Unison for Mac2.2

08 November 2014

Usenet newsreader handles messages, files, & media.

What is Unison for Mac

Unison is a carefully-crafted, genuinely revolutionary Mac OS X Usenet newsreader. It offers all the expected newsreader functionality: easy-to-navigate threaded discussions, the ability to ignore annoying posters, multiple signature management, and easy, Mail-like posting with spell checking and all the trimmings.

But it also goes much, much further than any other Usenet client on earth, starting with a unique four-view interface that lets you view and work with Usenet group content in four distinct styles: messages, files, images, or music. It lets you preview MP3 files directly off a Usenet server, view images in an elegant iPhoto-like thumbnail view, prioritize transfers with a flexible downloads manager, find favorites quickly with a categorized column-view interface, smartly group files into meta-groups (like songs into albums), show download status beautifully in the dock, and much more.

What's new in Unison

Version 2.2:
  • End of development, last update for Unison
  • Now free, unlocked for all users
  • Adds multi-connection downloads for much faster transfers
  • Adds a lot more Retina assets for more beautiful browsing on newer machines
  • Fixes many little bugs and quirks

Really love Unison, but it crashes a lot with the newer Mac OS operating systems. I'm using OS 10.14.3 Mojave and have found that if you add it to System Preferences/Security & Privacy/Accessibility, it works great. Hasn't crashed once since I've done this. Of course, there's a privacy issue that may be a concern for some, but not me.

Anyone know how to get the 2.1.10 version? I'm ready to just downgrade at this point.

I like some of the changes made to how items are downloaded, and of course it's now free, but it's buggy as hell. I know Panic has said 2.2 was EoD, but maybe they could at least release a bug fix to make 2.2 useable. As it is, I can use it for a short amount of time before it crashes, usually at the end of a download. Quite annoying.

Anyone else having issues with 2.2 simply not loading groups? Using 1.8.1 loads everything nicely. Using 2.2 with the exact same server settings doesn't do anything! Very perplexed...

Version 2.2 is crashing a lot and thus more or less unusable. Version 2.1x was ok but can't be registered anymore on a new system as they shut down(?) their service to check the serial number. I will consider this if I ever again have to pay money for a Panic product. Thanks Panic for a product (Unison 2.1) that I bought but can't use as the serial number can't be checked. I hate cloud/server based DRM and understand even more why some people tend to copy/steal all the software.

This version is very crashy. I rarely get through a session without the app dying. Also, downloads seem to fail more often than not, so I've started just exporting NZBs and using NZBVortex to download.

Unison 2.2. works like a charm for me, just like all the previous releases from the last 5 or so years. It's still he number one hassle free newsreader for your mac. Don't get distracted by all the negative reviews down here. Try it yourself and find out. Thank you Panic !!!!!! I hope you change your mind.......

Forgot to mention — you can still send email to developers to report details of reproducible bugs & crashes in Unison 2.2: support@panic.com Include "Unison" in the subject line. Now that they've formally stopped supporting Unison, don't expect they'll be paying much attention to posts here (and that could be lucky for us, since there are few comments from jerks who were apparently raised by wolves and have no manners). You need to understand that we're ALL completely at the mercy of the developers for any additional fixes they might informally and voluntarily undertake on our behalf... So — PLEASE stop posting insults!

Abandonware. This version doesn't work at all. There are now no usenet apps for Macintosh? It's a mad world.
