Description:

This is a binary newsgroup client for KDE4. I wrote it because there is no one client out there that does what I want it to. Planned features include automatic PAR2 checking (via kpart, whee), automatic unpacking of downloaded files, System tray support (trivial I know :p ), DBUS support, automatic queue save and restore upon shutdown/startup. Feel free to request more :)




Changelog:

Beta 4
Fixed issues with uudeview not being found.

Beta 3
Fixed some minor UI bugs.

Beta 2
Development has been on hold for the summer vacation :) KDE Beta 1 has just come out however, so I made the code compatible with it. I hadn't been developing it lately since the KDE API was constantly in flux, and I got sick of adding new features only to have my code not compiling with the next SVN revision because the API had been changed. However, the API has been frozen now so I'll be developing this actively now again.
The good news is that I have been using this exclusively to download my binaries, and I have found and fixed lot of bugs. A few remain though, and will be fixed for the 0.1 release. Queue saving and editing features will be introduced in the 0.2 release, and the connection code will be rewritten.

Beta 1

-Systemtray integration added

-Speed reporting for download threads added to main GUI.

-Removal of downloaded parts added. Main GUI still does not delete downloaded files entirely, to be fixed.

-Logging added. Program now logs failures to log file that is located in /home/user/knewz/log.txt by default.

Known bugs

-Some files do not update their status even when downloaded entirely.

-Timeouts due to network congestion are not handled gracefully, so the file will not download completely nor be decoded if a thread downloading a file undergoes a timeout.

Alpha 3

-Decoder progress bars in main GUI now actually work

-Decoder now decodes files into subdirectories in the main download directory according to the filename of the *.nzb

Alpha 2

-Decoder progress bars added to main GUI

-Decoder now works properly for multipart binaries with incorrect subject title

Alpha 1

Early alpha release, so expect it to eat your gnu, rape miscellaneous pets and sexX0r your computer.

Hi, I'd be very interested in giving knewz a spin, unfortunatly though upon configuring with cmake it fails with the following error:

CMake Error: The following variables are used in this project, but they are set to NOTFOUND.
Please set them or make sure they are set and tested correctly in the CMake files:
UUDEVIEW_INCLUDE_DIR
used as include directory in directory /home/nathan/Downloads/knewz-0.1_beta4/src

I am using Kubuntu 8.10 Beta

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
