Download page:

cmb: Seems that Jan's website has been sold, so you can download Advanced News 1.0.5 from the wiki. Note that the improved PRO version is also available (see below).

cmb: Jan Kanters made a PRO version, which he finally released under GPL on Sep, 9th 2010. This version (2.1.0; originally released on Sep, 5th 2008) has some improvements over the version that is available on his homepage. As I was able to get a copy, I have uploaded it here mainly for archiving purposes. If your looking for currently maintained plugins with similar functionality, check out Realblog resp. Realblog_XH and News.
