    Command Line (or minimalist GUI) usenet poster for binaries developped in C++/QT designed to be as fast as possible and offer all the main features to post data easily and safely. Releases for Linux, Windows and MacOS are available.

    A bit of a different tack: consider whether you even need to use a password. I made a comment here to the tune of thinking it makes little sense in most cases. Do passwords actually provide any more protection than obfuscation? Before mindlessly answering 'yes', consider the fact that passwords aren't actually used for secure encryption purposes in Usenet (since the password needs to be shared around), but rather a fancy form of obfuscation. Unfortunately, I don't really have any hard evidence one way or the other, so I don't like making this point (though I'd argue that proponents don't have any evidence either), but I think it's worth the thought.

    It was mentioned that encryption/password protection may be reason why you'd stick with RAR.
