Changes in this release:

* added X-Face support (thanks to Andrew Taylor for helping
  me in the translation of his javascript port of uncompface, and to
  Alien321 for telling me about the Mnheny Thunderbird extension) 
* added Face support (note you can't send Faces, because this is a non
  standard header). 
* added i18n support with gettext. At the moment the supported languages
  are Italian and French (thanks to Guillaume Bedot for the code and for
  the French translation) 
* rewrote NNTP connection handler as an externale module. Now it should
  be more readable and more reliable. 
* some refinements in watch/ignore/mark features 
* fixed some quirk behaviours in the wrapping feature. Now the live
  wrapping should work better. 
* added Subject based threading, it's used when References based
  threading fails 
* now XPN can generate Message-IDs, and you can also use a personal
  [pseudo-]FQDN. 
* added command line options, now you can run xpn with "-d" option and
  it will store articles and configs files inside a .xpn directory in
  your home-dir. (thanks to Guillaume Bedot for the code) 
* added a simple outbox, you can store your articles in it when you are
  offline and then send them when you estabilish the connection with the
  server. 
* now XPN should autmatically repair its database when it gets
  corrupted. 
* some fixes for Supersede/Cancel features 
* now you can select multiple row in groups list. So for instance you
  can subscribe more than one group with one click, or you can use the
  new "download new headers in selected groups". 
* now you can use a different From field when you reply by mail 
* fixed a bug introduced in the previous release that caused a crash
  trying to use a NickName with extended characters in it.
