I haven't had contact with them yet (the offer is on their web forum),
but I will ask. In the mean time you can use the program, it is fully
functional for 8 days. Install works fine under wine. Runs fine with
all builtin dlls + native comctl32.

It even works with wine and native comctl32...

It is more difficult to explain then to see. I try another way:

There are several listview controls in the main windowpane, you can
select one using a tab control. This should make all the listviews
exept the one that is at the front tab invisible. They are not: if one
of the hidden listviews changes, the refresh is painted anyway.

Two more things:

- in the left pane you should be able to drag and drop the subscribed
news groups to re-order them. That does not work.

- mouse wheel does not work. It doesn't work with native comctl32
either, it may not be listview related at all.
