Two more fixes for 6.82. Here is the second Release Candidate:

Summary:

  • Fixed issue where Downloading Files list was grabbing focus after a header download completed.
  • Made some tweaks to how MP3's inside of RAR files are handled.

Download link is on the Beta Page.

I keep getting low disk space warnings since I installed this for some reason. My hard drive has over 800 gig free.

This is the second report. Does it pop up then go away?

You know it's checking both the data and download folders. Are they on the same drive?

When I download an MP3 rar, it doesn't seem to put the files into Album/Artist folders anymore, just un-rars to a directory based on the archive name.
(And yes, I checked to make sure I had it set correctly under Options.)

Post processing MP3's after unrar proved problematic. For one thing, often times the RAR files had their own embedded paths. What was happing is all the MP3's when processed by MP3 mode would then dump them all into a common folder instead of the individual folders in the RAR set.

For example you might have a rar set with a folder structure of

\Album1\
\Album2\
\Album3\

But after MP3 mode, all the MP3's would end up in a sub-folder of Album1 blowing the preset organization away.

Just noticed in this release is a bug in where Newsbin will select the spot (usually the first row, but not always) of the just unrared file. This makes it impossible to select files to pause or move while Newsbin is running.

Also, and this has been an annoyance for a long time, is that Newsbin ignores pressing the pause button if it's unraring a file. As soon as it's done, it will continue downloading. It's hard to hit the pause button at just the right time when nothing is unraring if you are download many small files.

You mean it focuses on a particular line?

Yes, it actually selects the line as if you clicked on it.

Under wine:
It isn't auto-sorting the post list anymore
I used to sort alphabetically after I opened a GoG, now it doesn't.

Just saw rc3 is up will check with that tomorrow
