A new version of Papercut is available for download. Papercut is a news server written in Python. Its main objective is to integrate existing web based message board software (Phorum is one of the supported ones) with an Usenet front-end. However, its extensibility enables developers to write their own containers for the storage of the Usenet articles (messages). That means that the code is extensible enough that _you_ could write new containers to integrate the news server with other web message board projects or even other ways to store the messages.
I love working on this project – the possibilities for novel uses of it are really endless. It even looks like someone else might want to use the mbox integration :)
