NewsLeecher 3.95 Beta 1

#: Please note that the listview column settings (width,
   visibility, etc) have been reset in this release, due to a bug
   in the previous beta release.
+: NewsLeecher now uses a new license key system, which makes it
   possible to register NewsLeecher without going to the members
   area. Note that this is a pretty major change, so there might
   be a few new betas coming out soon after this one, containing
   fixes and tweaks related to this change.
+: Implemented 3 new skins for the interface in NewsLeecher. The
   skins can be accessed by the buttons on the right side of the
   main toolbar.
+: Lots of the GUI elements which have never been skinnable, now
   are. Including the 'please wait' window, the bandwidth graphs,
   etc..
+: It's now possible to replace exisiting SuperSearch bookmarks.
+: NewsLeecher now stores 10 rotating backups of the NewsLeecher
   settings file, "setup.dat", in the
   "%appdata%\newsleecher\backups\" folder.
   The backups might be good to have if some of your NewsLeecher
   settings get deleted, or your setup.dat file corrups for some
   reason.
+: Implemented new feature which makes it possible to show
   custom messages to the user when NewsLeecher is launched.
+: Implemented a new file manager feature, which makes it possible
   to easily combine/merge selected files in the NewsLeecher File
   Manager. This can be useful when combining HDTV '.TS' files for
   example. The feature can be accessed from the 'toolbox' popup
   placed on the 'Explorer' toolbar.
+: Implemented a new file manager feature, which makes it possible
   to easily create folders based on the names of the files
   selected in the NewsLeecher File Manager. The feature can be
   accessed from the 'toolbox' popup placed on the 'Explorer'
   toolbar.
+: NewsLeecher now fully supports networked folder paths for
   downloading and Repair'n'Extract operations.
+: Clicking a 'folder' bookmark on the NewsLeecher File Explorer
   tab, while holding down the CTRL or Shift key, will open the
   bookmarked folder in a Windows Explorer window, instead of the
   internal file explorer window.
*: Lots of smaller graphical user interface inconsistencies have
   been corrected.
*: The "Automatic Backup" feature now also backups the state of
   the Repair'n'Extract sets.
*: When launching, NewsLeecher can now detect whether the main
   settings file, "setup.dat", is corrupted. If it is,
   instructions on how to restore a "setup.dat" backup (new backup
   feature described above), will be shown to the end-user.
*: The CPU usage has been decreased dramatically under certain
   circumstances, when updating groups. Especially noticable
   when updating picture groups.
*: The speed of the "Smart Select" feature has been improved
   several hundred percent over the speed in previous releases.
*: Improved error checking performed by Repair'n'Extract.
*: Many small improvements. (More data stored in main setup.dat
   settings file, instead of using multiple separate files)
!: Fixed bug where Repair'n'Extract would (rarely) unpause
   incorrect PAR2 repair files in the download queue, in case many
   PAR2 sets with almost similar named were queued for RnE.
!: Fixed bug where the 'Export to NZB' option didn't always work
   when exporting headers which had just been received from the
   usenet:
   http://www.newsleecher.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=16465
!: Lots of smaller bugfixes here and there. (Connections Panel
   couldn't always be resized, better unicode support, etc.)

November 15, 2019

We are currently making some major upgrades to the SuperSearch engine. Optimizing the code and cleaning up a lot of spam postings, to make room for much more retention.
Unfortunately, an optimized build of the engine, caused SuperSearch to freeze for some hours, so the service could not be used.

Also, though unrelated, we had a temporary issue with our payment gateway, causing problems for new customers signing up for a NewsLeecher account and for current customers, who wanted to update credit card info via the NewsLeecher "Members Area".

Both of these issues have been fixed now. Sorry for the inconvenience.

October 20, 2019

During the next few days, we are moving the NewsLeecher website and the SuperSearch search service, to new, much more powerful, servers.

While the move is on-going, there might be times where the NewsLeecher website is not accessible. This issue should solve itself, within a couple of hours, as the new NewsLeecher domain IP address gets fully propagated.

Also, if you have problems getting in contact with the SuperSearch search service, from within the NewsLeecher application, please try restarting NewsLeecher and see if that helps.
If it doesn't, please conctact NewsLeecher support.

Sorry for the temporary issues, but we have to make the upgrades now, to make sure we can keep the services up-to-date in the future, in regards to SuperSearch speed, retention, etc.
