Reviewing 4.2 Build 1118 (Jun 23, 2007)
I think the earlier releases were much better, instead the version 4.2 is a buggy piece of crap and I would recommend using some other newsreader instead. By every version the GUI becomes more and more unstructured. It was already bad in previous versions but now it is really crap.
I think functionality wise the agent is great but the programmers have really spoiled the GUI. The architect of the GUI must come from the same breed that designed the GUI for Lotus Notes.

They have ruined good software. Version 2 and earlier was easy to use and made intuitive sense.
When they upgraded the basic newsreader capabilities in version 3 and later, they did add additional "download threads" and improve download speed. But to their shame, they also turned some idiot lose to really trash the interface and in the process, made it a miserable chore to use the program.
I have never ever heard one person say they like the new interface or find the new GUI more than barely / tolerably usable. I tell all those I know to just stick with version 2.x and count their blessings. Spending money upgrading from version 2 is just buying yourself a headache, one you will likely regret.

You would think by now they could include a horizontal scroll bar so one isn't forced to lower the font size in order to see the complete subject line. Not everyone is blessed with perfect vision or 1900x1600 screen resolution capabilities.

Agent is still the most powerful news reader out there, but the clunky interface ruins it for most. What a shame. The people at Dazler should take GUI and filtering lessons from FoxMail and come out of the dark ages.

agree with uberfly. In attempting to make it better, they've only made it more clunky & harder to use.
I am still happy using 2.9X
