SABnzbd In The Last Year

The last year has seen a few version releases, bug fixes and patches, but little of major consequence. It is presently in version 0.7.16 and has more than 6.5 million downloads. SABnzbd also enjoys the distinction of being one of the few newsreaders that can run on virtually any OS, including mobile platforms. The client is completely free, and open source. It is a little difficult to configure, but the tutorials ans support that are available are outstanding and make up for this problem. Here are a few highlights of SABnzbd:

  • Open Source – The newsreader is totally free, and very popular.
  • Works on any Operating System – Windows, OSX, Linux, or anything internet capable.
  • Support – Lots of support in the form of tutorials, forums, and even a regular support and development staff.
  • Works on any mobile system.
  • Tutorials – We mentioned these before, but there are more than enough to get even the newest Usenet user started.
  • Integration – SABnzbd will integrate into most any Newsnab website.
