ANU-NEWS V6.0-2 is now available. It can be run as a newsreader only, which 
makes it a very usefull to sites with small disks.  There are also other news 
programs available, but we are very pleased with ANU-NEWS.  Note that old 
(i.e. pre-V6.0) versions do not support the 'diskless' NNTP newsreader function
