NewsLeecher Version History

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

+: --------------------------------------------------- << Major Feature Addition - SuperSearch Watchdog >> --------------------------------------------------- The SuperSearch Watchdog feature automatically spots freshly indexed article collections in your SuperSearch search results. "Freshly indexed" means that the article collections were indexed by the SuperSearch indexer *after* your prior similar SuperSearch search was performed. The purpose of the watchdog feature, is to make it very easy to locate the SuperSearch article results you haven't already browsed. +: (Re)Implemented checkbox support for browsing Usenet groups. The checkboxes are used for loading and unloading the Usenet groups. +: Added an 'Edit Bookmark' feature to the SuperSearch and the Explorer Bookmarks bars. The new feature can be accessed from the bookmark buttons right click menus. +: New SuperSearch TAB navigation shortcuts: The Ctrl+T keyboard shortcut, can now be used to create a new SuperSearch search tab. The Ctrl+W or Ctrl+F4 keyboard shortcuts, can now be used to close the active SuperSearch search tab. Ctrl+Shift+Tab and Ctrl+Tab keyboard shortcuts, can now be used to switch back and forth between SuperSearch search tabs. +: Added a 'Data received per day' statistics column, to the 'Servers' view. +: Added an 'Add Selected PAR2s to Repair & Extract' feature to the 'Explorer' views toolbox menu. *: ---------------------------- << Major GUI Improvements >> ---------------------------- Lots of GUI improvements. We're currently working hard on making the NewsLeecher GUI even faster,slicker and less resource hungry than it already is ;) -- Besides using considerably fewer system resources when handling the NewsLeecher GUI, this specific beta also removes all 'flickering' when resizing the main NewsLeecher window. The GUI look has also been improved. -- *: Reworked the SuperSearch and the Explorer Bookmark bars. The 'New Bookmark' button has been moved and the 'Delete Bookmark' button has been removed, to make more room for the bookmark buttons. Bookmarks can now instead be removed from a popup menu, by right clicking the bookmark buttons. *: SuperSearch will only show the "Maximum number of search results received" message once per search now, instead of everytime a SuperSearch tab with 30.0000 results was activated. *: Redesigned the 'Advanced Filtering' dialog. It can now be accessed from the filtering boxes drop-down menus. *: Redesigned the Server Setup dialog *: Changed 'Focused' control handling a bit, to allow better keyboard group navigation. -: The 'Image Preview Panel' feature has been removed. It will be replaced by a better 'Download Preview' control before the NewsLeecher V5.0 final release. !: Implemented workaround for a bug that sometimes caused NewsLeecher to corrupt articles that were being downloaded while 'GZIP Compressed' data was streamed from usenet server. Note that this bug has only been experienced with the usenet provider Giganews, so it is most probably a bug at their end. !: The Bot 'Login Message' feature, which can be accessed from the bot views popup menu, didn't work. Fixed. !: Drag'n'Drop *.PAR2 files to the Repair & Extract View didn't always work. Fixed. !: Drag'n'Drop *.NZB and *.NZB.ZIP files to the Queue View didn't always work. Fixed. !: The 'Select All' feature in the logwin context menu didn't work. Fixed. !: Many smaller bugfixes.

SuperSearch is currently running with a bit more than 4 years of article retention. But we are working hard to reach our goal of 10+ years retention. All 10+ years of Usenet article-data is in our storage, just waiting to be used to bump the SuperSearch retention.

The reason that retention is currently "only" at ~4 years, is that the amount of stuff posted to the Usenet is constantly rising. It requires more and more system resources to keep up, even though the index retention is kept constant. And not only that. We have also decided to start indexing subjects of text-groups and keep full index retention for audio and image (JPG, PNG, etc) groups. Those groups alone contain tens of millions of articles that we make fully searchable in true wildcard/substring (

Anyway. As mentioned above, we are working hard on improving the SuperSearch service at the moment. The service's backend-engine is being partly rewritten to improve performance and to make sure that the service is futureproof, by being able to keep up with the ever expanding Usenet retention demands.

We also use the code-rewrite opportunity to modulize the backend, so it gets a lot easier to add new functionality in the future.

While we cannot say for sure when exactly the job is done, we can say though, that it will be pretty soon. Things are progressing nicely and the most longhaired part of the optimization is done.

So all in all, good things to come soon :)
