NNTPGrab 0.6.91 (0.7 Beta 2) released
The second beta of the NNTPGrab 0.7 branch has just been released.
The Qt frontend (which was introduced in the first 0.7 beta) has become feature complete and is now the default frontend on Windows and Mac OS X environments
The Qt frontend provides a much better look and feel on Windows and Mac OS X environments when compared to the previous GTK based frontend.
All features which were already present in the GTK frontend have also been implemented in the Qt frontend.
Next to the regular bug fixes some new features have been introduced as well.
One of these features is support for GnuTLS to download from usenet servers using SSL.
GnuTLS fits much better in the single download thread model which was introduced in NNTPGrab 0.6.
The configuration part of the program has also been updated so that the configuration parts of the various plugins
only get shown when the plugin is really loaded. This resolves some confusion which users had with NNTPGrab 0.6.
