WinVN's list of features is constantly changing. Usually, new features are
added. Occasionally, features will be taken away - like word wrap - but this is rare 8^).
WinVN allows you to read UseNet News on-line, via NNTP, and to compose and send replies via news or email (SMTP or MAPI).
For a complete list of features and configuration options, see the on-line help, or the printed user manual. Note that even these sources can be out of date, as there is usually a lag between the implementation of a feature, and the point where someone gets around to documenting it.
Quickly, here are the whiz-bang features:
o Multi-Window, point and click user interface.
o Threading capability
o Integrated mail (MAPI or SMTP)
o Background operation during list/article retrieval (useful for SLIP/PPP users)
o Powerful encoding/decoding capability (useful for those binaries newsgroups)
o It's free.
o The source code is readily available.
o Fully configurable fonts and colors in the various windows
o Nicely formatted article printing
o Ability to connect/disconnect to news server at will.
o Many, many options and feature settings
Due to the fast pace of WinVN's development, you should always check up on the latest version available. See 'How can I keep up-to-date on WinVN's progress?'. Sometimes a feature that you'd like to see has already been implemented, but you're not seeing it because you're using version 0.82, which is over a year old (as of Sep. 94, we are currently at version 0.92.6 - please check for a newer version)
