NewsLeecher 7.0 Beta 1
#: Lots of changes in this beta!. It is highly recommended to make
a backup of your NewsLeecher settings and data before
installing. The settings / data folder is usually located in
the following path : %AppData%\NewsLeecher
+: Implemented a "Destination Folders" system, that makes it easy
to associate specific groups, SuperSearch and SuperLeech
entries with certain download and RAR archive extract folders.
The feature supports a simple variable system, that makes it
easy to set a, say, download folder, to :
... Where <Group> gets replaced with the Usenet group of the
article to download, and <Subject> gets replaced with the
articles subject line.
The available variable names are listed on the "Destinations
Folder" dialog in the NewsLeecher application.
We are looking into implementing more variables.
+: Auto-detection of misnamed PAR2 files.
Repair & Extract will now automatically check newly leeched
files to see if they are misnamed PAR2 set files, belonging to
one of the PAR2 sets available in the Repair & Extract
listview. If a match is found, the file will automatically be
renamed so it gets properly processed by Repair & Extract.
+: It is now possible to manually initiate a PAR2 misname check,
by activating the context menu of a PAR2 set in the Repair &
Extract listview and select "Detect Misnamed".
+: Implemented a SuperLeech "Foreign Language Exclusion Filter".
This filter makes it very easy to command SuperLeech to ignore
articles, if certain language specific substrings are found in
the article subjects. It can be setup from the SuperLeech entry
+: Added feature to remove redundant NewsLeecher settings folders
and files from the NewsLeecher settings folder.
The feature can be accessed from :
Toolbox -> Advanced -> Remove Redundant Files / Folders
*: To conform better with standard Windows controls behavior,
double clicking a combo box ( filter box ) now selects the
clicked word, instead of clearing all input text. To clear all
input text, press [ Esc ] instead.
*: LOTS of visual and non-visual changes and improvements.
!: Many smaller bug fixed.
-: Removed the "720i" video quality from the SuperLeech entry
setup dialog, as that quality setting is rarely used.
