Interface is great but the app is slow and unstable
I simply canot close it normally ..

I keep using kill -9 ...

not to mention that on startup it eats a 100% of my cpu

I have to kvm to another box while is downloading binary posts just to browse the net

(duron 950 ,650 MB ram, fluxbox on slackware current)

The only reason to use it is becouse there's nothing better out there

nice job
I've switched from Knode to Pan 0.14.2, and am pretty happy. Actually, I thought Knode rocked in general, so the fact that I prefer Pan is high praise for Pan. The only problem I've experienced is that the killfile mechanism is broken, but AFAICT from surfing the project's web page, that bug has been fixed in the latest beta version.

Pan pops up the new user dialog whenever it can't find
any identities in the profiles.xml file, typically in the
~/.pan directory. Do you have a file ~/.pan/profiles.xml?

This is an awkward forum to track bugs; please file
a bugzilla report via http://pan.rebelbase.com/bugs/
and we'll continue this there.

Pan 0.11.94
I've been using Pan pretty much since the project
began. After I upgraded to 0.11.94 it started up with
the settings wizard asking me for all the servers
again.

Figuring there had been a change in the format, I
shrugged and filled it in. Everything worked as
before.

When I started it the next time, it asked for my info
AGAIN! It seems to ignore the server settings every
time it starts. Any help?

The crashing of my X was coincidental - It was related to my video card.

The Fink project has Pan
running on OS X (http://pan.rebelbase.com/gfx/ss/osx.png).

The Pan site's download page (http://pan.rebelbase.com/download.html) links to the Fink packages.

At last a reasonable news reader for linux.
I recently installed PAN and I have found it a very good tool indeed. It has had a few threads block and become unusable (well they seemed to anyway in the task queue) and I have had X crash twice while using it but that may be coincidental. This is a usable tool for me and I can't wait for it to stabalise even more!
Keep up the good work.

PS any chances of getting this onto OSX? My secondary machine is OSX.

pan rocks
Finally, pan is becoming extremely stable (hasn't crashed on me since the 0.9.7 pre versions) and even more usable. The memory footprint is also a lot better now. It has a few features still missing (posting binaries and getting parts of binaries from multiple servers) to make it perfect, but then - what is perfect? ;-)
Pan is already the graphical newsreader of choice for downloading binaries, period.
