NewsLeecher 4.0 beta 6

Posted on Sunday, Jul 12 2009 @ 18:57 CEST by

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 the 'Delete From Cache' group cache feature.

+: (Re)implemented option to automatically delete newly downloaded

files if the files already exists in the download folders.

The option can be accessed from:

Settings -> Adv. Nerdy Tweaks -> Download_Skip_Existing_Files

*: <<< Performance Improvement >>>

Optimized the group cache loading code. Depending on various

parameters, the new group cache loading code is up to 500%

faster in the code used in previous versions of NewsLeecher.

*: Simplified the Groups Browsing popup menu and the SuperSearch

popup menu.

*: Improved the 'Adv. Nerdy Tweaks' dialog interface a bit.

*: Lots of smaller improvements.

!: Fixed bug introduced in one of the previous betas, where

NewsLeecher would sometimes crash when NZB importing articles

to the queue, if the articles were already queued.

!: Various smaller bug fixes.

-: Removed the "Find in SuperSearch" feature. It will be replaced

with a more powerful "Find in SuperSearch" feature in a later

NewsLeecher V4.X release.
