Pan Newsreader for Windows - Installer Build
This page contains a (hopefully recent, but unofficial) build of the Pan NNTP Newsreader (see http://pan.rebelbase.com) packaged in a simple windows installer. The installer includes the main executable, a handful of libraries, including the spellchecker .dll files, and the localisation/language files and puts a shortcut on the desktop.
With Many Thanks to:
Advanced Installer: For providing a free "for open-source" licence to their Windows Installer product for use with the Pan project. Check them out at http://www.advancedinstaller.com/ - I can personally recommend this product having used it commercially a few years ago, and now for Pan.
The Pan developers and contributors: All of those people on the mailing list who answer all of those questions and provide us will this excellent software.
GTK+ runtime libraries must be installed already for the Pan 32-bit build to work at the time of publishing, these could be downloaded here: http://gtk-win.sourceforge.net/
The latest report is that "gtk2-runtime-2.24.8-2011-12-03.exe" works reliably if the compatibility libs option is chosen during install. GTK Themes also seem to be working fine, and can be downloaded from the same site.
Dictionary support for "ispell" and "myspell" dictionaries is built-in using 'gtkspell' and 'enchant' for the best possible compatibility. Two sample dictionaries have been packaged (US and UK English) as examples.
