I knew it had gone down hill, but now they're sending out spam for wedding florists via their RSS feed? And I thought the slashdot editors were bad. I guess it's time to completely remove them from my RSS and bookmarks.

The new version of pan newsreader just introduced into Unstable is awful. There's literally no transition if you were running a previous version - meaning that previously set groups, profiles, and scorefiles, etc are completely unusable.
I have literally years worth of scorefile that's useless in this new version, since the scoring syntax has changed, so I can't just point it towards the old one. Hell, there's no place I can even find in the preferences dialog to even point at a custom scorefile, or set a "group default" for saving articles/binaries to... so one has to edit each individual group to do so. The pane layout doesn't even save the settings. You'd think a later version would have better functionality, not worse.

Blech.

Guess I'll be reverting to the old version and putting it on hold until I have a few days to rebuild from scratch what I've spent about 3 years building up.
