Version 6.72 Production Release

Postby dexter » Fri Aug 19, 2016 11:20 pm

Version 6.72 fixes some bugs discovered after the 6.71 release.

Short Summary of Changes:

  • Bug fixes to 6.71 uncovered after release
  • Updated to a new SSL library that behaves better with certain news servers and should be more reliable
  • Fixed the "Send PARS to Wish List" feature.
  • Fixed issue when using the Update icon, was downloading headers from all groups in the groups list, not just enabled groups.
  • Discovered a key exchange protocol for SSL that we weren't supporting. It is now supported.
  • Fixed issue where Newsbin can hang downloading small rar files..
If you want to see a detail list of changes, read through the release notes available at the end of the install process. Visit the Newsbin Download Page to get the latest version.

This is a free upgrade for all registered users. Just run the installer and all your settings will be retained. If you are upgrading from a version prior to 6.60, you should empty your download, failed files, and wish lists as they are not compatible with 6.60+.
