Newsbin 6.70 – New Download Engine and More

Quade’s latest efforts are ready for primetime as Newsbin 6.70 is out of beta.  If you haven’t had a chance to test out the new version then I suggest you head over to their site and grab the download.  If you’ve ever purchased a license for Newsbin then you’re in luck since you’re eligible for version 6.70 and all future upgrades.  Those new to Newsbin can download a 15 day free trial.  Simply visit and click on the “Free Trial Key” button.  The free trial includes full access to Newsbin 6.70 and their Usenet search engine.  When the trial ends you can buy a license with lifetime updates for just $20 or subscribe to their search engine and continue to use it free.


Newsbin 6.70 has several new features and we’re especially excited about the new download engine.  You can expect a faster, more reliable experience with the new download engine.  Continue to download while you process files.  Here are just a few of the new features that Newsbin shared in a related forum post.  You can view the change log for a full list of new features and bug fixes in the new version.

  • Rewrite of the download engine for better performance and reliability
  • Now supports downloading during unrar/repair processing
  • Moved spam filtering logic into a .dll file that can be distributed separately with updates instead of requiring a new release
  • Changes to how and when the configuration gets auto-saved. Trying to minimize potential for corruption with unexpected exits.
  • Added ability to apply a filter on Poster (From Field) in a Filter Profile.

It’s great to see the continued efforts in developing new features.  In the last week we’ve covered new releases from Newsbin and SABnzbd.  Both of which add new features to make for a better Usenet experience.  We’re especially excited to see the new download engine in Newsbin and the ability to process files while continuing to download.  Remember to share any feedback you have with their team so they can continue to refine and make the Usenet client even better.  Cheers to the @Newsbin team.  Here’s to a great 2016!
