First proper message to this newsgroup, so please be polite and gentle.
I have been using the same newsreader for a very long time. I am still using
KDE 3.1 (with Knode 0.7.2), which I believe dates back to 2002 or 2003. Can
any KNode buff please tell me what the latest of KNode has to offer? I have
KDE 3.4 installed at home, so I could access that newer version of KNode,
via SSH, having migrated all the settings. Here are the reasons for my
* KNode appears admirably (almost unbelievably) stable over here on
KDE 3.1. I rarely hear about similar experiences in the other
newsgroups where KNode is sometimes described as "fragile".
* I seem to have all functionality available -- anything I have
ever come across anyway, including good filtering. The only other
application I ever lust for is Pan, but I don't know it reasonably
well. I know it from afar.
I guess what it all boils down to is the following question. Should I
consider leaving a fully-functional and stable KNode 0.7.2 in favour of a
different reader or a newer version of KNode? Is there any compelling reason
for doing so? I post over 1,000 messages a month, so investment of time in
transition (setup, learning) is not an issue. I am very willing to explore.
Many thanks in advance,
