    Discussion - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/slrn

    The usenet newsreader slrn had had a major update t0 1.0.1 as of December 21st 2012 and I have updated the Community Docs page with instructions for building this latest version:

    See you all on usenet

    A quick note to slrn users: there is currently some confusion with the slrn website(s). The site I give in the wiki article:

    Home of the slrn newsreader
    http://slrn.sourceforge.net

    is the one that I personally maintain for JED and it is up to date with details of the new version. There is another site which was formerly mirrored from the sourceforge site:

    Home of the slrn newsreader
    http://www.slrn.org

    whose domain name has been recently purchased by somebody unattached to the slrn project. Unfortunately this site is somewhat out of date and does not contain information regarding the latest release. Hopefully this situation can be resolved soon...

    A small update for the slrn page, looks like the instructions for compiling the latest release version failed as Ubuntu some time ago moved libslang files around. This should capture both 32 and 64bit:

    Code:
    ./configure --with-slrnpull --enable-setgid-code --with-slang=/lib/*-linux-gnu
    Let me know of any problems with this one....

    Cool Re: Discussion - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/slrn

    slrn fanatics with a Windows 8 VM may also be interested in some work I have just completed:

    Compiling the git slrn under Windows 8
    *********************************/slrn-windows.html

    This not only gets slrn running under Windows but it has a good look at some parts of the slrn source which will benefit Ubuntu users as well. And it is a lot of fun as well
