Newsbin 6.60

Newsbin Pro 6.60 includes the following new features:

  • New Watch list interface.
  • Watch Lists can now be configured to make use of our Usenet Index through the Usenet Search interface. Requires a subscription to our Internet Search service.
  • All SSL connections are now TLS 1.0 instead of SSLv3. Drops back to SSL if the news server doesn’t support TLS
  • Now supports SickBeard/SickRage and Sonarr. Go under the Options menu and look for “Remote NZB Source Settings”.
  • Improved AutoPAR functionality, better repair capabilities.
    • A second retry will trigger a PAR to download to keep things going.
    • If 98% of files have downloaded, and PAR2 files exist, the first retry will trigger assembly.
    • If Newsbin retries with less than 98% of files already downloaded, it will continue retrying until 90% of files are downloaded.
  • Simplified Filter Configuration Screen.
  • Download List and Files List now perform a paged loading. It does not load the entire list from the DB, only what is needed to display.

Newsbin users can download version 6.60 from their downloads page. All full releases and betas are free of charge for users with a software license.  New users can download a 15 day free trial to test the client.
