    Release Notes: This release allows you to manually set column sizes, columns order, and sort order, and settings are remembered between sessions. Decoding of articles can be canceled and shows a progress percentage. A bug with the headers date which occurred when using localized distributions has been fixed. Window size is now remembered correctly even if the window has been maximized.

            The BEST!
            klibido is hands down the best open source newsreader. It is nearly perfect, the only thing it really lacks is the ability to move selected items in the download queue to the bottom (which you can work around by selecting everything else and moving to the top, but this would definitely be nice to have).

            It is also incredibly STABLE compared to other comparable projects even when faced with incredibly large numbers of groups or messages in a group, do not let the low version number fool you. The few times it has crashed on me, the queue contents were automatically saved and the program asks if they should be requeued.

            I cannot say enough good things about this program, highly recommended.
