SABnzbd-0.4.0 Beta5 is released

Postby shypike » May 12th, 2008, 1:27 pm

We're very happy to present the Beta-5 release of SABnzbd-0.4.0.

queue.sab and bytes.sab will now have a version identifier in their names.
This prevents the newer release from refusing to work with an old queue and will
not require the user to erase the old queue. The old queue can even
be used again by the older release.
This release uses queue7.sab and bytes7.sab.
Note that using --clean will remove BOTH queues.

NOTE: This is a Beta release.
If you want to avoid risks, keep working with release 0.3.4.

Please give feedback in the Beta forum and not in the regular Help and Bugs forums.

* Queue incompatibility between Beta2 and Beta4 was not detected,  causing problems.
   See remark above.
* Many TV Season support issues.
* Many Smpl and Plush skin issues.
* Unix permissions for job folders now also covers parent folders.

* Occasional hangup in shutdown (due to UrlGrabber)

Just to be clearer on the queue/history stuff:
Upgrading to SABnzbd 0.4.0Beta5 will give you a fresh queue and history.
You can still use go back to the old versions if you wish to finish off the remaining queue after upgrading.

However you should be able to keep the queue and history you make in beta5 all the way into 0.4.0Final
