nzbget 18.0 (stable) released

Post by hugbug » 12 Feb 2017, 20:40

Changes since 17.1
  • automatic deobfuscation of rar-archives without par-files (#288):
    • obfuscated downloads not having par-files can now be successfully unpacked;
    • also helps with downloads where rar-files were obfuscated before creating par-files;
    • new options "RarRename" and “UnpackIgnoreExt”;
  • multi post-processing (#291):
    • in addition to classic post-processing strategy where items are processed one after another it is now possible to post-process multiple items at the same time;
    • new option "PostStrategy" to choose from four: sequential, balanced, aggressive, rocket;
    • in "balanced" strategy downloads needing repair do not block other items which are processed sequentially but simultaneously with repairing item;
    • in "aggressive" mode up to three items are post-processed at the same time and in "rocket" mode up to six items (including up to two repair tasks);
  • unified extension scripts settings (#319):
    • options "PostScript", "QueueScript", "ScanScript" and "FeedScript" were replaced with one option "Extensions";
    • users don't need to know the technical details of extension scripts as all scripts are now can be selected at one place;
    • easier activation of complex extension scripts which previously needed to be selected in multiple options for their proper work;
  • reordering download queue with drag and drop in web-interface (#301):
    • new actions “GroupMoveBefore” and “GroupMoveAfter” in API-method “editqueue”;
  • priorities are now displayed as a column instead of badge; that makes it possible to manually sort on priority by clicking on column title (#286);
  • removed vertical lines in tables; looks better in combination with new priority column (#286);
  • keyboard shortcuts in web-interface (#242):
  • improved UI to prevent accidental deletion of many items (#282):
    • visual indication of records selected on other pages;
    • extra warning when deleting many records from history;
  • additional options in "custom pause dialog" (#29, #278);
  • better handing of damaged par2-files in par-renamer (#327):
    • if par-renamer can’t load a (damaged) par2-file then another par2-file is downloaded and par-renamer tries again;
  • better handling of obfuscated par-files (#313);
  • splitted option "Retries" into "ArticleRetries" and "UrlRetries"; option "RetryInterval" into "ArticleInterval" and "UrlInterval" (#306);
  • scheduler tasks can be started at program launch (#304):
    • use asterisk as TaskX.Time;
  • graceful termination of scheduler scripts (#304):
    • scripts receive signal SIGINT (CTRL+BREAK on Windows) before termination;
  • added support for nZEDb attributes in rss feeds (#275);
  • better cleanup handling: if parameter "unpack" is disabled for an nzb-file the cleanup isn't performed for it (#249);
  • fields containing passwords are now displayed as protected fields (#49, #260);
  • showing password-badge for nzbs with passwords (#274, #285);
  • allow control of what tab is shown when opening web-interface (#277):
    • add “#downloads”, “#history”, “#messages” or “#settings” to the URL, for example “http://localhost:6789/#history” or “http://localhost:6789/index.html#history”;
  • functional testing to ensure program quality (#279):
  • improved API-method "append" in combination with duplicate check; method returns nzb-id also for items added straight to history (#284);
  • removed parameter "offset" from api-method "editqueue" (#299):
    • when needed the “offset” is now passed within parameter “Args” as string;
    • old method signature is supported for compatibility;
  • improved error reporting on feed parse errors (#281);
  • highlighting selected rows with alternative colors (#276 , #280);
  • improved selecting of par2-file for repair (#329);
  • splitted config section "Download Queue" and moved many options into new section “Connection”;
  • disabled SSLv3 in built-in web-server (#295);
  • multiple recipients in the example pp-script “” (#309);
  • added compatibility with openssl 1.1.0 (#298);
