GRn 2.1a

GRn is Gadtools Read News, a Gadtools-based newsreader for the Amiga, running
Release 2.0 or above. Some special features are available on higher releases.

GRn supports locally stored news (via AmigaUUCP, C News, or NNTPxfer) and
NNTP in a variety of ways (AS225r2, AmiTCP 2.2 or above, DNet, AUW and direct
connection via serial.device or serial clone).

GRn 2.1a only has a single difference over GRn 2.1 -- it supports AmiTCP 4.0+.
Thanks go to Jarno Tapio Rajahalme <jraja at vipunen.hut.fi>, for providing the
requisite fix.

GRn 3.0 will be available commercially early in 1995.

GRn 2.1 is an update to GRn 2.0. Several new features have been added, and
several bugs have been fixed. Refer to GRn.guide for detailed information on
operating GRn. The file INSTALL tells you how to install GRn (sorry, Installer
script didn't happen).

Significant changes between GRn 2.0 and GRn 2.1:

    New Features:

	+ AmiTCP is now supported

	+ AUW is now supported

	+ ReplyPrefix configuration variable added

	+ GRnSaveDir configuration variable added

	+ MODEID=SCREENMODE argument added

	+ When GRn opens a Custom Screen, it now sets AutoScroll.

	+ New GRn icon

	+ Use the system busy pointer on v39 and up

	+ NOSCAN only applies to the scan at startup

	+ Add From: header to all news and mail created
	  (NOTE: this requires a fixed postnews for AmigaUUCP.)

	+ LAST=SUBSCRIBELAST argument added

	+ Keyboard shortcuts for the article list were added

	+ UserShells are now supported for all external programs (this
	  means they can be AmigaDOS scripts, AREXX programs, etc.)

	+ eXtract command added

	+ A Distribution header is no longer added by default, unless an
	  article being replied to had one

    Bug Fixes:

	+ serial.device input no longer busy-loops

	+ NNTP articles are not retrieved a second time for Save, Print,
	  Reply, Forward, etc.

	+ You may now "Mark" an article as UNREAD, even when it is the
	  only article in a newsgroup

	+ GRn now works better with tin

	+ Refresh of borders on v37 and v38 is complete

	+ The proper detailpen is now used in the subscription window

	+ Requestors are now draggable

	+ Subject/From headers over 512 characters will no longer cause
	  GRn to write over memory it does not own

	+ No longer allow cancellation of arbitrary articles

	+ Properly close socket.library if NNTP server connection failed.

	+ Large fonts will not mess up the subscribe window any longer

	+ The last article in a newsgroup may be marked as unread.

	+ On v39 and above, mouse and keyboard movements are dealt with
	  correctly, when both are used to adjust a listview.

	+ "Followup-To: poster" is now honored

	+ The HOSTNAME argument is no longer treated as a synonym for the
	  NNTPSERVER argument.
