NewsLeecher 1.0 Beta 6

#: This version of NewsLeecher implements a new internal
   way of handling articles. This means that the old cache
   format doesn't work anymore, so you will have to redownload
   all article headers after upgrading to this version.
+: Major new feature: It's now possible to search up to 3
   usenet groups at the same time, using the newly implemented
   server search feature. The search feature is based on the
   'XPAT' usenet server command. It will not work on all
   servers as some usenet providers have disabled the XPAT
   command to save system resources.
+: Added a queue manager system. It's now possible to save and
   load different transfer queues.
+: It's now possible to customize which buttons should
   appear on the standard toolbar.
+: Added feature that makes it possible to manually add a new
   group to the list of groups available.
+: It's now configurable whether articles should be marked as
   old when NewsLeecher updates a group.
*: Simplified lots of the menus.
*: Changed behaviour of 'DEL' key whenin active group. It's now
   used to mark articles as 'old' instead of deleting the articles
   from the cache. Much requested feature change.
*: Tons of small improvements all over the app. Too many to
   mention all of them.
!: Fixed bug where NewsLeecher didn't finish certain 'incomplete'
   downloads.
!: Fixed 'Post' and 'Post Reply' feature.
!: Fixed a buffer bug in the uuDecode routine that sometimes
   caused NewsLeecher to crash without notice if the UUencoded
   article was faulty encoded.
!: NewsLeecher was unable to login to some servers that
   doesnt allow posting. That has been fixed.
!: Tons of small bugfixes all over the app.

Quick NewsLeecher status update:

The SuperSearch service was down for some time yesterday, due to a bug in the SuperSearch frontend software. The bug has now beed fixed, and the search/indexer/deobfuscator service is running again. Sorry for the inconvenience.

The NewsLeecher forums have been under pretty heavy spam attacks during the last several days. Due to this, we will make some anti-spam updates to the forum software over the next few days, so expect a bit of forum downtime. Hopefully, though, the updates will help prevent these massive amount of spam from hitting the forums in the future. But who knows, the spammers are tricky bastards, so we'll have to wait and see.

NewsLeecher V8.0 Beta 2 is currently being worked on. We are implementing a "Super Search" result search-filter and a files/folders search-filter for the "Explorer" part of NewsLeecher.
We are also looking into an issue concerning the new V8 leeching engine, that occasionally (rarely for most users) causes downloading articles to 'go to sleep' for several seconds/minutes, before waking up again to finished the transfer. We think we know why this happens... Looking into it.

Since tons of code has been rewritten since the previous release, there might still be quite a few bugs present in the first betas of NewsLeecher V8. So we recommend backing up your NewsLeecher settings/data before installing.
