URD 0.5.5 as a package

Indeed, Spearhead looked into making a debian package and it's now on the download page.
If you already have URD 0.5.5 you don't need it, but if you are new (and use a Debian like distro)
you can use it for a simpler installation procedure.

Check out the download page!

0.5.5 "Now more stable than ever"

Yes! The long awaited 0.5.5 release is here!

We have been fixing bugs like mad, props to the people that pointed them out, you know who you are :)

Short list of the biggest fixes:

  • Fixed a typo in the 'check version' code, breaking the check version feature :(
  • Fixed bug where subscribing to certain newsgroups didn't work anymore after it 'broke' once
  • Fixed a HTML escaping bug in the NZB generator, breaking the XML syntax
  • Fixed bug in 'preview' feature where you got forwarded to a non-existing /tmp folder
  • Fixed bug in telnet where a ^C would cause URDD to hang (DoS danger!)
  • Fixed bug where unrar/unpar would wait until all downloads were finished
  • Fixed bug in the 'file downloading' feature where the entire file was first stored in memory

And the new thing:

  • Community based set info!

As an option, you can send and receive set info to/from the URD server. You'll have to have a forum account, which you need to enter into the configuration page. We need this
to block spammers or evildoers (see the Disclaimer page for privacy info).

The idea is to turn:

    Big Buck Bunny (HD) [01/59] - "Big_Buck_Bunny_HD.part01.rar" yEnc


    Bick Buck Bunny (720p) English

Complete with links to IMDB, movie rating, file quality, etcetera.

So go ahead and try it out !



You can help!

To make URD bigger & better :)

  • Let us know of bugs and problems, so we can fix them
  • Tell us which feature(s) you're missing
  • Recommend URD to people who might be interested
  • Write about URD on blogs & forums
  • Create new language packs
  • Create new themes

The more people that use it, the more feedback we get, the better we can make URD.
Plus, with the community-based set information, the more people that use URD, the better the set information becomes :)

And if someone were to make a good comparison of different usenet clients (including URD :P), we gain notability that we can use to clean up our Wikipedia page :)

On a side note, 0.5.5 is almost done. We just need to fix a few more bugs, but you can expect a release in the next few days. 

  • 0.5.3 is dead, long live 0.5.4!
