    Afaik, no. The original author has the skills, but ceased its development because of not enough free time.
    afxgroup made an OS4 port with several updates. No major features added so far.

    As far as I remember the sources compile straight out of the box under Morphos, provided no major changes have been made to its core you could still retrieve latest sources and compile it yourself (or have one of us done for you).

    Just FYI, there has been a MorphOS native binary available for some years:

    There is a new version of NewsCoaster for MorphOS. It is not a fast hack, like my last version. This version should be much more stable than latest version for MorphOS and a little more stable than 68k version. This version doesn't use Nlist and Nlisttree classes. So this is possible, some of options doesn't work, like lately. If You find something working differently, please tell me about it. Also I made some changes in memory managment, and removed some bugs.

    @Kaczus

    Thank you for the new version.
    It works pretty well for me.

    No stability issues so far, only minor quirk is the scrolling behavior:
    It seems to be relative to the amount of items, so its slow with a few threads and jumps a complete screen on groups with many threads.

    Any chance to for utf support?

    Yes, but no chance in this version. I'd like to make a stable version first.

    Ok, i justtested the current beta and works very well.
    Some suggestions/functions which can be very usefull:

    1. Conext sensitive popups would be cool
    2. At the moment a group is bold,
    if there are unread messages in it.
    Nobody reads all messages of a group.
    It woud be much better if a group
    is bold if there are new messages since
    last viewed content of a group.
    3. Prewiew of a message would be very cool
    (see yam or simple mail for example).
    4. I cannot navigate trough content of group
    keyboard and select a message by space.

    1) to utf You must converting from other standards
    2) with utf is for this day too much trouble on morphos. It needs to write new mui classes (lists and editors). But I can spend on programing only a few hours a week.
