Re: NL 7 b12 - Can't register

Like others here, updating to b12 reverted NL to trial mode and wouldn't recognize my password. I reinstalled b11 and updated my registration successfully. However, I can no longer login to the members area . Requested a password reset a while ago (via the site) and still waiting for the email to ar...

Crap Filter

What would make NewsLeecher really stand out and could save a lot of time is the ability to automatically filter out crap which cannot be easily defined with a search string or even a regular expression. There's got to be some heuristics that can determine that everything in this screenshot is usele...

Auto-Arrange New Headers in Tabs

It would be great if users could define a certain number of filters or keyword lists and have all new headers arranged in tabs based on these filters (one tab per filter or list). For example, the first tab would show all headers that contain the names of any of my favorite TV shows which had previo...

Thanks, it is working correctly now.

v6.0 Beta 2 reports its version as Beta 1

While the window title correctly shows v6.0 Beta 2, the News page shows it as Beta 1 and upon every startup it claims that a newer beta is available.

Another 3.95b1 problem!

I registered successfully from within NL and the About dialog shows that I have a full unexpired license incl. SuperSearch access. And yet when I'm in SuperSearch it thinks I am a trial user and doesn't let me download anything. Any ideas?

3.95b1 works fine when started via the start menu shortcut, but fails when started from within Launchy (http://www.launchy.net/). This is the first time that I come across a compatibility issue with Launchy, which is a program I use regularly to start dozens of different applications. Operating syst...

The same problem occurs when launching NewsLeecher with Launchy - a popular launcher for Windows. Opening the exact same shortcut from the Windows start menu works fine.

Yet another confirmation: Vista Ultimate 32 bit, UAC is on, program crashes immediately. Older versions work fine.

Once again, a beta is released (beta 10 this time) without fixing the multiple-server bug. Since 3.9 beta 7 all NL releases show things like "60 of 20 parts" and the wrong size of all messages when downloading from more than one news server. Why bother reporting bugs here if you're just going to rep...

Since beta 7: Message size is wrong when multiple servers are used

Please fix the bug that's described in detail here. It was introduced in 3.9 beta 7 and still exists in 3.9 beta 9 despite being repeatedly reported.

New beta, and bug is still there

Beta 9 is out, and yet, the same annoying bug from beta 7 is still there.

Why do we even bother reproducing and reporting bugs here, if two months and two releases later it is still not addressed?! It worked fine until beta 7, and then you broke it. Please fix it already.

How much longer?

Not sure if you realize but this bug, which was introduced in 3.9 b7 and then was not fixed in b8, is a serious blocker. It completely messes up size filters and makes NL much less convenient to use with more than one news server. Please, fix it already.
