NewsLeecher Version History
See what has changed so far, during the history of NewsLeecher.

NewsLeecher 1.0 Beta 25

+: Added new 'Smart Select' feature to the active group / server
   search windows. The feature will select all articles with
   subject lines partially matching the subject line of the first
   selected article. (Shortcut is Alt+S)
+: Implemented full support for Regular Expression searching when
   using the active group text search filters. To enable the
   RegExp searching, go to Options / Advanced and check the
   'Use regular expression searches' checkbox.
+: Implemented support for NewsLeecher to execute up to 4
   configurable command-lines. The command-lines may contain
   NewsLeecher specific variables and can quickly be launched
   by using the Alt+F9 - Alt+F12 hotkeys. Usage instructions and
   examples: http://www.newsleecher.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1587
+: Implemented a Poster kill-filter function that makes it
   possible to ignore incoming article headers posted by posters
   with specific names and/or email addresses. The filter can be
   setup from the options dialog under 'Filter' settings.
*: The 'Perform action when download queue is empty' feature now
   ignores 'paused' entries in the queue.
*: Articles from servers with wrong message-id's are now treated
   as 'missing' articles. This will prevent article corruption in
   cases where there are 2 or more download servers available.
*: Many small improvements in this release.
!: NewsLeecher didn't calculate the percentage of garbage in the
   group caches correctly. This has been fixed.
!: Fixed bug where articles would sometimes hang in the queue if
   they were downloaded from groups that didn't exist on low
   priority servers.
!: Sometimes it wasn't possible to stop/start server searches.
   This should work now. (Didn't get fixed in beta 24)
!: Fixed bug (ID:900j209d) (again) - 'Cannot focus a
   disabled or invisible window' bug.
!: Fixed bug (ID:kljlkja). Rarely showed up when receiving
   group headers.
!: Many small/medium bug fixes.

Quick NewsLeecher status update:

The SuperSearch service was down for some time yesterday, due to a bug in the SuperSearch frontend software. The bug has now beed fixed, and the search/indexer/deobfuscator service is running again. Sorry for the inconvenience.

The NewsLeecher forums have been under pretty heavy spam attacks during the last several days. Due to this, we will make some anti-spam updates to the forum software over the next few days, so expect a bit of forum downtime. Hopefully, though, the updates will help prevent these massive amount of spam from hitting the forums in the future. But who knows, the spammers are tricky bastards, so we'll have to wait and see.

NewsLeecher V8.0 Beta 2 is currently being worked on. We are implementing a "Super Search" result search-filter and a files/folders search-filter for the "Explorer" part of NewsLeecher.
We are also looking into an issue concerning the new V8 leeching engine, that occasionally (rarely for most users) causes downloading articles to 'go to sleep' for several seconds/minutes, before waking up again to finished the transfer. We think we know why this happens... Looking into it.
