History

Version 1.0

  • NewsGate v1.0 is a completely different program from v0.8. It has been rewritten from scratch and it has too many new fetures to describe them all. I'll tell you only it has a new visual interface and configuration program, antispam features, auto dialup and a new poll routines that grants speeds that can be twice higher than 0.8.
  • Also it's now public domain and no longer shareware.
