It is now pullnews.marks, located in pathdb when pullnews is run as the news user, or otherwise in the running user's home directory. This file was previously stored in .pullnews in the running user's home directory (even for the news user). If you use pullnews, you need to manually move and rename the configuration file; otherwise, it will no longer work. Note that the -c flag passed to pullnews allows to specify another configuration file, if need be."

Thats perfect :)

Thats says it installed them, no idea why it didnt show current when I
looked at pullnews, tonight man says its right one from 2015, so, all
seems good with 2.6, from initial tests I didnt have to alter nnrpd
filter, shows anonymous still on test server, so should be all good if
it was allowed to go upstream - which for obvious reasons, its not :) 

so, from me, for my purposes, a +1 for release of 2.6.0 

( we have pullnews keep it up to date once a week, so when we commit to
change over from server_x to inn for live use - likely this year, we
wont have to wait 3 weeks syncing data lol)
