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

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!

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!

Good new take on the newsreader genre. A little rough in places, but very promising. Recommended.

A clean, simple user interface. A bit unstable as it is still beta software. A bit of a memory leak. No feature (that I have yet figured out) that enables you to set a default directory for saving files.

All in all, an excellent, simple newsreader that needs some improvement. Try it and send feedback to Halime.
