Curious on new Beta or Major Release. It's bee na while since one. I only came looking since my last version has been acting up a bit... Program gets stuck a lot where GUI does not update for minutes at a time.

Thank you!

I'm working on it as we speak. I have two code bases, the old code that 6.82 was released on and the new code with significant improvements. There are a couple fixes I could patch into the old code to get a beta out but ultimately I want to release the new code but it's not quite ready for beta yet.

Considering how much time the new code might take, it might make sense to release a beta with the old code and some fixes.

There's a new obscured format I need to work around so it's even more likely now. I was just digging up the old code to work on it again.

saw the next version (beta) will include support for 7zip

will there be a checkbox to allow newsbinpro to automagicly use 7zip to expand 7z file found inside an expanded rar file
appears putting a 7z file inside a rar is a new 'feature' for newsgroup posts

Newsbin already recurses one level down so, it'll unrar and rar inside a RAR. I'll make a note that it should do the same with 7zip.

I was just working on 7zip for the beta right now. It's kinda the only real holdup.

Thank you! will be a great time saver, for those (many) times when you return and find a 7z and then wait while you do by hand x times :D

Hi Quade

Sorry for bothering you with my thoughts - but I´ve been using Newsbin for more than 10 years and the last Beta is working fine for me on the technical side but
its realy time for a new more modern lets say win 10 Style GUI of Newsbin in a time where GBit Internet lines are getting common

Any Thoughts from your side ?

Yep, it's time, being a fan of Dark theme, you know my choice. Use systems usually late at night, tired of any white blasting at me. Hard on ole eyes. Lost track of how long been using this program now, been long time.
