In 7.04 there is a directory ~/.pan2/groups, which apparently contains
files with information about visited newsgroups. I don't remember if the
same directory exists in the previous Pan version, but if it does, you
could try to move the files from the old directory to the new one. This
setting has changed in the new Pan version though. Each newsgroup has
it's own setting now. You may have to improvise.

You could try the same with other directories/files one by one. Perhaps
some of them are compatible. Often you can tell from the name of the
file what it is for.
