NewsBro is a web-based application providing a Usenet newsreader service. It supports multiple users, accessing multiple news groups on multiple news servers. User profiles are maintained in order to allow for individual news preferences. It is implemented as a Java program, and requires the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) or Java Development Kit (JDK) version 1.4 or later to be installed on the server system. Users only require a standard web browser.
NewsCache is a free cache server for USENET News. NewsCache acts to news reading clients like a news server, except that it stores only those articles that have been requested by at least one client. NewsCache targets problems of the current News System like network bandwidth consumption or the IO load caused by news clients.
newsq allows you to re-edit, view, delete, and postpone messages in your outgoing news queue after you've composed them but before you've uploaded them to your remote server. It uses the curses library to provide a powerful text-based interface. News transports currently supported are leafnode, s-news, sn (partial), slrnpull, and NNTP servers in conjunction with a batch file such as used by an INN/suck/rpost or INN/newsstar combination.
