Software Update: NewsLeecher 4.0 Beta 17

Monday, version 4.0 beta 17 of NewsLeecher was released. With this program it is possible to download files from newsgroups in a simple way. The program supports nzb files, has a so-called super search, and can automatically check downloaded files for integrity and completeness and then extract them independently. New in this release is the option to set the maximum number of headers that can be retrieved from a newsgroup. The full changelog of this release looks like this:

New features:

  • Implemented a feature that makes it possible to fetch a user specified number of headers in subscribed groups.

Improved feature:

  • It’s now possible to unsubscribe groups from the groups subscription listview context menu.

Fixed bugs:

  • Fixed a serious bug that caused recent betas of the NewsLeecher V4 series to incorrectly parse dates of headers from the month of May.
  • SuperSearching didn’t work when clicking SuperSearch bookmarks, if the advanced nerdy tweak feature “SuperSearch Single Click Search” feature was set to false.
