Quade what's happening with development?

Postby mednzb » Sat Dec 05, 2020 1:16 pm

I have been using newsbin pro since 2005 and I think it's a great product, but ever since 2018 it seemed like newsbin development stopped. I was starting to think that newsbin was dead and I was so happy to see a new beta in August. Usenet is constantly using new encodes and encryption so you need a reader that stays up to date.

6.82 was released last January I believe or December 2019.

There was a new beta in I think July. I switched to a completely different code tree and getting that cleaned up and 100% is what's caused the delay between July and now. I'm expecting a new beta on IRC this week and depending on how it turns out maybe in the forum next week or week after next.

6.82 seems to support all the current schemes except 7zip. You just need to feed the NZB's directly to the download list and not load them into the display first.

The new beta does 7zip.
