nzbget 19.0-testing-r1999

Post by hugbug » 21 May 2017, 18:57

Changes since 19.0-testing-r1991
  • unrar shipped within Linux package is now compiled with "fallocate" option to improve compatibility with media players when watching videos during downloading and unpacking (#379);
  • updated unrar to v5.40;
  • better logging for direct rename (#362);
  • avoiding unnecessary renaming of par-sets (#362);
  • better cleanup on cancelling unpack (#371);
  • fixed: per-nzb download statistics could be wrong if the program was reloaded during downloading (#378).
Other changes since 18.0
  • unpack during downloading (#371):
    • downloaded files can now be unpacked as soon as every archive part is downloaded;
    • new option "DirectUnpack" to activate direct unpacking;
    • direct unpack works even with obfuscated downloads; option "DirectRename" (see below) must be active for that;
    • option "ReorderFiles" (see below) should be also active for optimal file download order;
    • direct unpack works for rar-archives; 7-zip archives and simply splitted files are processed by default unpack module;
    • direct unpack obviously works only for healthy download; if download is damaged the direct unpack cancels and the download is unpacked during post-processing stage after files are repaired;
    • direct unpack reduces the time needed to complete download and post-processing;
    • it also allows to start watching of video files during download (requires compatible video player software);
    • see forum topic Unpack during downloading for more info;
  • renaming of obfuscated file names during downloading (#360):
    • correct file names for obfuscated downloads are now determined during download stage (instead of post-processing stage);
    • downloaded files are saved into disk directly with correct names;
    • direct renaming uses par2-files to restore correct file names;
    • new option "DirectRename" to activate direct renaming;
    • new queue-event NZB_NAMED, sent after the inner files are renamed;
  • automatic reordering of files (#364):
    • inner files within nzb reordered to ensure download of files in archive parts order;
    • the files are reordered when nzb is added to queue;
    • if direct renaming is active (option "DirectRename") the files are reordered again after the correct names becomes known;
    • new option "ReorderFiles";

    • example script ** extended with button "Send test e-mail";
    • for details see updated wiki-page Extension-scripts;
  • TLS certificate verification (#339):
    • when connecting to a news server (for downloading) or a web server (for fetching of rss feeds and nzb-files) the authenticity of the server is validated using server security certificate. If the check fails that means the connection cannot be trusted and must be closed with an error message explaining the security issue;
    • new options CertCheck and CertStore;
    • official NZBGet packages come with activated certificate check;
    • when updating from an older NZBGet version the option CertCheck will be automatically activated when the settings is saved (switch to Settings page in web-interface and click "Save all changed");
    • see for details;
  • authentication via form in web-interface as alternative to HTTP authentication (#330):
