NewsLeecher Version History

See what has changed so far, during the history of NewsLeecher.

#: To celebrate the first official beta of NewsLeecher V6.0, we have lowered the price of our all-inclusive "Ready to Go" Usenet package to $11.99/mo. The new price applies to both current and new "Ready to Go" accounts. --------------------------------------------------------------- The "Ready to Go" package includes : --------------------------------------------------------------- With the "Ready to Go" package, *everything* is included! So there is no need to pay for 3rd party Usenet access anymore. ------------------------------------------------------------- 1. Unlimited Usenet Access w. almost 1800 days of retention. 2. Unlimited SuperSearch Search Service Access. 3. Extended access to our brand new SuperLeech Service. Read more about the new SuperLeech Service below ... ------------------------------------------------------------- --------------------------------------------------------------- +: --------------------------------------------------------------- -- Major Feature Addition - SuperLeech Automation Service -- -- --------------------------------------------------------------- This initial beta release of NewsLeecher V6.0, implements a new NewsLeecher service called "SuperLeech". The SuperLeech service is based on the SuperSearch search service, and allows one to setup search queries that will automatically find and leech wanted articles off the Usenet, as soon as possible, after they have been made available online. Currently, SuperLeech implements 3 different service modes : ------------------------ 1. "Leech [ All ] " Mode ------------------------ This is the most basic mode. Using this mode, SuperLeech will leech *everything* matching the specified search query. This mode should only be used, if you search for very specific subjects, or you will end up having the SuperLeech service leeching way too many articles. ------------------------- 2. "Leech [ Once ] " Mode ------------------------- Using this mode, SuperLeech will leech the first matching article ( or article collection ), that gets posted to the Usenet, after the SuperLeech entry has been activated. When a match has occurred, the SuperLeech service will make sure that no further articles are matched. ----------------------------- 3. "Leech [ Episodes ] " Mode ----------------------------- This mode has been implemented for users, who are interested in series episodes. It can be used to automatically download new episodes for wanted series, almost as soon as they get posted to the Usenet. Say you are interested in a podcast series called "My Favorite Podcast Show". To automatically download new episodes of the series, when they become available, simply setup a SuperLeech entry with the search query set to "My Favorite Podcast Show" (wo. quotes) and the search method set to "Leech [ Episodes ]". SuperLeech will then detect and leech the new episodes, almost as soon as they get posted to the Usenet. Furthermore, SuperLeech will make sure that already leeched episodes are not leeched again, to avoid wasted bandwidth. Note that the "Leech [ Episodes ]" mode, is using certain standard season and episode specific substrings in the article subjects (S##E##, ##x## and more) to detect episodes properly, so those substrings must be present for the mode to function. In most cases, though, that should not be a problem, as the majority of posted episode related articles will have that info included, as standard. +: --------------------------------------------------------------- -- Larger Feature Addition - NewsLeecher Password Manager -- -- --------------------------------------------------------------- NewsLeecher now implements an archive extract password manager. The manager can be accessed from the "Repair & Extract" toolbar and enables one to specify passwords that the Repair & Extract feature should try to use against password protected archives. +: Implemented support for auto importing NZB passwords into the new "Repair & Extract" password manager, mentioned above. NewsLeecher will detect the passwords, by looking at the imported NZB filename, and auto extract / import passwords specified by the following format: "nzb filename here {{[password]}}.nzb +: -- Spam Detection Addition -- NewsLeecher can now be setup to detect "EXE in RAR" archives. Those EXE ( executable *.exe ) files are almost always viruses. Spam detection can be setup here: Settings -> Leech Tweaks -> Spam Detection +: -- Spam Detection Addition -- NewsLeecher can now be setup to detect passworded RAR archives. Before marking such archives as spam, NewsLeecher will first try to match the RAR password against the passwords listed in the new "NewsLeecher Password Manager" ( see above ) Spam detection can be setup here: Settings -> Leech Tweaks -> Spam Detection +: -- Spam Detection Addition -- Added an option to show detailed information on Spam Detection in the NewsLeecher log. The log option can be enabled from: Settings -> Leech Tweaks -> Spam Detection +: Added an option to pause the download queue, while "Repair & Extract" is busy with repairing or extracting files. The option can be accessed from : Settings -> Leech Tweaks -> General Leech Tweaks Settings -> Adv. Nerdy Tweaks -> Download Pause While Repair... *: -- Spam Detection -- The spam detection routines in NewsLeecher have been improved a lot, to detect more spam. *: -- Spam Detection / SuperLeech Improvement -- The NewsLeecher article spam detection feature is now integrated with the new SuperLeech service. This means that if a SuperLeech initiated article download is detected as spam, SuperLeech will know that, and ignore the downloaded article and instead start looking for alternative articles to leech. Spam detection can be setup here: Settings -> Leech Tweaks -> Spam Detection *: Many smaller improvements. (Moved the "SuperSearch" append query string from the SuperSearch toolbar and into the SuperSearch settings dialog, etc.) !: Lots of smaller bug fixes.

SuperSearch has been down for several hours due to hardware failure.
We are working on getting it up and running again and expect it functional within the next hour or so.
Very sorry for the inconvenience.

Due to a bug in some new SuperSearch backend code, the SuperSearch service has been down
for periods of time today. We have now reverted the code, so the service is back to working.
Sorry for the inconvenience.

Optimization notice:

We are currently (still) working full time with optimizing the SuperSearch backend, to make searching, indexing and unscrambling faster - and, primarily, optimizations to bump the retention to 10+ (12+ actually) years for all indexed groups.
