First of all, thank you for a thoughtful topic. I'm one of possibly many who is currently fleeing from NewsLeecher but I am indeed missing some features in NewsBin:
- the ability to set a custom number of days or alternatively, more choices between 7 and 15 days (I tend to visit Usenet once a week; with 7 days, sometimes things fall through the crack between 7 and 8 days);
- Boolean operators - or at least a way to specify AND and NOT;
- some ability to limit the view to a particular uploader so that additional filtering can be done on that view;
- it would be great to have multiple sort; if I'm greedy, it would be even better if it were maintained when setting or clearing Display or Filters;
- a info tip when hovering the small icon to the left of the subject (with my memory I still have to check Help > View Icon Legend regularly...
- the ability to specify file types (e.g. *.jpg and *.nfo) and/or sizes (e.g. < 4 MB) to automatically be moved to the top of the queue.
I gather that version 6 will already have Compact View for the Download Window; I'd like that for the ability to sort jobs by size.

- the ability to "bookmark" (store and retrieve) searches;
- searching on poster.

Apologies in advance if I've missed any of the above having already been requested elsewhere on this forum.
I hope some of the above will be found useful. For me, the things I miss most are the ability to specify a number of days between 7 and 15, and the ability to specify files to be moved to the top of the queue. Very curious to see what's in version 6!
