Hello,

Newsflash Plus 4.2.0 has been released.

This version is data incompatible with the previous version because the header engine has been reworked and greatly improved:

- less janky UI experience
- optimized performance, shaved off 80% from CPU time
- optimized data usage on the files on the disk!
- fixed few bugs affecting very large groups (in the size of billions)

I believe this is now one of the best if not the best header engine in any usenet client and it's capable of handling even the large groups with billions of articles.


Other features include:
- generic support for newznab based RSS feeds (and searches as before)
- support for extracting .zip, .7z files
- support drag & drop for .rar and .par2 files
- OpenSSL 1.0.2k

Plenty of small improvements such as:
- more convenient downloading (single clicks whenever possible)
- multiple default download paths based on media type
- support multiple RSS windows

Plenty of bug fixes:
- fixed a SSL read/write bug that would cause connnections to block indefinitely and the application would have trouble exiting
- fixed a bug related to not being able to scroll the newsgroup properly when updating
- several bugs related to connection/task states

As before the sofware is ad supported. If you like it you can remove the ads through a donation.

Thank you all.
