Software update: SABnzbd 0.7.8

Version 0.7.8 of SABnzbd has been released. With this program files from usenet can be downloaded. The open source application is available for Windows, Linux and OS X. The program offers the possibility to load nzb files, after which the correct files are picked from usenet. With the built-in web interface it is possible to operate the program via a web browser. New in version 0.7.8 is, among other things, that the program can wait when started until a configured external hard drive is actually present and that a download can be aborted if it becomes clear that not all parts are available.

New features

  • Use “category” and “password” meta-data in NZB files (Provided by some indexers)
  • Option to abort download when it is clear that not enough data is available (For removed posts it will be faster than pre-download check)
  • Add “Abort” option for encryption detection
  • Removed articles are now listed separately in download report
  • Special option “wait_for_dfolder”, enables waiting for external temp download folder at startup

Bug fixes

  • Fix problem with %fn substitution in Sorting
  • Pre-download check did not work with all servers
  • Fix missing Retry link for “Out of retention” jobs
  • API function “addfile” now accepts “nzbname” parameter for ZIP/RAR files with one NZB
  • Prevent retries when an NZB with just samples is retrieved from an indexer (and you had the “do not download samples” option enabled)
