Changes in
this Version

Version 6.61 Beta 2 Build 4224, August 12, 2015

  • Fixed issue some people were having on upgrade to 6.60 where they would load a post list, it would flash then disappear.
  • New NBI setting to separate out any .nfo, .sfv, .srr files from compacted sets. Set CombineMeta=0 under Settings to break them out. Default is to combine.
  • Crash fix with "Delete all Posts by Poster" and maybe massive manual deletes too.
  • Fixed issue processing posts posted by one posting program that leaves a blank line between last yEnc data and yEnd line.
  • New installer. Hope it behaves better on Win10. Please report any strangeness

Version 6.61 Beta 1 Build 4195, August 5, 2015

  • NZB files are no longer compacted in with the rar/par set
  • Info from .SRR files are now included when you ctrl-r on a compacted set containing .srr files.
  • When items are queued using Ctrl-Y, to force the download, don't make it start a download over from the beginning if Newsbin is restarted.
  • Made change so new records don't get inserted to the top of the post list during header processing. Was causing flickering of the screen which annoyed people.
  • Increased the number of watch entries you can have to 120.
  • Fixed potential issue with Newsbin filtering out stuff it shouldn't be.
  • Headers are now stored compressed again until they are processed. The tradeoff of disk space usage vs. CPU usage is not justified.
  • Internal use of regular expressions has been sped up. Should improve overall processing speed of normal functions.
  • Fix to make sure the NBI path gets set on exit.
  • Added maximize buttons to the tabs.
  • Fixed issue where Header downloads failed with connection errors instead of retrying.
  • Change to column headers in servers tab and information displayed to make it more clear. Specifically Server Active/Disabled and if the server is set to download headers or not.

Issues

  • Download lists from versions older than 6.60 are not compatible.
  • Disabling unrar in the watch lists doesn't work
  • The "Pause Download during UnRAR/Repair" option under Options/Performance is always enabled, cannot disable.
  • Manually entered group as a Watch List filter does not work. Can only choose Group of Group folders here.
  • NBRemote hangs on last file when displaying files list
  • NBRemote does not work with trial keys
  • Cannot drag and drop groups in the Groups tab for ordering
  • 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. Workaround is to edit the .nbi file directly.
  • 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.

Awards
I like your setup/interface/layout. I used to be a Forte Agent user but it's new look is hard to follow. Plus you have easy-to-follow guides are great. D.O., Wellington, NZ - August 3, 2014
