NewsLeecher 7.0 Beta 6

#: This release makes format changes to the NewsLeecher data
   files, so it is recommended to backup your NewsLeecher settings
   and data files before installing, in case you want to downgrade
   later on.
#: Note that this release does not check / fix renamed PAR2 set
   files as default. To enable the feature, see the "new feature"
   description just below.
+: Implemented toggle to turn on / off the Repair & Extract
   feature that checks PAR2 sets for renamed files.
   It can be toggled from :
   Settings -> Repair & Extract -> Fix Renamed PAR2 Files
   NOTE: PAR2 "rename checking / fixing" is NOT enabled as
   default, because it is a feature that is used only by a
   minority of the NewsLeecher user base and thus cause
   unnecessary extra load on the CPU while processing.
+: The NZB import destination folder tag "" can now
   also be applied to RAR extract folders, instead of only to
   download folders. The tag can be applied for NZB imports from :
   Settings -> NZB Files -> NZB Download ... -> NZB Import ...
+: Implemented function to force cleanup of Usenet group cache
   files, if wanted. Cleanup will remove expired data from the
   files. The function can be accessed by right clicking a
   subscribed group and select "Cleaning -> Cleanup Group
   Files" from the popup.
+: Added true / false switch to turn on / off usage of a user
   specified custom font in the listviews. The switch can be
   accessed from :
   Settings -> Adv. Tweaks -> Listview Font Overwrite
+: Implemented a function to completely reset the cached articles
   in all subscribed groups, in case they contain data corruption.
   The function can be accessed from :
   Toolbox -> Advanced -> Reset Usenet Group Caches
*: Much improved group cache compatibility checking. From this
   version and on, NewsLeecher is able to detect and prevent
   loading of incompatible cache files, causing corruption and
   bugs. Cached files originating from earlier versions of
   NewsLeecher can may still contain corrupt data though, so if
   you experiece article corruption bugs while browsing Usenet
   groups, try wiping the group cache and reload group
   articles, using this ( or a newer when available ) release
   of NewsLeecher.
*: Improved queue handling code to decrease the time it takes for
   NewsLeecher to detect whether or not a currently downloading
   RAR archive set is legit or should be marked as SPAM.
*: Further improved the Usenet group cache cleanup function so
   it doesn't use any extra memory at all during cleanup. This
   is important when cleaning groups containing 250+ million
   article parts or "out of memory" exceptions might have
   occurred.
*: The top entry and the selected entry in a SuperSearch result
   set is now remembered when another result set is activated,
   and re-set again when the result set is re-activated.
*: Fixed bug introduced in one of the recent betas, where the
   posisiton of the NewsLeecher window was sometimes reset after
   relaunch on multi-monitor systems.
*: Listview selection rectangle colors changed to differ from
   drag'n'drop selection colors.
*: Smaller improvements here and there. ( The speed graph on the
   tray icon looks a bit better now, improvements to installer,
   etc. )
!: Fixed bug introduced in the previous beta release, where
   the cache in specific Usenet groups would sometimes corrupt
   when updating headers, while one or more subject/poster ignore
   filters were in use.
!: Fixed bug where the "Please Wait" dialog would sometimes hang
   after checking PAR2 sets for renamed files.
!: Fixed "Please Wait" dialog, so it doesn't popup up in front
   of windows not associated with NewsLeecher.
!: Fixed bug where the destination folder "" tag was
   forgotten for queued articles after restarting NewsLeecher.
!: Fixed bug "14t11o05n" that was triggered when browsing groups
   containing articles with empty subject lines :
   http://www.newsleecher.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=117272
!: Fixed bug triggered by Repair & Extract handling zero-filled
   PAR2 files.

November 15, 2019

We are currently making some major upgrades to the SuperSearch engine. Optimizing the code and cleaning up a lot of spam postings, to make room for much more retention.
Unfortunately, an optimized build of the engine, caused SuperSearch to freeze for some hours, so the service could not be used.

Also, though unrelated, we had a temporary issue with our payment gateway, causing problems for new customers signing up for a NewsLeecher account and for current customers, who wanted to update credit card info via the NewsLeecher "Members Area".

Both of these issues have been fixed now. Sorry for the inconvenience.

October 20, 2019

During the next few days, we are moving the NewsLeecher website and the SuperSearch search service, to new, much more powerful, servers.

While the move is on-going, there might be times where the NewsLeecher website is not accessible. This issue should solve itself, within a couple of hours, as the new NewsLeecher domain IP address gets fully propagated.

Also, if you have problems getting in contact with the SuperSearch search service, from within the NewsLeecher application, please try restarting NewsLeecher and see if that helps.
If it doesn't, please conctact NewsLeecher support.

Sorry for the temporary issues, but we have to make the upgrades now, to make sure we can keep the services up-to-date in the future, in regards to SuperSearch speed, retention, etc.
