History

Version 6.54 Beta 1 Build 3314, October 3, 2014

  • Fixed issue where spam filter for encrypted files could not be disabled.
  • Includes a newer SQLite, may see some performance improvements.
  • Bumped header import priority, should be a little faster processing headers.
  • Changed retries to never fail files with PAR2 files. If they cannot be downloaded, it is left to the user to decide how to deal with them.
  • Fixed column sorting on Status column in Failed list.

Issues

  • Need to add support for .REV files
  • Drag and Drop to order the Groups list in the Groups tab is not hooked up, nor can you column sort the groups.
  • There have been reports that Newsbin isn't saving the correct renamed files to descript.ion file.
    Newsbin renames the file on disk and then lands the file. Without re-writing the descript.ion, there's no way to fix this.
  • Works on Windows XP and newer.
  • Crosspost filters in the Add Groups dialog are not hooked up.

    Our Beta Support Forum has current discussions about this beta release.
