NewsLeecher 7.0 Beta 5
#: This update contains major improvements to the group and queue
cache system. To make these improvements possible, the cache
file format had to be changed a bit. The upgrade to the new
improved format is done automatically by NewsLeecher, but in
case you want to downgrade to an earlier version of NewsLeecher
later on, is it recommended that you make a backup of your
NewsLeecher settings before installing.
+: Added a toggle to let Repair'n'Extract postpone RAR archive
extraction while articles are queued for being downloaded.

*: The download queue now consumes *much less* memory than before.
This is especially noticable when the download queue contains
lots of articles. We made a test with a large download queue, and
saw memory usage go from 750MB to 55BM in this version.
*: Groups and queue cache cleanup code is now ~1000% faster than
before. This is especially noticable when the download queue
contains lots of articles.
*: The settings dialog is now resizable.
*: The "Destination Folder" setup dialog is now resizable.
*: Many smaller improvements ( Removed small interface freeze
when scrolling through the settings dialog. Avg. RAR extract
speed is now shown in log. The initial form size is now
made larger than it was previsouly. Etc. )
!: Many smaller fixes and improvements to the new Repair & Extract

of the download queue to corrupt, if the download paths for
queued entries were manually changed.
!: Fixed bug where NewsLeecher sometimes didn't rename misnamed
PAR2 set files, if the files were downloaded before the PAR2
set was added to the "Repair and Extract" queue.
!: Fixed bug where the "filename" filter on the "Explorer" tab
sometimes didn't work properly :
