NewsLeecher 4.0 beta 6Posted on Sunday, Jul 12 2009 @ 18:57 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
NewsLeecher is a tool made for fetching and managing articles from the Usenet. It downloads Usenet articles in a snap, and uses it's inline engine to assemble and decode all the downloads. The powerful featureset and state-of-the-art user interface makes it an application "you simply can't live without" if you are a serious Usenet user. The current releases of NewsLeecher are mainly made binary files downloading, but we're working hard on extending NewsLeecher with full-blown text reader capabilities at the moment.
+: (Re)implemented support for a launch password. The password can
be enabled from:
Settings -> Adv. Nerdy Tweaks -> Paranoia_Launch_Password

+: (Re)implemented option to automatically delete newly downloaded
files if the files already exists in the download folders.
The option can be accessed from:
