Issues

  • Download lists from versions older than 6.60 are not compatible.
  • Auto-shutdown will close Newsbin while headers are still importing in the background. Determined to be annoying but not critical as the import will continue once Newsbin is started again.
  • Report that utf8 and unicode posts are not displaying correctly, i.e. Korean groups
  • 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
  • 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.

After my news provider ceased supplying News Rover, I looked for an alternative program to handle NZB files. Having tried several, I've decided to go with Newsbin Pro. It's better than others that I've tried, including News Rover. J.N., Surrey, Great Britain - August 10, 2014
