Newsbin Beta 6.90B8 - build 5332

Postby Quade » Wed Mar 24, 2021 9:10 pm

http://downloads.newsbin.com/downloads/beta/nb690B8-5332.exe

Might need to cut and paste the URL into your browser. For some reason my Chrome isn't downloading when I click it.

    - Download: Threading complete re-work to prevent starving of later connections. Solves problem with slow speed ramp and connections going unused because the earlier connections were hogging the workorder service.
    - Download: MP3 Mode doesn’t apply to downloads inside RARS, does apply to downloads with PARS
    - Download: Header downloads don’t seem to cancel.

    - Display: Add path back to files list.
    - Display: QuickUnRAR from files list doesn’t work. Doesn’t generate proper samples in list.
    - Display: Added a new field in the post list that shows (XX/YY) for visible and total files. Makes it more clear when filters hide files.
    - Display: Remove header compression and cleanup windows and just run the clean in the background?

    - NZB: Automatically download all double-clicked NZBs. Automatically download all NZB’s from command line. Still allow them to be manually loaded.

    - AutoPAR: Removing single-tons from the download list which eventually unrars, loses the subject and poster information on unrar. This probably fixes the “disable unrar per group” issue.
    - AutoPAR: report that either autopar is unraring to incorrect path which includes $(GROUP) or that disabling unrar doesn’t really disable it for the group. The problem was files leaving the download list before autopar got a look at them. A future fix it to save meta in the par tracker. Right now, deletes from download list happen in the repair thread. Only downside is slow unrars also mean slow removal.
    -AutoPAR: Incomplete partial files weren’t getting renamed to lower case versions after repair


Lots of other fixes big and small.

Not sure if you had chance to completely address the following but -
I've seen a few nzbs which NBP won't PAR/unRAR. I get a folder with all PAR/RAR files in the set.
Just tried a couple of this nzb type on this build - no change in this behavior. Still need manual attention -
Running multipar & rar manually, correctly processes the files. (I assume you have plenty of samples of this post/nzb type.)

Otherwise, it is downloading from my watchlist to correct folder & obeying the don't unrar switch.
It is downloading all PARs tho, not just enough to fix any errors.

Thanks for all your efforts Quade ;)

My chrome downloaded it ok with a click. Also to confirm, double-clicking NZB's now loads to the download list correctly. Thanks.

Send me some NZB's to try. The one issue I know about is that that if you have two sets of PARS in the same NZB it gets confused. I haven't coded a work around yet.

ts @ newsbin dot com.

Let me know when you send them. It's a different mailbox than the one I normally check.

If you access the forum via https it might be Chrome's latest "mixed content" protection refusing to follow the link because it's a link to unsecure (http) content from a secure webpage. The file type may matter too, all those rules are per content type which makes them a nightmare to keep track of.

I see that the forum is available via both http and https so that might explain people seeing different behavior (http page to http link doesn't trigger the same issues), but it might also be that Google is changing it gradually - a lot of Google's changes are rolled out gradually to some users first on a random basis to see if they break too much things.

Perhaps it's time to move that to https, Google are slowly raising the temperature of the water (Cf: Boiling Frong syndrome) for anything http and as mentioned different people will not always see the same things due to gradual roll-outs so you might not catch when they do something that affects some of your users.

I figured it was some chrome nanny thing too. Thanks.

I could have posted the S3 bucket where the download is located. That would be HTTPS but I think Dex frowns on me doing that. We have HTTPS on everything except the specific mapping of the S3 bucket. I don't know the ins and outs of how these certs work.

Just found some weird issue with the watch lists. Apparently they're not group filtering.

Ok got it thanks. There were 3 sets in the RAR.

1 - Downloaded fine.
2 - I have to check this one out. It went right to failed.
3 - This one is probably the one that shows what you're reporting. The issue is all the files have the same name so, they get renamed when downloaded which confuses autopar.

#3 is fixable now that I have an example.

Hi Quade

What is the purpose of the dropdown box next to filters for "Count of Total and Hidden Files"? Just curious whether it should be there and/or if it's to do anything!!


Cheers

Yeah, I noticed that mine weren't showing the number of new articles so it appeared, at a glance, that nothing was caught yet if I right click\show posts on them then the new posts would show without issue.

Noticed this in Build 5317 and Build 5332

In the servers window you are shown the connections under the server and there doesn't seem to be a way to collapse this so just the top level server name is visible. The only way to collapse if if the server is disabled. I have 5 servers and most have 30+ connections, so to see server details (data downloaded) you have to do a very long scroll.

Sure this didnt' use to be the case on previous versions, so is this a concious change in behaviour?

Thanks Quade, I definitely prefer the previous look and feel or an option under servers to show connections or not

Strange issue under wine 6.5
Will not launch from script only from the installer. I.e. Installer runs then launches fine, try to start up from menu and no go.
CLI shows "wine: failed to load start.exe: 40000003"

Runs under 6.0 so maybe a feature of 6.5

Hi Quade,

Confirm "Disable UnRAR for this group" is now working properly. Thanks.

Great thanks.


Not sure about the wine thing. Newsbin runs great under 6.0.

Just like with the beta before, I have issues with files not being marked downloaded or old.

Sometimes new or already downloaded files get the green icon of having been downloaded. Sometimes they don't. Sometimes they appear in the "Failed" (duplicate detection...) tab, sometimes they don't. Seems totally random to me.
This is when downloading from a group.

And then there's the occasional "Download failed: File retry count exceeded.." message, even though the download was fine.

FWIW, 6.5 broke lots of stuff similarly. Revert to 6.4 and all should be good.

I've noted the random not mark downloaded thing. I'm not sure what's up with it yet.

It would be good, well at least for me, if you could.

For the reasons noted here already I know that I've mentioned it previously that I don't find it useful with multi - servers and not being able to collapse their appearance.

FYI The change in pathing for files in the download list I described in B7 is still not getting saved across shutdown/restarts.

I don't remember the issue. You mean you change the path in the download list and it doesn't save it when you restart?

Now's a good time to look at this. B9 is pretty close.
