XPN (X Python Newsreader) is a graphical newsreader written in Python with the GTK+ toolkit.XPN is distributed with the GPL licence, you will find a copy of the licence inside the XPN archive.An interesting characteristic of XPN is the complete portability. I use it a lot on Linux and Windows, however XPN should work wherever Python and GTK+2 work.On this page you'll find information about the old GTK+1.2 version.On-Line/Off-Line ModeXPN 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.Note that the download is a bit slow because I haven't yet optimized this code, so the better way to use XPN is still with a local news-server, or if you have a DSL connection, directly online.MIME StandardsWith 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.Outgoing articles are coded with the best charset, however you can always override this choice.ScoringIt'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 LinesYou 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 LayoutsThere 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.ColorsArticles are shown with different colors for text, quoted text and signs. You can change this colors.Random TagLinesIt's possible to automatically add a random tagline in your articles. TagLines are picked from a textfile that you can customize.X-FaceStarting from 0.4.5 XPN support decoding of the X-Face and Face headers. Thanks to Andrew Taylor (author of a javascript implementation of uncompface) for helping me in translating it's module.
