Pan is nice for a linux native app. Supports NZBs and large groups
(1,000,000+ headers). Newsbin Pro (even newest beta builds) works fine
in Wine. If you install winrar and quickpar under wine, the auto par
and rar extract will also work.
Pan doesn't support some features like built in par checking and rar
decoding, nor auto nzb loading. But it is quite nice in it's own
right. I use it instead of Newsbin Pro because I like it better.
Ninan is another solution. Ninan is only an nzb downloader though, so
no group browsing. It too will autoload nzbs and perform par2 checking
and rar extracting.
