NZBVortex Version 2.3 Supports Mac OS X Lion

On July 18th NZBVortex released a new version of their Mac Usenet client.  NZBVortex version 2.3.0 is available for download and compatible with the new Mac OS X 10.7 Lion.  We started tracking the progress of NZBVortex last year.  Since then the team has released several versions.  Users rave about how easy it is to navigate and use NZBVortex and we definitely agree.  The client might not have all the features of Newsbin Pro or Newsleecher but it doesn’t need to.  It presents Mac fans with a clean design and easy to use client.

Here’s a list of whats new in the NZBVortex 2.3.0 release:

  • Groups with auto matching, added to queue, filterbar, rss and more.
  • Mac OS X 10.7 Lion Ready
  • Option to disable removing dots form filename (better for some scrapers)
  • Better cleanup “Sample” folder (especially for german releases)
  • More queue sort options: Age, Size, Name, Group Name, Remaining bytes
  • Lion UI fixes for the momentum scrollbars
  • Better Giganews SSL to non-SSL server switch
  • Prevent multiple launches of NZBVortex
  • Able to add preference toolbar icon
  • Welcome message displayed too often for new users
  • Support for RAR sets which start with .001

We look forward to testing the latest version of NZBVortex in the near future.  Right after upgrading to OS X Lion.  You can purchase a license of NZBVortez for $19.95.  With a number of buying options.  See their license page for more details.  Those new to NZBVortex or considering which Mac newsreader to choose might also have interest in reading the reviews at MacUpdate.  NZBVortex has very high user ratings with an average of 4.5 stars.
