Exactly, no headers available. Since I only use NZB's I'm not experiencing any problems.

Not sure it's going to make Christmas. It's looking pretty good. Takes about 20 seconds to load all of "teevee". 850 days worth. I'm coming up with a list of what it needs to be beta-able. Big thing is it's not liking partial sets yet. You know, when you add something that hasn't been fully posted yet. Some of the display status stuff is wonky too. The core though, downloading and repair, kicks 5.59's ass.

As the thread has been inactive for a bit, would anyone like to give us an update on how things stand? How's the alpha progressing? Any indication of when us mortals get a chance to play around with the beta?

As always, thanks to everyone involved.

So i presume it will be added at some point during beta development process?
Please, just dont forget to mention about it when it is available =) since i work 90% with downloadingd and auto assembling still processing headers\articles it is kinda important. Even more than 1 min group update rate :lol:

That post was dated 19 Dec 2010 so I expect they've sorted that by now - but am not an alpha tester so am only guessing.

Ran into a problem today. Fixed it I believe. Still shooting for a beta before midnight EST.
