  • Upgraded the bundled UnRAR library to version 5.
  • Multi monitor systems now have improved support for more detailed status.
  • Improved handling of NNTP connection failures.

Bug Fixes:

  • Fixed issue where running the Linux 32bit executable on a 64bit Linux system caused wrong disk space calculations in some cases.
  • Sorting by file name now works in the NZB dialog.
  • Closing the settings dialog will no longer present a warning about unsaved changes although nothing was changed.
  • If missing RAR files were missing from a download, it could cause the client to crash during extraction in some cases. This has been fixed.
  • Fixed issue where a wrong remaining byte count was displayed in the connection graph in the lower left corner.
  • The client no longer giving trouble to start on some Linux distributions with a KDE desktop environment and a few affected themes.
  • The global search input in the upper right corner is no longer translucent on some Linux systems.
