New directory for finding groups
Panic has announced a new version of its Usenet reader, Unison 2. The app provides Usenet users with an interface for reading messages, browsing content, downloading files, or managing data from the Usenet server. The latest version offers a redesigned interface, complete with a new directory for finding groups and customizable per-group settings.
The update integrates a web-based browser for finding files and NZBs. Users can now read messages in a thread view, or view and post messages in HTML or plain text.
Unison 2 requires Mac OS X 10.5 or higher and access to a Usenet server. The upgrade is priced at $20 for current registered users. If the previous version was purchased after November 1st, it is available as a free download. New customers can purchase the program for $30.
