Branch: CURRENT, Version: 0.147nb3, Package name: pan-0.147nb3, Maintainer: rhialto

Pan is a Newsreader for Gnome whose goal is to be easy to use and
functional enough for beginners and advanced users alike. It has the
basic features of threading, reading, filtering, posting, and offline
reading, and also has a number of features for power users and
alt.binaries fans.

It's the only Unix newsreader to get a perfect score on the Good
Net-Keeping Seal of Approval evalutions.

Log message:
news/pan: Use a proper release tarball rather than a gitlab snapshot.

It also has the autotools files and po/* files already created, and
some files used for testing are left out.

Upstream release email from Dominique Dumont <domi.dumont@free.fr>:

After a 2 years hiatus, I'm happy to announce Pan version 0.147.

Yes, that's right, Pan has a new maintainer. I've been maintaining Pan package
for Debian for almost 10 years, and I did not want this software to die, so
I've taken over upstream maintenance.

As I've not seriously programmed in C++ for about 20 years, I'll heavily rely
on users' participation. So please, keep the MR coming, I'll strive to review,
provide feedback and hopefully merge them. :-)

Back to Pan, this new release contains mostly bug fixes so pan can be compiled
on major Linux distributions.

In the next releases, we'll try to get rid of gmime2 code. Please reach out to
pan-devel [at] nongnu.org if this may cause issues.

Note that I have not (yet?) the credentials to update Pan website on
rebelbase.com. So the announce and tarball will not be propagated there soon
(if ever).

You can get Pan 0,147 release tarball on Gnome's gitlab:

- https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/pan/-/tags/PAN_0_147

The detailed release log is there:
- https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/pan/-/blob/master/NEWS

This release still has known bugs:
- compilation with gtk3 raises a lot of warning
- message signing is broken

All the best

Dominique (aka dod at Debian)
