The newsreader project

The Salvo project can be used to communicate through newsgroups or any other medium that provides a Q&A type structure (like mailing lists). It provides and underlying decoupled API to access information (e.g. news servers) and provide offline storage of newsgroup articles. Asking questions and receiving answers are integrated into the workbench.

Instructions

Unpack the zip and run the Salvo executable. Add a news server, add newsgroups then doubleclick a newsgroup to read its messages. It is pretty simple but here is a three.three minute instruction without audio. Send me a mail on my gmail or tweet me at twitter if you download this. You can send bug reports and feature requests also to one of these addresses.

Technology

The code has a pluggable server and persistance implementation. The reference persistance impl uses the local file system and stuff is stored in a .salvo directory in your home directory.
