Software update: SABnzbd 4.0.3

Spread the love

Version 4.0.3 of SABnzbd has been released. SABnzbd allows files to be downloaded from usenet. This open source program is available for Windows, Linux and macOS, and offers the ability to load nzb files, after which the appropriate files are grabbed from Usenet. The built-in web interface makes it possible to operate the program via a web browser. The following changes and improvements have been made in this release:

Bug fixes and changes

  • Direct Unpack could get stuck.
  • Sorters could not be modified.
  • Season Sorting did not respect desired capitalization.
  • Crashes could occur in the Downloader on timeouts.
  • Prevent extra job directory in case of folder-only Sorting.
  • UUencoded articles could fail to decode.
  • Windows: Windows Service would fail to start on legacy release.
  • macOS: Failed to launch on macOS Sonoma Beta.

Breaking change

  • The Parameters setting of a Notification Script is now passed as
    environment variable SAB_NOTIFICATION_PARAMETERS instead of as a
    command line parameter. This prevents the possibility of remote code
    execution on systems exposed to the internet without a username/password.
    If you use nzb-notify you need to update it to the latest version.

Bug fixes and changes

  • Disabling a server during download did not stop it from downloading.
  • Show last line of post-processing script output even if it failed.
  • Prevent crash during Deobfuscate on non-unique paths.
  • Files that could not be parsed were removed from the Watched Folder.
  • Warn if the file system does not support unicode or long filenames.
  • Warn if Scripts Folder is inside the application directory.
  • Prevent output buffering of Python post-processing scripts.
  • The PKG-INFO file was removed from the src release.
  • Correctly decode partially malformed UUencoded posts.
  • macOS: Tray icon could not be disabled.
