Halime is a native Cocoa news reader for reading news on- and offline via NNTP. Halime is a subscription oriented newsreader which helps keep track off different subjects on the net with different, multiple subscriptions. It supports multiple news servers, binary extraction, makes extensive use of the Mac Aqua user interface, and a lot more. And above all, it is free!

Features include: multiple servers, multiple subscriptions, binary extraction, sorting, keeping track of sent postings, color-coding, and much more.

What's New

Version 1.0rc2b adds the following:
  • Remove (delete) read articles would stall Halime - fixed
  • Fixed a "Spacebar"-Navigation bug introduced in 1.0rc2
  • When switching from newsroup to newsgroup using g/G, Halime would not scroll to the first posting in the newly displayed group - fixed

Requirements

Mac OS X 10.2 or later

The feature set is not bad, but the app is unstable: it crashed on attempt to kill a thread on a G3 iBook with OS X 10.3.9.

and that would likely be due to the fact that development stopped on this app almost two years ago.

A little rough around the edges -- spelling mistakes in the interface, drawers that overlap each other, etc. But it has some nice features and worked well enough. Could be a really great newsreader with some more work.

Just downloaded this and will be switching from MTNW, abandonware or not. Works fine on 10.3.7.

Thanks to the developer for making the source available - hopefully its useful life will be extended

-: ABANDONWARE :-
Unfortunately, due to a lot of reasons, I am giving up developing a PUBLIC version of Halime from now on. Please feel free to download the source code above, which represents the latest version of Halime.

Please don't ask me for any support on the source code, use it as it is. You can in fact download, extract and startup Project-Builder to build a copy of your own.

I would like to thank all of you for your support and help and wish you all the very best.

Absolutely Stable on mY OS X 10.2.8 with Ver 1.0rc2b.
Much better interface than MT-NewsWatcher.

Only problems
- does not confirm if message has been posted or not if SMTP server address is incorrect.
- more decoding types should be supported by adding helper applications.

But even otherwise, the feature set is excellent!

I'm more than inpressed with the interface as it *almost* approaches Gravigy for Windows. The only problem I figgle with is sometimes the reader just won't pick up all the posts from the server.

If anyone can give more advice, please post it here and/or email ruddell@unibase.com

But I do think this application is going to go much further and thank all involved for the effort...

Am I just dreaming that someday there may be a version of this program that doesn't crash when one tries to kill a message thread?!

This will never be a fast/stable/killer newsreader as long as the author stores everything as objects in memory. Until the author uses a database framework (a search on MacUpdate shows a couple), Halime will always have a large footprint in memory as well as on disk.

This will be a killer newsreader when it's more stable.
As it is, it takes about a minute and a half to open (if it opens without crashing) and several minutes to close, it doesn't seem to be able to sort headers chronologically with the latest posting at the top (unless I'm missing something), decoding multi-part attachments needs to be more intuitive and reliable. Overall, it's slow.
Having said all that, I use it all the time and it is (excepting Pan), the best newsreader out there. Looking forward to the next rev!
