V8 is in the works, i am sure.
It is. A lot of changes has been done to the supersearch for many reasons and one was : be ready to version 8.

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.

I think that the latest message in application indicate that changes are made to SuperSearch because Newsleecher v8 Beta is not in state to be published...

For me it's a try to keep active the Supersearch subscribtions but not a Newsleecher v8 Beta publication announce.

How about January 5? That's the date Spiril posted a link to a beta, Newsleecher 8.0 Beta 1 unofficial forum release #4. Don't expect perfection. It's a beta, and an unofficial one at that. For me it often throws error messages, disconnects in the middle of a download and sometimes requires a shutdown and restart to continue. But when a SuperSearch Deobfuscated download succeeds, NL8 renames it and the directory it's saved to. With NL7 that has to be done manually. So try out the beta if you like but keep NL7 handy.

Thanks Spiril for Newsleecher 8.0 Beta 1 UFR4, unfortunately it has taken over one and a half years to release this to more Alpha_Beta testers :roll: (was using NL8.0 Beta1 UFR3 for the longest time), but better late than never :wink: Will submit issues, and errors as required, seems a little more stable so far than UFR3 :D

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?

No it's also for a version 8.

My license needs to be renewed, but I'm reluctant, because last time you told me that the new version 8 would be released quickly, that was one year ago. I will renew my license once version 8 with improvements is released.

For those who are using Newsleecher v7 with a product like NZBdrone, you can use the following powershell script to unobfuscate the downloaded files.
You must configure Newsleecher to copy and keep the nzb files to a protected location and the folders variables, and perhaps the files extensions, in the header of the script :

-BEGIN-

$ROOT_PATH="D:\DOWN\"
$MKV_PATH=$ROOT_PATH+"Extractions\"
$NZB_PATH=$ROOT_PATH+"Imported\"
$MKV_SPEC="*.mkv"
$NZB_SPEC="*.nzb"

function Get-Filename
{
Param(
[parameter(mandatory=$false)]
[string]$Filespec = ".\*.nzb",
[parameter(mandatory=$true)]
[string]$Pattern
)

$FileInfo = Get-ChildItem -Recurse $Filespec | Where-Object { Select-String $Pattern $_ -Quiet }
if([string]::IsNullOrEmpty($FileInfo) -eq $false) {
$RetValue = $FileInfo.Name.Remove($FileInfo.Name.LastIndexOf('.'))
} else {
$RetValue = $null
}
$RetValue
}

$MkvFilesSpec = $MKV_PATH+$MKV_SPEC
$NzbFilesSpec = $NZB_PATH+$NZB_SPEC

$MkvFiles = Get-ChildItem -Path $MkvFilesSpec

foreach($File in $MkvFiles) {
$FoundFileName = $null
$ParentFilePath = Convert-Path($File.PSParentPath)
$OriginalFileName = $File.Basename
$FoundFileName = Get-Filename -Filespec $NzbFilesSpec -Pattern $OriginalFileName
if([string]::IsNullOrEmpty($FoundFileName) -eq $false) {
[string]$NewFileName = $ParentFilePath+"\"+$FoundFileName+$File.Extension
$NewFileName
$File.MoveTo($NewFileName)
}
}

-END-
