SLRN is a nice text newsreader able to work both online and offline, using an NNTP server or its own spool. SLRN offers a powerful scoring system which can help you to instantly find messages you are interested to, and includes a macro language too.

Here you can find the latest version of SLRN precompiled for OS/2.

The OS/2 port of SLRN was supported by Bjoern Frantzen until 1997. As far as I know, no one continued his work, so I decided to make a new homepage for SLRN OS/2 and make precompiled versions available here. I'm able to compile a C program like this one, but I'm still learning C/C++, so if you find some OS/2 related bug please inform me, but I cannot assure you that I'll fix it.
