Newsleecher V8 Beta Release - Timeline

Post by Seeker04 » Tue Apr 18, 2017 11:06 pm

Currently using Newsleecher V8 Beta 1 Unofficial Forum Release 03, on a Windows 7, 32bit system currently, that allows great download speeds via SSL, but has quite a few errors generated.

Any word on when the official Beta 1 will be deployed, or even a Forum Release 04 (FR4) to test? 8-[

Thanks for the quick reply scuba! Looking forward to testing the latest version when available. Also, I noticed the forums look has changed, looks good.

I agree, I didn't like the change originally of the look either, but once you start using it, you get used to it. (Much like using Windows 7, and then trying Windows 10 for the first time, it grows on you as you use it). :D

I agree that SSL speeds were the big key for me to switch to test V8.0 Beta Unofficial Release Forum #03, as I couldn't saturate my 150/15 ISP line, but now I can. 8)

Also, really like the new search feature, and granularity of it as it helps to find exactly what you are looking for.

One thing I have noticed is that that search tab is missing, after you have done a particular search, and with up to 3250 articles to choose from, sometimes you just want to do a quick search inside that search, rather than recreate the whole search with the new item you now want to search for. Does that make sense :?:

I like this new Interface. Is there a way to move the tabs around, example I want to put "Queue" before "Manager" tab.

Edit:
I found where to do it. You have to press the lock button to unlock the toolbar

It's been over a week now, and I have not seen anything new on V8 of Newsleecher, either on the timelines, when a Beta will be released, or if there is another unofficial release available to fix some of the current bugs.

You mentioned 10 days ago that something would be posted on your website about V8 that day. Do you have a new timeline for that posting?

this is from Spiril:
"Just a quick update to let you know that the first beta of NewsLeecher V8 will be out within the next week or two. Besides a completely rewritten leeching engine, that can dramatically improve the download performance for users with very fast Internet connections, NewsLeecher V8 also features an all new UI that is fully high-dpi compatible, so the UI is 100% crisp, even on 4K displays. Also lots of other changes and improvements coming up."

I wonder if the new v8 Beta can be run separately from v7?

Looking forward to test it out.
Best Regards

No we really don't recommend that. But before an upgrade always backup the NewsLeecher folders if you want to roll-back to an earlier version.
