Version 6.81 Final Available...

Postby dexter » Fri Sep 14, 2018 4:09 pm

Rebuilt to change the version in title bar to read "6.81". Also made a small fix for the remote interface.

The full change history and the download link is on the Newsbin Beta Page. This version will be listed on the website as the production release soon.

Thanks to everyone involved tracking down bugs in the 6.81 beta cycle. Some feature adjustments have been requested and are under consideration for the next round of changes.

Anyone else having this issue? Worked fine for me. Did anything change with your system since your last install? Newsbin tracks a key in the windows registry to determine previous install location. If you move Newsbin to another machine without running the installer, or if you reinstalled your OS since the last install, this could happen.

Might have been a wine issue, installed fine today.

Version 6 81 Final Available

Postby Hypelymn » Fri Nov 30, 2018 8:33 pm

Very small bug this.. on startup NL 2 beta 1 reports that theres a newer version available, meaning version 1 final. I have both notify on new final version and notify on new beta version enabled in options.

And should bug for the new beta versions be reported here, or in the regular bugs forum?

I've discovered an interesting issue with 6.81, which may well be limited to those of us on 32bit systems, as no one else seems to have reported it as yet.
When I add posts that are reported as complete to my download list, they sometimes show up as incomplete when I attempt to download them. If I close NBP, then reopen it, they then download fine.

Where are you adding them from? Search or Headers?

I wonder if it's some time function like, you add something while Newsbin is updating it in the background? I'm not sure at this point.

I'll keep a close eye on it & get back to you with screenshots if it keeps happening.
