The most annoying bug of NNTPGrab up-to-date is the bug where importing a second NZB or importing a NZB from an external source (like a webbrowser) frequently fails with the message 'This code should not be reached'. This is caused by two bugs in GTK: [1] and [2]. These bugs aren't fixed yet in GTK, but a proper workaround has been found which shouldn't have any side effects
Improve the reliability of the automatic NZB import by queueing up events triggered by the directory monitor and only process these events when they haven't changed in the last 3 seconds
Disabling/enabling the automatic NZB import could cause a crash on Win32. Fixed
While decoding, don't reopen the resulting file again for each part. This should improve compatibility with several virus scanners on Win32 environments
The schedular could get automatically stopped with the message 'No such file or directory' when the decoder tried to decode a file which lacks the '=yend' tag. Fixed
The download queue context menu items 'open download folder' and 'execute downloaded file' were broken on Mac OS X. Fixed
The NZB import screen was showing a raw unix timestamp and the file size in bytes. This has been changed to a human-readable timestamp and a better readable filesize
Some texts didn't got translated. Fixed
Don't link against NSS when NSS is found, but nss_compat_ossl isn't found
Fixed a memory leak in the NZB loading code

Version 0.4.1 | Release Date: 2008-12-29 | Download

* The automatic PAR2 wouldn't start when the subject of the file is malformed. This is fixed by checking the file extension after each decode instead of relying only on the subject for the filename
* Before starting to decode files, test if the resulting directory can be opened. If this isn't possible, return an error message and pause the download queue to avoid files from getting lost
* As of NNTPGrab 0.3.0, connecting to IPv6 servers triggered a 'stack smashing attack' after which the program was automatically killed. Fixed
* The decoder could generate several empty files when there's no diskspace available. Fixed
* Improve error handling when saving files on async NFS shares
* Fixed a crash which occured when more than 10 servers are added in the configuration
* Raised the maximum number of servers from 10 to 25 servers
* Fixed a possible compile failure
* Fixed a possible crash in the webinterface and the networked GUI
