Posted on Saturday, January 14 2006 @ 19:18:04 CET by LSDsmurf

  • Newsgroup Organization Features: act on an individual group or a group of groups.
  • On-the-fly Download Prioritization: get the important stuff first.
  • Multiple Server Support: configure multiple news servers for simultaneous use.
  • Advanced Download Management: use the Scratch list to park posts for downloading later
  • Automatic Header Updates: always have the most recent headers available for browsing.
  • NZB File Support: automatically loads NZB files, or click and drag.
  • MP3 Organizer: use MP3 ID3V2 tags to organize by albums and artist.
  • Optimal Resource Management: uses significantly less RAM than Version 4.x
  • Image Database and Viewer : store images to a database and view with built-in viewer.
Missing V4 Features:
  • Automatic Download Mode
  • Posting capabilities
Known Issues: (Entire buglist available here)
  • Kill Connections in Connections tab does not give feedback. Does not kill connections on some machines for some reason.
  • In scratch list, ctrl-shift-e to add to top of download list doesn't work (either shift double-click or right-click and hold down the shift key when choosing "Add Posts to Download List as a workaround)
  • In scratch list, Add to download list adds group of selected posts in reverse order.
  • Large header downloads, when using the expert user "headerchop" mode, sometimes re-downloads blocks of headers.
  • Tracking an issue where a few posts are sometimes hidden after downloading new headers for a group with an open post list.
  • Icon in post list tab does not always switch to "completed" icon when all posts are loaded.
  • Post Properties does not show accurate "Missing" info in "Compact Mode" for compacted posts.
  • In post list, Mark All Read does not clear post list if Show New is selected.
  • In post list, add to top adds group of selected posts in reverse order.
  • In post list, Compact Mode will sometimes hide non-yEnc posts that pretend to be yEnc.
  • In Read Posts tab, if you delete the last post, the window jumps up to the beginning of the list.
  • Launch NZB always goes to download list. Does not honor "Download Manual Load NZB's" option.
  • There is no way to switch NBI files from the program anymore. To switch NBI files, close NewsBin and launch it from an existing NBI by using Windows Explorer to locate the NBI file then double-click on it to launch NewsBin.
  • If you do a Read Post Body on a multipart post, all parts are downloaded. Should only download first part.
  • First chunk for a file determined to be a duplicate gets deleted. If it is a multipart file, any other chunks downloaded are not deleted. This will not be an issue when the new scheme of downloading first chunks exclusively to check for dups is implemented.
  • Utilities/Set Font does not apply to bottom portion of Read Posts tab.
  • Utilities/Set Font does not apply to Status Tab
  • Drag and drop of groups in groups list provides no feedback.
  • UUE posts with identical subjects getting combined by mistake.
  • Will not run in a restricted user account (there is a workaround, still researching ramifications).
Known Cosmetic Issues:
  • There is a line overwriting Accept Filter and Reject Filter on the Filter Profiles screen.
  • The "X" to close a post list will ride over other post list options on lower screen resolutions.
  • Icon Legend needs updated
  • In the download list, highlight does not follow the line.
