Software update: Usenet Explorer 5.5




Version 5.5 of Usenet Explorer has been released. With this program files from usenet can be downloaded. Usenet Explorer is characterized by low processor and memory usage, and extensive possibilities, which may make it less suitable for novice users. In this edition the following changes and improvements have been implemented:

Changes in version 5.5:
Additional unrar to subdir derive folder name options: “from nzb collection name” and “from custom collection name” (Edit menu-> Save / Unpack, Unpack, Unrar to subdir, Derive name).
Added “Separate folder per collection (auto)” option in the newsgroup view and the search service view context menus. When collection is available at once for download & save, each collection will be saved into a separate folder. The option is only recommended when the files are under the same collection.
Added “Trim subject in the middle” option in Edit menu-> Properties-> Save / Unpack, Save, Auto download & save. When the auto-created save folder name is too long – the subject is being used as part of it. The setting also applies to the suggested folder in the name of the folder when the save path is too long.
Added “Limit save path” option in Edit menu-> Properties-> Save / Unpack, Save, Auto download & save. It is now possible to set the auto save path length limit within some range, instead of fixed limit previously.
Added “Search by author” option in the newsgroup view context menu. The author will be copied into the search service bar after which eg pressing “Enter” will initiate the search by the author.
Better handling of rar set posts which has been recently, when each file has its own par2 set.
The unrar password code was refined to discern nzb collections.
Improved unrar password propagation in article tasks and their associated unpack tasks after custom collection unrar password has been created or changed.
Updated the built-in kill filter.
