The SeaMonkey project is a community effort to develop an all-in-one Internet application suite. It contains an Internet browser, email and newsgroup client with an included Web feed reader, HTML editor, IRC chat, and Web development tools, and is sure to appeal to advanced users, Web developers, and corporate users. It uses much of the Mozilla source code powering such successful siblings as Firefox, Thunderbird, Camino, Sunbird, and Miro.
phpGroupWare (formerly known as webdistro) is a multi-user groupware suite written in PHP. Its provides a Web-based calendar, todo-list, addressbook, email, news headlines, and a file manager. The calendar supports repeating events. The email system supports inline graphics and file attachments. The system as a whole supports user preferences, themes, user permissions, multi-language support, an advanced API, and user groups.
NewsLib is a library of Perl modules for managing Network News services. It's meant to be used for code-reuse and sharing when writing news-based applications. It includes Net::NNTP::Client (simulates a news client), Net::NNTP::Proxy (a proxying news server), and News::NNTPAuth (NNTP authentication).
Papercut is a multi-threaded NNTP server written in Python. Its main objective is to integrate existing Web-based message board software (Phorum is one of the supported ones) with a Usenet front-end. However, its extensibility enables developers to write their own containers for the storage of the Usenet articles (messages). That means that the code is extensible enough that you could write new containers to integrate the news server with other Web message board projects or even other ways to store the messages.
sTeam provides a technical platform which allows groups of students, lecturers, and any other groups to construct and arrange their individual and cooperative learning and working space. It consists of an object-oriented server connected to a database, and Web, Java, and other (FTP, SMTP, IRC, etc.) clients. The server is event-driven and manages all user objects as well as the communication between the connected clients. Features that were different from most other cooperation tools is the self-organisation and self-administration by the members within the virtual environment.
Net_NNTP is a PHP/PEAR library for communication with NNTP servers. Net_NNTP handles connection and protocol-level commands (RFC977), including many non-standard commands (RFC2980), via a user-friendly API which hides the actual NNTP commands/syntax. Some knowledge about NNTP and general knowledge about email and MIME is required, since parsing of content and headers is left up to the user. Net_NNTP allows advanced users direct usage of NNTP commands via the separate protocol implementation. Net_NNTP includes a fully-functional NNTP to HTML gateway demo application.
News::Overview is a Perl object that manages condensed information about Usenet posts in the overview format. It accepts information from an NNTP XOVER command, and allows for basic searching and sorting of the referenced articles. It was designed to be part of several other news modules.
SharpNNTP is a C# library for accessing newsgroups from within the .NET/Mono Framework. It can handle group listing, message retrieving, and message posting as Datasets (useful for DataBinding) or XML (useful for many other uses). It implements full documentation and full IntelliSense help. Binaries are provided for both the MS (sharpNNTP.dll) and Mono (sharpNNTPmono.dll) frameworks.
News::Archive is a Usenet news archiving package for downloading and later accessing news articles in bulk. It can load articles laid out in INN format, retrieve them from a running news server, or just take articles one-by-one. It is compatible with News::Web and Net::NNTP::Server, so the articles can be shared either via the Web or via NNTP.
