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.

Re: New version?

I recall predicting some time ago that a beta of a new version would not arrive before the end of March. It saddens me to admit that I was right.

Re: New version?

Yup, the vast majority of us would agree that there is no new version of NewsLeecher forthcoming. Besides, given how long it has taken thus far with various vacuous promises along the way (your statement of 15 months is probably fairly accurate), what confidence could we possibly have that any new v...

Re: Newsleecher V8 Beta Release - Timeline

I'd like to say that's great, but if it hasn't been posted as a publicly-available beta, then what's the point?

Re: New version?

I absolutely agree. It is obvious that Scuba and his colleagues are dishonest and incompetent. We will never see a v8, and we will never really know why it has taken so long (if in fact it was ever truly being developed).

Re: Newsleecher V8 Beta Release - Timeline

While I would dearly love to be proven wrong, I predict that there will be no V8 (beta or otherwise) before the end of March at the earliest.

Re: Newsleecher V8 Beta Release - Timeline

At this point, I can't imagine a new version forthcoming in the future. Given the amount of time that has transpired, and the consistent stream of false promises, one really has to question the competency of those who are designing and coding an alleged NewsLeecher V8.

Re: New version?

Agreed. At the end of the day, we are all customers, and as such, we have expectations. Obviously, those expectations are not being met. A lack of transparency and minimal communication are the issues that have frustrated me the most with regard to NewsLeecher.

Re: Newsleecher V8 Beta Release - Timeline

I can only conclude that either there is no beta version at this time, or it is still so buggy that there would be a flood of problems reported, if it was made available for download. Very disappointing, considering how much time continues to fly by.

Re: Newsleecher V8 Beta Release - Timeline

Astounding, actually.

Scuba et al - how can we have any faith and confidence in V8 when it has taken you almost a year to solve problems that you originally thought were simple?

Re: 7.0 Beta - Destination Folders missing features

If it matters... I 2nd that, please bring this feature back. Agreed. I'm really trying to understand how the features in 7.0 are an improvement over 6.5 So far, it doesn't seem like like the features in 7.0 make life easier. For the time being, I've reverted back to 6.5, and am quite happy with the...

Re: v7.0 Beta 1: NZB => Directory path

I'm in total agreement that this functionality is actually regressing from what what is in 6.x With 6.x, downloads BY DEFAULT went into a folder with the same name as the usenet group. That actually became helpful for nzb files, where the target group in the nzb file could be different from the post...

Re: Groups list

Is there a way to go back to the previous groups listing on the Articles tab? The new dropdown box is so cumbersome to that this beta is unusable for anyone with more than a couple groups. Absolutely agreed! I've just installed this latest beta as an attempt to move beyond v4.0. I'm not sure what w...
