NewsLeecher 6.5 Beta 2
+: Implemented support for custom user interface scaling in
NewsLeecher. This feature is great if you'd, for example,
like the text in NewsLeecher to be a little larger than
standard. The setting can be accessed from :
Settings -> Adv. Nerdy Tweaks -> GUI Custom Scaling
+: Implemented a launch check to make sure external helper files
used by NewsLeecher ( RAR handling, PAR2 handling, etc. ) are
available and up-to-date. ( see NewsLeecher log at launch for
*: Added possibility to quickly enter a password into the
NewsLeecher "Archive Password Manager" from the "Leech Specify"

fewer 'false matching' articles.
*: Updated the RAR handling helper files in NewsLeecher for better
performance and full support for the new RAR version 5 format.
*: Improved support for long Windows paths (more than 255
characters) in NewsLeecher.
*: Reworked some of the core SuperLeech code to optimize
performance and memory usage.

listviews as been changed. To change the entry space, click the
"View Compacting" button in the lower right corner of the
NewsLeecher main window.
*: Many smaller improvements ( Added Alt+M shortcut for password
manager, re-implemented "listview font name" and "listview
font size" nerdy tweak settings, etc. )
