NewsLeecher is a Usenet downloading (leeching) application. It downloads movies, pictures, MP3 files, and software applications, and uses it's inline engine to assemble and decode all the downloads. NewsLeecher takes the best features from NewsBinPro, NewsPro, BNR, GrabIt, and other popular newsreaders and mix them together. As the originator to the NZB format, NewsLeecher has a full support for downloading via NZB files. With the built-in Super Search engine, you can search all the binary Usenet groups at once, for a specific keyword or keystring. NewsLeecher has advanced support for leeching from multiple servers at the same time, and an unlimited number of Usenet servers can be used to download files simultaneously. The built-in automatic multipart posts processing removes the hassle from combining binary post parts one by one. NewsLeecher detects and combine parts by itself.
What's new in this version:
Version 5.0 beta 15 has upgraded the SSL encryption libraries and security settings used by NewsLeecher.
