Full Specifications

What's new in version 1.5
  • Picture Patrol Officer was renamed to Picture Patrol. There will not be a Picture Patrol Captain, in spite of our original plans. All features for the more advanced Captain will be integrated into Picture Patrol from now on;
  • the new name is accompanied by a brand new application icon;
  • support for an unlimited number of news server accounts was added, so you can access newsgroups from several news servers in one go;
  • you can color code a news server, and all of its newsgroups, to recognize what you are working with;
  • user-defined collections of newsgroups give you the ability to subdivide the vast number of pictures;
  • automatic group circulation can be activated after a number of pictures, articles or minutes within a collection;
  • each collection can have its own download location, so you can use your preferred filing system;
  • directories can be created automatically for each download date, posting date, and newsgroup name;
  • the number of favorite newsgroups is unlimited from now on, and because you can put them into collections, you will not lose the overview;
  • the program can create unique filenames for you, to avoid overwriting pictures with the same name that were downloaded earlier;
  • a number of enhancements in our NNTP routines enable Picture Patrol to communicate better with less forgiving news servers;
  • the stability went up again, because we added some more protection against corrupted files;
  • the toolbar layout was changed. It is now fully prepared for features we have in mind for version 1.6;
  • a new preferences storage system, using human-readable XML files, was introduced. You can now for example throw away the window positions preferences to return to the default situation, without messing up the rest of the program;
  • preferences will only be saved when they were changed in the past 30 seconds, so your hard disk drive can go to sleep when the program does nothing;
  • without a valid license, there will still be a demo bar over the previewed picture, but no more annoying dark mask over the lower half.
