NewsLeecher 4.0 Beta 4

#: This release uses a new format for setup and configuration
   files. NewsLeecher will automatically detect earlier formats
   of the setup and configuration files and upgrade to the new
   format without any user intervention. But note that older
   versions of NewsLeecher will not be able to identify the new
   format, so downgrading will reset most settings. It is
   therefore recommended that you backup your NewsLeecher
   installation before installing this release, just in case
   anything goes wrong.
+: Reintroduced a lot of the features which were removed in the
   first NewsLeecher version 4.0 betas. The reintroduced features
   include listview font name and size configuration, listview
   entry height configuration, turning on / off the speedgraph
   background logo etc..
+: Added 'Notify on New Final Release' and 'Notify on New Beta
   Release' checkboxes to the news-page toolbar.
+: The Repair'n'Extract status column now shows the extraction
   speed for extracting archives in MB/s
+: Lots of 'advanced user' tweaks have been added to the
   setup dialog. The settings can be accessed from 'Setup ->
   Advanced Nerd Tweaks'. The new tweaks include listview entry
   color shade settings for sorted columns and collections, the
   possibility to set the size of the speedbar on the tray icon,
   etc..
*: NewsLeecher uses a new format for the setup and configuration
   files. Reading from, and writing to, the new format is between
   10 and 1000 times faster than with the old format. And as
   NewsLeecher reads and writes a lot of settings during
   operations, this change will have a positive impact on the
   overall performance.
*: Totally re-organized the setup dialog, to make it much easier
   to configure and run NewsLeecher from scratch. All of the non-
   essential options and settings have been moved to a new setup
   section called 'Advanced Nerd Tweaks'. NewsLeecher will run
   fine without playing around with this new section, but the
   settings and options can be tweaked to optimize and personalize
   NewsLeecher further if wanted.
   Due to this new section, the rest of the setup dialog,
   containing more essential NewsLeecher settings and options, has
   been greatly simplified.
*: Repair'n'Extract will now extract archives ASAP, instead of
   waiting until all Repair'n'Extract entries have been verified.
*: Improved the 'Filters Dialog' by replacing the filters listview
   control with a memo control. The memo control allows much
   faster editing of filters, aswell as batch copy/paste
   operations.
*: All 'Group Browsing' settings and filters have been moved to
   the setup dialog. The 'Group Browsing' setup dialog can be
   accessed fast by clicking the 'Settings' button on the 'Group
   Browsing' toolbar.
*: Improved the easy-of-use of the download counter, located on
   the status bar.
*: Lots of minor improvements. (Changed the standard pixel height
   of listview entries, new graphics in setup dialog, etc.)
!: Fixed serious bug introduced in previous betas, where
   NewsLeecher sometimes totally screw up the download destination
   folder path when downloads were initiated from NZB files and
   the 'Download to Groupname Folder' option was used at the same
   time.
!: Fixed bug where the NewsLeecher article header retrieval
   function would skip certain headers, because their subjects
   used a format which wasn't recognized by NewsLeecher.
!: Fixed bug where NewsLeecher would sometimes pause the transfer
   queue automatically when the scheduler is active:

!: Fixed bug introduced in previous betas, where Repair'n'Extract
   would sometimes delete PAR Split sets.
!: Fixed bug where the queue 'Change Download Folder' feature
   didn't always work properly.
!: Fixed bug introduced in previous betas, where the 'Export to
   NZB' feature would freeze NewsLeecher, if the 'ZIP Compress
   exported NZB File' option was on.
!: Fixed bug where some of the group browser filters would
   occasionally cause the group browser listview to freeze:

!: Fixed bug where the time label on the bandwidth graph sometimes
   showed an incorrect timespan text while the graph was resized.
!: Numerous smaller bugfixes.

[ 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.

April 23, 2019

Just a quick update to let you know that we are still working hard on finalizing the first beta of NewsLeecher V8.0. There is a single larger issue with the newly implemented threaded leeching engine, that we are currently taking care of. When that's done, we'll release!
