Pronews newsreader updated

From Trevor H. (author of Pronews):
I'm pleased to announce the release of Pronews/2 v1.57
Pronews/2 is a multithreaded NNTP Newsreader program for OS/2.
If you are upgrading from a release prior to 1.54 then you are strongly
urged to backup your existing filter files as the files have a
different on-disk format from 1.54 onwards. Failure to backup files
*.FLT in pronews and pronewsheaders will mean it will be impossible
to use your filters if you should need to revert to a release prior to
1.54. You should also read the readme.txt file installed in the
pronews directory as this covers changes and new features from prior
releases as well as tips for making Pronews/2 quicker.
You can find Pronews/2 1.57 on ftp://hobbes.nmsu.edu/pub/incoming
(later to be ftp://hobbes.nmsu.edu/pub/os2/apps/internet/news/reader)
Pronews/2 is shareware and all profits from its sale are donated to the
charity Save the Children.
Pronews/2 v1.57 is a minor bugfix release and only corrects one problem
found in v1.56 where posts made in US-ASCII were missing the charset
name from the charset= parameter in the header of the article.
