These improvements fixes the most significant performance bottleneck remaining in NewsLeecher. *: This release uses less system resources when downloading articles. *: The overall performance in NewsLeecher has been improved due to internal low-level optimizations. *: The "Delete From Cache" feature is now 1000% + faster. *: Various smaller improvements. (Repair'n'Extract is now faster at handling files under some circumstances, etc.) *: Small improvements to the 'Collections Pattern Detection' code, used by NewsLeecher when figuring out which articles should be put in which collections. *: The "Group Cleaning" dialog, occasionally shown during close down, can now be turned off if wanted. !: Fixed bug where the NewsLeecher hint windows flickered whenever lines were written to the log window. !: Fixed bug where NewsLeecher sometimes miscalculated the 'minimum disk space' settings, and paused the queue unnecessarily. !: Fixed bug where Repair'n'Extract would sometimes delete downloaded articles, even if Repair'n'Extract unpack / move / copy operations has failed. !: The 'Move Small Articles to Queue Top' setting was sometimes ignored. Fixed.

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 :)
