Changes in
this Version

Version 6.82 Beta 1 Build 5088, December 27, 2018

    NOTE: Will not run on XP machines.

  • Fixed issue with unrar path used by Sonarr.
  • Fixed issue with Sonarr not including "Content Length" in requests.
  • Update reported version to match latest SAB.
  • Verified that "Delete all" from queue and history actually does both.
  • Fixed issue accepting URL's from NZBHydra. Differing opinion on when to URL encode forward slashes as specified in the RFC.
  • Fixed issue where Newsbin was not following redirected URL's received by NZBHydra. Sonarr sends direct URLs.
  • Changes to support obfuscated posts with no extensions. As reported in this forum thread


Version 6.81 Release Candidate 1 Build 5079, August 27, 2018

    NOTE: Will not run on XP machines.

  • Rebuild as Release Candidate
  • Re-formated some error messages.

Version 6.81 Beta 4 Build 5071, July 14, 2018

    NOTE: Will not run on XP machines.

  • Re-introduced in place edit for filter entries on filter add dialog. It works but the edit is in the first column.
  • Made changes to ignore if Windows returns 0 space. Most of the times it is wrong. Newsbin should have detected and paused downloads/unrars well before this happens. Hopefully will help people with NAS devices that are reporting available disk wrong.
  • Now takes any de-obfuscated part of the subject and uses it to rename obfuscated MKV's from Search results. Already does this for NZBs.
  • Removed subject checking during download since there are new obfuscated subjects that have no file counters.

Version 6.81 Beta 3 Build 5068, June 23, 2018

    NOTE: Will not run on XP machines.

  • Fixed the "Download to New Folder" function.
  • Tweaks to try to minimize chances of the "Update Pending" message from displaying.
  • Removed size limits from NZB Autoload for zips and rars.
  • Made change to NZB Autoload to only look at the first RAR and not any of the other numbered rars.
  • Fixed issue where Newsbin wouldn't remember a new configuration file if launched by double-clicking on a different configuration file.

Version 6.81 Beta 2 Build 5065, June 4, 2018

    NOTE: Will not run on XP machines.

  • Fixed issue where one bad file breaks unrar for any subsequent files in the list. Hoping this the "files hang in download list" issue from 6.80 beta cycle that we could not reproduce.
  • Addressed issue with NZB's containing files having exactly the same subject
  • Now checks for available disk space before purging cache to disk

Version 6.81 Beta 1 Build 5062, May 31, 2018

    NOTE: Will not run on XP machines.

  • Improved handling if you run out of disk space while downloading
  • Fixed issue where items in download list would sometimes get stuck
