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
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.
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
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 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:
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:
As usual, a bunch of minor bugfixes.
