NewsLeecher 3.8 beta 6

Posted on Thursday, November 16 2006 @ 00:12:42 CET by LSDsmurf

New features:
  • No more annoying and lenghty auto-cache cleanup procedure while browsing groups in NewsLeecher. NewsLeecher now waits with the cache cleanup until the application is closed down. It prompts for cleanup, so it's possible skip the procedure if wanted. It's recommended to let NewsLeecher perform cleanups from time to time though, as the cleanups make the application run faster and smoother.
  • Added an option to ZIP compress exported NZB Files. The option can be accessed from: Options->Download->NZB Files->Zip Compress Exported NZB Files
  • NewsLeecher can now auto import NZBs from ZIP archives. The ZIP archives must have the format "*.nzb.zip" for NewsLeecher to detect them.
  • It's now possible to search for strings, containing whitespaces with SuperSearch. If you, for example, want to search for the string ' car', including the leading whitespace, just enter " car" into the search field (including the '"' characters).
  • Memory handling: NewsLeecher now limits the number of simultaneous group updates. The limit will, in most cases, bring down memory usage quite a lot when updating groups. The max groups limit can be setup from 'Options -> Download -> Headers'.
  • Memory handling: NewsLeecher will now unload inactive groups, if more than 2 groups are currently stored in memory. This will in some cases dramatically reduce the NewsLeecher memory usage.
  • It's now possible to drag'n'drop NZB and ZIP packed NZB files directly into the NewsLeecher transfer queue. Drags can be performed from Windows Explorer or any other OLE drag'n'drop enabled application.
Improved features:
  • A much improved, now multi-threaded, folder update detection routine is now used to keep track of folder changes in the integrated File Explorer.
  • Changed the behaviour of the 'Download Filter' feature. Instead of completely skipping articles which matches the download filter, NewsLeecher will now add matching articles to the download queue in 'paused' mode. Filter is located at: "Options -> Filters -> Download Filter".
  • When clicking the 'unload all groups' button, NewsLeecher will now also cancel all queued group update requests.
  • NewsLeecher can now "pretty-up" foldernames based on imported newzBin v3 NZB filenames.
  • Various small improvements. (improved folder synchronization between the integrated explorer listview and the integrated explorer treeview, etc..)
  • Other small improvements here and there. (the cache cleanup wait dialog is more responsive during the cleanup procedure, etc..)
Fixed bugs:
  • Fixed a bug which sometimes preventet temporary files from being deleted until NewsLeecher was restarted. Could use a lot of diskspace if NewsLeecher was used for a long time without restarting.
  • Fixed a bug where NewsLeecher would show a bug notice, if an article was deleted from the download queue while being actively downloaded. Bug ID: j933d(2).
  • The icon legend under the 'help' menu was bugged. Fixed.
  • In the most recent betas, NewsLeecher wasn't 100% compatible with a 800x600 screen resolution. This has been fixed: http://www.newsleecher.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=11689
  • As usual, a bunch of minor bugfixes.
