If you go to the toolbox dropdown and select "releases", you can download previous versions.
I made a COPY of the C:\Program Files (x86)\NewsLeecher folder - named it NewsLeecher.b3 then reinstalled v8b2 - they are both working from the same Temp/Data/Cache folder and I have had no trouble launching both versions They both CAN NOT run at the same time (simply won't launch). Run fine - one at a time.

Just had to create a new shortcut for the b3 version on my desktop.

To be clear:

When you reinstall v8b2 it will install in C:\Program Files (x86)\NewsLeecher - that is the reason you copy & rename the folder before you reinstall v8b2.

I now have 2 folders in C:\Program Files (x86)

one named

C:\Program Files (x86)\NewsLeecher.b3
(v8b3 version)

and one named

C:\Program Files (x86)\NewsLeecher
(v8b2 version)

BTW: You can also do this to install NL v7 Final - COPY C:\Program Files (x86)\NewsLeecher and rename the new folder to NewsLeecher.b2 and then install NL v7 - put shortcuts for each on the desktop - Run any of the versions (one at a time).
