Mimo User Interface Improvements - Beta v0.2.3 for Diamond Members

Golden Frog has released Mimo Beta v0.2.3 for Diamond Members. Please read the Golden Frog blog post about Mimo Beta v0.2.3 improvements and changes below:
We are pleased once again to announce the latest beta release of the Mimo Usenet browser. Download the free update now. This release continues the "look and feel" user interface updates along with select bug fixes and new feature improvements.

The new Mimo User Interface becomes more visible with this release. In particular, version 0.2.3 introduces the Action Bar, a more consistent place to access common commands. The Action Bar adapts to the content on the current tab in Mimo, variously presenting controls to open newsgroups in new tabs, download selected articles, Reply to or Forward an existing post, manage downloading message headers in newsgroups, and control your download queue.

We also updated the Search and Filter bars, refined the styles and colors, and included a more consistent appearance for tabs and other interactive elements.

Mimo is starting to feel like a new application, but we are far from finished with the user interface overhaul. The Golden Frog development team is continuing to implement more of planned user interface improvements to make Mimo even easier to use. In upcoming releases, look for updates to how Mimo presents images and thumbnails, additional filtering, and more details on active downloads.

Complete details are available in our Change Log. Download the free update now.
