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.)

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.

NewsLeecher V8.0 Beta 1 is now officially released!

There are too many changes to list here, so please click the "What's New" link below for the complete version history.

[ What's New ]  -  [ Direct Download ]

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.
