Brand new Web based Usenet services, clients, utilities, etc., are being introduced every day, and we love them. Almost as much as our readers do. In this category the quality and number of features, ease of use, security, etc., are critically examined. We consider the patches and bug fixes, updates, and new feature add-ons, throughout the past 12 months. And, in the Newsreader Category, SABnzbd was the unanimous vote of all our Voting Editors.
The last year has held a few events of mention. There have been patches and bug fixes, but there has also been a couple of version releases. Presently, the most stable version is 0.7.11 Final. As with all other versions, this client will work on any OS that is internet capable. Several of our Voting Editors mumbled about the ease of use, but they also pointed out that the price is certainly right – Free. True, it is a little difficult to configure…at first. But with the tutorials, and a setup walkthrough, the learning curve for the client is easily climbed. Here are a few of SABnzbds’ key points:
Perhaps the largest developments for SABnzbd in the last 12 months, (or so,) started In Dec 2011 when they announced the release of version 0.6.14, but that was just the start of a short string of version releases. V. 0.7.4 soon followed, then a few months later 0.7.5, and now are presently at version 0.7.11 Final. There has also been a few third party add-ons introduced, and improvements made to the desktop and mobile clients. The community at SABnzbd has been very busy in the last months.
In a short time the community at SABnzbd has made this Newsreader a very popular Web based client indeed. And, the larger the community gets, the more versatile, (and powerful,) this reader can become. Congratulations for achieving so much in a short time, and keep up the good work!
