Software Update: NewsLeecher 4.0 Beta 19

On Friday, version 4.0 beta 19 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. In the previous release, the SuperSearch has been completely revised and now has a retention of a whopping 850 days. In this release, the SuperSearch has been further tweaked and some bug fixes have been made. The full changelog looks like this:

SuperSearch Updates Since Previous Release

    Now that the article retention for the new SuperSearch engine is at 850 days, we’ve bumped the max limit for articles returned by SuperSearch as well. The limit has been bumped from 15000 to 30000 SuperSearch search results. We’ve also improved the SuperSearch indexing turn-around time, so most indexed groups will be updated in realtime (every minute or faster).

Improved feature

  • Many smaller improvements here and there.

Fixed bugs

  • Fixed an issue where the download folder for an article could be set incorrectly, due to a new cross-post groups view feature introduced in the new SuperSearch engine.
  • Fixed bug where the optional posting signature could be garbled when posting a text message.
  • Lots of smaller bug fixes.
