    From Newsgroup: comp.sys.mac.apps

    Usenapp Usenet client is out of Beta and the final release is available.

    This is a very good Mac only Usenet client, I have been using the Beta for
    some months and is worth consideration for Mac users.

    I am very happy as all the rules/filters I wrote for the Beta transferred to the final release without any issues.

    At first glance, I don't see support for sharing, exporting, or importing newsrc. : (

    I guess there's no way to import rules.

    And it looks like the choice of headers for rule matching is rather limited
    and not customizable. A modern Usenet client should allow filtering based on any header.

    I don't see a way to hide columns in the newsreader views either (the typical Mac behavior of right-clicking column headers to hide/show them doesn't
    work).

    Do X-Face images get displayed anywhere?

    Well, I looked.

    1) Does not read existing newsrc file
    2) does not read .signature file

    These are non-starters for me.

    3) No ability to add custom headers.
    4) Message posting pane does no wrap text and does no resept the
    font setting for message preview (the only font setting you can
    set.
    5) The format of this post would be, as near as I could tell,
    impossible.

    I had some other points, but that brings me to the next thing, the post I submitted in the app did not get posted. In order to read news, you have
    to define your server as "download & post" which makes no sense since
    the downloading settings in the client are all about downloading
    binaries.

    Feels very focused on downloading and not on posting, and the UI
    requires either an absurd 5 column view, or a view in which you get to
    choose from either seeing very little thread info or a very wide message preview.

    Usenapp is a fairly new newsreader and new features are constantly being

    It seems to mainly be a downloader for copyright violations from the binary newsgroups.

    I suppose that's ok if you go in for that sort of thing. I've always
    thought that the people who do go in for that are also the ones who are
    likely to use cracked versions of something like Usenetapp or use a

    I suppose that's ok if you go in for that sort of thing. I've always

    Not really, it's pretty usable for text-based Usenet. Granted, I don't really need a lot of features other people in this thread already mentioned, e.g. I'm not bothered it can't read newsrc because I only use one newsreader on a
    single device. I've never used binary groups.

    You were implying that the primary design purpose of Usenapp was to download from binary NG’s in violation of copyright.

    Copyright; Digital Rights, DRM = Digital Rights Management

    I've used VMware Fusion for this (with various releases including 10.14)
    for several years without issue.

    I realize VMware Fusion ain't free though. I didn't purchase it strictly

    Parallels Desktop 16 Pro. It works very well but I don't much like

    I also run Win 10 and Linux Mint 19 in their own VMs. I did use

    IMO Usenapp is pretty good for text Usenet too; I don't do bunnies.
    I do have the latest version here (licensed) but I'm still weaning
    myself off of MacSOUP (that's a hard habit to break, it's such a pity
    that it's only 32 bit.)

    My plan is to use an old version of MacSOUP running under SheepShaver.

    My machine runs Catalina now (64 bit only) so I took advantage of
    the half price Usenapp introductory offer with a view to switching
    to that when I can face the upheaval. Meanwhile, I have a Mojave VM
    that I keep just for MacSOUP; it really is a very hard habit to break.

    What are you using to run Mojave in a VM (I tried VirtualBox and it has failed spectacularly every time, not even getting t the point of fully installing).

    I'm not willing to spend money on virtualizing Mojave, especailly with
    Apple Silicon imminent.

    The new VMWare Fusion 12 now has a version called "Fusion Player" which
    is free for personal use. It does almost everything the full "Fusion
    Pro" does.
