Re: 8.0 beta 1 queue not downloading

No good for me, still have to revert to 7 final to get to work. But keep coming up with any ideas Same here. I spent about an hour with the 8.0 beta, recognized its several shortcomings, and reverted back to V7 GA. I do find it somewhat concerning that there have been no comments from Spiril or Scu...

Re: 8.0 beta 1 queue not downloading

Interesting. I'll definitely try it, but I'd rather see this and other reported problems fixed as quickly as possible. I believe that is the purpose behind releasing a Beta to the field - identifying the last set of bugs, and getting them fixed asap.

Re: 8.0 beta 1 queue not downloading

It appears to be a common problem. On the positive side, when downloading works, the throughput appears to be faster than with V7.

Re: Put ALL V8 Beta 1 Bug Reports HERE.

Two bugs that have already been reported by others...
1) Downloading will freeze for no apparent reason
2) It is not possible to close the application in an orderly fashion, if downloading is frozen. The only option is to terminate the application using Task Manager

Beta Support

While it was great to see the first official V8 Beta released this week, I'm concerned about the level of support that we will see. I state this concern based on our experience over the last few years. Several of us (including myself) have already reported problems. I get that it's a Beta (my backgr...

V8 Beta Stability Issues

Yup, I know it's a beta, but...

- Under Windows 10, the queue regularly freezes, and the app takes forever to process an orderly close, I generally have to go into task manager and kill it.

Re: Newsleecher V8 Beta Release - Timeline

I think most of us in this forum would agree that actions speak much louder than words. Thus far, there have been many, many words, yet no actions. Of course, the action I am referring to is making a long, long awaited Beta available to this community.

Re: Newsleecher V8 Beta Release - Timeline

As I recall, the last few responses from Scuba et al have been that the beta was still being tested. But, why wouldn't that testing include us, the most historically committed users of Newsleecher? Why haven't we heard from others about their testing results? Again, I can only surmise that V8 is vap...

Re: Newsleecher Replacement?

Same here. Even if a "beta" of NL8 were to come out tomorrow, Scuba and crew have lost every ounce of credibility that they may have ever had. As a customer, I'm not inclined to take any more risks.

Crickets. It would appear that Spiril and Scuba don't care what happens here, and we are on our own.

Re: Newsleecher V8 Beta Release - Timeline

A legitimate beta version should be posted on the software section of this site, as has always been the case in the past. Otherwise, any suggestion by the admins that a beta exists is fake news. Personally, I doubt we'll ever see one.
