newts

News-like program designed for use as a message board

Newts is a notesfile program, a news-like program for use as a message board. Newts is designed for *NIX-like systems, and resembles the Notesfiles program written early in the 1980s at the University at Urbana-Champaign. The client program included emulates the look and feel of Notesfiles, and the UIUC backend is compatible with Notesfiles data files. Future versions of Newts will include a separate daemon to manage multiple local and network connections, additional backends, and additional clients.
