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.
