KLibido is a KDE usenet news grabber for Linux.




KLibido is a graphical Usenet file grabber for KDE. KLibido supports multiple server, multiple download threads per server, .nzb files, queue management, etc...

Here are some key features of "KLibido":

· Automatic joining of multi-part posts
· Automatic decoding of posts, using the uudeview library (yEnc supported) or an internal decoder
· Multiple servers support, with priorities and fallback if an article fails on a server and is present on another server
· Queue balancing: KLibido spreads the bytes load across servers with the same priority
· Multiple download threads per server support, with the ability to add or remove threads "on the fly"
· Gracefully handles network errors, timeouts, disconnects and out-of-space errors
· Acceptable (at least, by me :) memory usage (80-100 MB VMRss with several large groups open)
· Filter articles by subject and state (read, unread, complete, incomplete)
· Multi tabbed interface in IDEAl mode, to open multiple newsgroups at once
· KParts interface for previewing posts (.nfo, images, etc...) inside the program
· .nzb support
Download queue management:
· Pause (and resume) the queue
· Pause (and resume) the single posts
· Drag and drop the items around to change the download order
· Cancel download
· Lists of finished and failed items
· Granularity, with the ability to see the progress/status of the whole post and of the single articles of the post
· The progress of the download is saved and survives program exits/crashes

What's New in This Release:

· New option: do not automatically resize columns in headerlist (and remember columns' sizes)
· New option: Do not automatically sort by subject (and remember the selected sort column)
· New option: remember order of columns in headerlists
· NEW: Show progress for decoding
· FIX: Don't crash while canceling articles during decoding (and really cancel the article)
· FIX: Cancel of update items while updating dbs now works
· new action: move to bottom of the queue
· FIX: correctly remember "maximized" status for main Window.
· NEW: Sort by number of articles in available groups list (i.e.: when subscribing to newsgroups)
· New shortcuts in headerLists: clear filter (Ctrl + C) and jump to the filter entry box (Ctrl + F)
· New option: don't show statusbar at startup
· NEW: French translation
· NEW: Progress dialog for db migrations
· FIX: Header dates now works for localized distributions as well
· NEW: During db migration/compact, articles are checked for consistency and discarded (KLibido should not crash anymore if there are bogus articles into dbs). A log of the discarded articles is created in the db dir (default: ~/klibido/db)
· Various bugfixes (see Changelog)
