NewsLeecher Version History

See what has changed so far, during the history of NewsLeecher.

#: In preparation for the NewsLeecher Version 4 release, there're lots of major internal changes in this beta (still invisible to the end-user). Lots of changes mean lots of new possibilities for bugs, so it's recommended that you stay with the NewsLeecher Final Release if you don't want to experiment. +: *BIG ADDITION*: NewsLeecher now implements a new, and much improved header fetching cache, which is used when fetching headers from usenet groups. In earlier versions, NewsLeecher wrote to the disk *extensively* while fetching headers. But due to the new cache, the disk writes are reduced by several hundred percent, meaning much lower resource usage and much higher responsiveness while fetching group headers. Especially when a fast broadband connection is used. +: *BIG ADDITION*: The SuperSearch 'Audio' category has been merged with the 'General' catetegory, and the 'Picture' category has been replaced by a new 'Erotica' search category, due to the vast amount of erotic related groups on usenet. Furthermore, a new SuperSearch subfilter system, which makes it easy to find specific articles types (such as audio related articles), has been added. +: The SuperSearch 'Result Filter' now supports boolean searching. *: Lots of internal changes have been made to NewsLeecher and SuperSearch in preparation for the upcoming NewsLeecher v4 version. !: Fixed a serious bug, introduced in the previous beta, where NewsLeecher would consume all system memory under certain circumstances: http://www.newsleecher.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=14279 !: Smaller bugfixed here and there.

SuperSearch is currently running with a bit more than 4 years of article retention. But we are working hard to reach our goal of 10+ years retention. All 10+ years of Usenet article-data is in our storage, just waiting to be used to bump the SuperSearch retention.

The reason that retention is currently "only" at ~4 years, is that the amount of stuff posted to the Usenet is constantly rising. It requires more and more system resources to keep up, even though the index retention is kept constant. And not only that. We have also decided to start indexing subjects of text-groups and keep full index retention for audio and image (JPG, PNG, etc) groups. Those groups alone contain tens of millions of articles that we make fully searchable in true wildcard/substring (

Anyway. As mentioned above, we are working hard on improving the SuperSearch service at the moment. The service's backend-engine is being partly rewritten to improve performance and to make sure that the service is futureproof, by being able to keep up with the ever expanding Usenet retention demands.

We also use the code-rewrite opportunity to modulize the backend, so it gets a lot easier to add new functionality in the future.

While we cannot say for sure when exactly the job is done, we can say though, that it will be pretty soon. Things are progressing nicely and the most longhaired part of the optimization is done.

So all in all, good things to come soon :)
