KLibido is a KDE usenet news grabber for GNU/Linux. Its features include:
- Automatic joining of multi-part posts
- Automatic decoding of posts, using the uudeview library (yEnc supported) or an internal decoder
- Multiple servers support, with priorities and fallback if an article fails on a server and is present on another server
- Queue balancing: KLibido spreads the bytes load across servers with the same priority
- Multiple download threads per server support, with the ability to add or remove threads "on the fly"
- Gracefully handles network errors, timeouts, disconnects and out-of-space errors
- Acceptable (at least, by me :) memory usage (80-100 MB VMRss with several large groups open)
- Filter articles by subject and state (read, unread, complete, incomplete)
- Multi tabbed interface in IDEAl mode, to open multiple newsgroups at once
- KParts interface for previewing posts (.nfo, images, etc...) inside the program
- .nzb support
- Download queue management: Pause (and resume) the queue Pause (and resume) the single posts Drag and drop the items around to change the download order Cancel download Lists of finished and failed items Granularity, with the ability to see the progress/status of the whole post and of the single articles of the post The progress of the download is saved and survives program exits/crashes
