Newshosting Client Automatic Search

Earlier today Newshosting released a new version of their popular newsreader.  Newshosting client v1.4.0 contains a very cool new feature.  Members now have the ability to set up automatic searches.  No more missing content or waiting too long because you didn’t get around to it in time.  The new automatic search feature will check for your desired content hourly and download it once available.

Newshosting Automatic Search

We went in and set up a quick search for Ubuntu posts between 800 MB and 1000 MB.  Then we set the valid time to a week.  Specifically April 30th to May 7th.  For demonstration purposes we chose “Only show results”.  If we wanted the latest Ubuntu distro as soon as it hit Usenet we’d choose “Download one search result” or “Download all search results” from the Action dropdown.  Hopefully you get the idea from our quick demo.

The new automatic search feature is currently in beta.  You can expect to see more refinements in future releases.  If you’re not a member you can sign up for Newshosting for just $10 a month or $99 a year.  You can read our Newshosting review to learn more about the client and follow us for the latest news and updates.
