than some well known newsreaders).
XPN can operate with all the most Diffuse charset starting from US-ASCII to UTF-8. When you edit an article XPN automatically chooses the best charset, however is always possible to override this choice.


* On-Line/Off-Line Mode
XPN has been for a long time an on-line only NewsReader, Now it's changed. Starting from 0.2.5 I added the read articles storing, and starting from 0.4.0 you are able to download the whole bodies with the headers, or to Mark for retrieval some articles and then download their bodies.

* MIME Standards
With XPN you can read articles coded with quoted-printable, 7bit or 8bit. XPN is also full UTF-8 compliant, you can read and send aritcles with the UTF-8 charset.

* Scoring
It's possible to create scoring rules (like the Hamster's ones but simpler) in order to assign a score to articles. This rule can act on this fields: From, Subject, Date, Message-ID, References, Age, Xpost, Xref, Bytes and Lines
You may also create action rules. These rules trigger an action to be applied on to the article. Possible actions are !kill (delete the article), !markread, !watch, !ignore and so on.
Action rules act on the same fields listed above plus a new field named Score, in FACT action rules are always applied after scoring rules.

* Multiple Layouts
There are twentyfour different possible layouts for the main window. Probably in the future I will add more of them. You can also zoom one of the tree panes.

* Colors
Articles are shown with different colors for text, quoted text and signs. You can change this colors.

* Random TagLines
It's possible to automatically add a random tagline in your articles. TagLines are picked from a textfile that you can customize.

* X-Face
Starting from 0.4.5 XPN support decoding of the X-Face and Face headers.

* Internationalization
Starting from 0.4.5 release XPN supports multiple language
you can free download XPN 1.2.6 now.
