NewsLeecher 2.1 Beta 1
#: This version of NewsLeecher uses a new group cache format.
This means that your previously downloaded group headers
an't be used with this version. Your old headers are still
kept on your computer so you, at any time, can install an
older version of NewsLeecher and keep using the headers.
*: The biggest memory eater in NewsLeecher has now been
eliminated! In NewsLeecher versions prior to 2.1, it would,
in extreme cases, require up of 500MB RAM for NewsLeecher to
do a cache-cleanup for large groups with lots of retention.
This version of NewsLeecher introduces a new cache cleanup
function that doesn't require *any* RAM at all to do the
cleaning. Besides that, it is also much faster than the old
clean up function.
*: NewsLeecher uses a new memory manager which makes the
application a bit faster and a bit more stable.
*: Optimized the load/save cache functions a bit. They are a
little faster now.
*: All queue-move functions are now directly accessible from the
'Download Queue' toolbar.
*: Other small improvements.
