Projects / LottaNZB


LottaNZB aims to simplify and automate downloading of binary news from Usenet. You can tell it what to download using NZB files, which are created by many Usenet search engines. It integrates nicely with GNOME desktops, but is not limited to them, and uses the mature SABnzbd software as its foundation.

    Release Notes: This release is built upon a new backend called SABnzbd, which is actively being developed and offers a rich API and many features. The main window as well as other parts of the user interface have undergone a redesign, making them slicker and more customizable. Users are given more information about and control over downloads. The setup process of LottaNZB has been greatly simplified, allowing the user to choose to either download to the current computer or manage the downloads of another computer. Furthermore, the whole help contents have been rewritten and are also available online.

      Release Notes: This release features a few minor bugfixes, a new plug-in, and several new and updated translations. The new "Inhibit suspending" plug-in prevents the computer from being suspended as long as there are active downloads.

A bug has been fixed that caused LottaNZB to crash on startup, and the order of the menu entries in the panel menu has been improved.
