OSXnews is a small, fast usenet newsreader for OS X. It is designed to look and behave like Apple's Mail program and uses it for all mail functions. It also uses the Webcore engine used in Safari to display messages. It is actively being developed and the current version supports many (though not all ) features people expect in a newsreader. OSXnews is a Universal Application and works well on the new Intel Macs. It also has some support for binary posts. At the moment this is limited to single part yEnc posts. Full support is expected in upcoming versions.
