Veranderingen voor v6.55 - v6.56

  • We have released version 6.56 as the official production version. The only change is addition of TLS support for secure connections.



Veranderingen voor v6.52 - v6.54

  • Included "i" icon in the icon legend which shows rar/par set that includes nfo/sfv files.
  • Includes latest sqlite
  • Fix for potential crash issue when processing NZB files produced by NewsMangler
  • Fix issue where icons on Search tab would change if you switch to a post list and back.
  • Fix Read Post Body to show header text if there is no body data - specifically (0/1) posts.
  • Bumped header import priority, should be a little faster
  • Changed retries to never fail files with pars.
  • Fixed column sorting on Status column in Failed list.
  • Fixed issue where spam filter for encrypted files could not be disabled.
  • Fixed issue where nbi setting of "KeepFilestamp" was not being honored. Documented here
  • Note: Version 6.54 will NOT run on Windows 98 or Windows 2000.



Veranderingen voor v6.50 - v6.52

  • Internet Search results now have special icons showing password protected files and potential spam files.
  • Improved spam filters allow you to hide password protected and spam files from your search results list.
  • Performance enhancements and upgrade to latest version of sqlite for the working databases.
  • New icon on toolbar to toggle automatic shutdown mode on/off
  • Compaction scheme now pulls in .nfo, .sfv, .srr files into the set.
  • Shows a special icon when a .nfo file exists in the set. Look for a small "i" in a circle, like an information icon.
  • Read Post Body (ctrl-r) on a set now reads first chunks of one rar, one par, and any .nfo or .sfv files.
  • If an NZB file includes password information for the rar file, Newsbin can now extract and use it.
  • Improved speed when downloading from servers with the "Typical Retention" setting being used.
  • New 6.50+ Features
  • New Watch feature. Configure Newsbin to pull out items of interest during header downloads.
  • New Priority scheme for configuring multiple news servers.
  • Supports RAR5 archives
  • Ability to open multiple Search tabs. Hit the Search icon in the toolbar to open a new tab.
  • Ability to launch post unrar processing scripts.
  • Provides the ability to download parts of a post to one drive and have them assembled to another. Useful if you want to minimize I/O bottlenecks by downloading to a fast internal drive then save the assembled files on larger external media like a NAS.
  • Optimizations for downloading to SSD drives
  • Uses new hashing code. Seems to solve the rare problem where Newsbin and quickpar don't agree on the hash value
  • If you have two unique Regular Expressions with a space between them, it'll AND the results.
  • Intermediate NB2 files are no longer used.
  • New logic to verify all downloaded files even without pars so it won't download dup files ever.
  • Startup checking is much faster, like if you exit with large sets in the download list.
  • Compacts more posting styles
  • The "Small File Filter" is now disabled by default (Show PAR/NFO)
  • Unnecessary files in the data folder gets purged on startup now.
  • Now supports SMTP authentication for email notifications.
  • New toolbar icons, should be prettier.
  • Tech Notes:
  • When downloading, all the chunks go to a common folder in the data folder.
  • When downloading headers, all the updates are sent to a common folder and not "per group".
  • Only 2 downloading modes, fully buffered in memory or chunks in the common folder.
  • The chunks folder is only used if the memory cache has to be flushed.
  • Current in memory chunks get flushed out.
  • Concept of Fill Servers has changed. There is no specific "Fill Server" option to set now. Lower priority servers will only get used if all higher priority servers have failures.

  • Fixed issue handling article numbers over 4 billion.
  • Tweak for cases where the par16K hash is missing from the beginning of a par2 file
  • Includes new par2dll.dll and tbb.dll files. Improves repair performance.

  • Fixed a memory leak and potential crash problem.
  • Fixed issue where rapid subsequent header updates could cause Newsbin to download all headers.
  • Fixed issue where .r00 and .rar files for the same rar set may be displayed in compact view.



Veranderingen voor v5.56 - v5.57

  • A number of bug fixes to the 5.56 release
  • Added shortcuts for Download to Folder in the right-click menu for the Search tab



Veranderingen voor v5.53 Build 9507 - v5.56

  • Modifications to work with new Internet Search server with 700+ days retention
  • Pop-up screen indicating critical errors
  • Compact View disabled on Search tab since search results are now pre-compacted. Includes an option to uncompact entries after search results are received.

  • Status column in post list now shows number of files and PARS represented instead of number of records



Veranderingen voor v5.52 Build 9399 - v5.53 Build 9507

  • Supports header compression for Giganews. Allows you to bypass the Giganews Accelerator.
  • Performance optimizations for loading stored headers and processing single part posts.
  • Added progress bars to show progress of certain tasks (configurable).
  • Added logic to better handle possible conflicts with anti-virus software.

Veranderingen voor v5.50 Build 9337 - v5.52 Build 9399

  • Date column in Post lists and the Search tab now can be viewed as either an absolute date or, relative age. Toggle the display using ctrl-t or under Options/Advanced.
  • Fixed issue where setting the crosspost filter to 1 would filter everything.
  • Reverted to the bandwidth limiter logic from version 5.42. The one used in 5.50 and 5.51 wasn't working reliably for many people. This one is ineffective over 12mbps though.
  • When adding a group of RAR/PAR sets for download, either in NZB files, from the Search tab, or from a Post list, the smallest PAR2 file will get queued to the top of the list so AutoPAR will reflect the full list of files queued for download.
