NewsLeecher 3.9 Beta 7
#: 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category has been replaced by a new 'Erotica' search category,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
