DESCRIPTION

(A point program handles the transfer, reading and writing of email and
news.  Janus is one way to transfer email and news and is very popular in
Germany.)

Another Janus point program for the Amiga.  It was designed to be easy to
use by not overloading it with thousands of features that hardly anybody
uses.

The concept is a bit different from that found in other Janus point
programs as it shows the newsgroups list, the contents of the current
newsgroup and the text of the current message at once (each of them in a
separate window) and not one after the other.

At present the program is only available in a German version!

Please keep in mind that this is one of the first Janus versions of this
program.  ARexx integration into the GUI and a killfile were omitted for
now in favor of more debugging and a better GUI.  They will be available
later.
