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
#: 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

NewsLeecher to detect whether or not a currently downloading
RAR archive set is legit or should be marked as SPAM.

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
