XPN (X Python Newsreader) is a news client written in Python and based on the GTK+ library.


It offers a good MIME support, scoring system, filtered views, random tag-lines, external editor support, one-key navigation, ROT13, Face and X-Face headers decoding, spoiler char and many more. XPN is free software licensed under the GPL licence.

Thanks to Python and GTK+ it is completely multiplatform. It should work wherever Python and GTK work. A binary Windows version is also provided.

XPN is available in English, Italian, French and German.
