New Obfuscation Method...

Some uploaders to Usenet are now using a new obfuscation method that older versions of Newsbin does not support. The latest beta release, 6.90 B12, does support this obfuscation method. If you are seeing lots of failures to download posts, please upgrade to this beta release. It is very stable and close to production release.

The beta is free for registered users and can be downloaded from the Newsbin Beta Page. If you find any issues, please report them in this Forum Thread or send us a support request through the Newsbin Support Form.
