What's new in NewsLeecher 7.0 Beta 5:

  • This update contains major improvements to the group and queue cache system. To make these improvements possible, the cache file format had to be changed a bit. The upgrade to the new improved format is done automatically by NewsLeecher, but in case you want to downgrade to an earlier version of NewsLeecher later on, is it recommended that you make a backup of your NewsLeecher settings before installing.
  • Added a toggle to let Repair'n'Extract postpone RAR archive extraction while articles are queued for being downloaded. Settings -> Repair / Extract -> Postpone RAR Extracting ...
  • The download queue now consumes *much less* memory than before. This is especially noticable when the download queue contains lots of articles. We made a test with a large download queue, and saw memory usage go from 750MB to 55BM in this version.
  • Groups and queue cache cleanup code is now ~1000% faster than before. This is especially noticable when the download queue contains lots of articles.

NewsLeecher is the kind of tool you simply can't live without. It is a Usenet downloading application that allows you to download software, image, audio and video files in a few elementary steps.

Amongst its most cherished features we count the download manager / scheduler, PAR2 (parity archive volume set) support, automatic RAR extraction, SSL support and multiple simultaneous connections.

The user interface may seem complicated at first glance, so make sure to check the online forum first, in order to learn how it works. There are also a lot of tutorials available on the Internet, if you ever get lost in its functions.

Usage is not rocket science: first you need to set up a server, and then connect to it. Searching is done extremely fast, thanks to SuperSearch Service. The time it takes to download a file depends on size, number of leechers, and other factors, but it is generally fast.

NewsLeecher supports NZB files and multiple servers. It is possible to pause all active downloads by making just one click, and the application can be minimized to system tray. In addition, the software can automatically check, repair and extract any files you have downloaded.

NewsLeecher uses a high amount of CPU and memory during the downloading process, so don't expect it to be kind to your computer.

The fact of the matter is that NewsLeecher has developed an impressive fan base, and it’s got good chances of surviving its competitors. If we have caught your attention, then perhaps you should give it a try.
