Version 1.1.0 is out!

Well ... A new year, lots of free time, so here it is : the new, improved, still very cluttery version of hellaGUI.

Nice new features and under-the-hood tuning. It should now take 1 or less percents of your CPU power, as it doesn't update the, now complete, queue list on every update anymore and as it's calling the XML-RPC daemon instead of parsing hellanzb's text output.

This also means that I can show more informations about the current download, and that the display changes when hellanzb is correcting or decompressing files.... read more

hellaGUI: major bug fix and some minor ranting

A GTK/python frontend to the news leecher "hellanzb" providing most functionalities available from the "hellanzb daemon" and Drag and Drop file-enqueuing.Hellanzb can be obtained through your distro's package manager or at http://www.hellanzb.com

initial release

This is my first pyGTK project (and I'm not really experienced with Python, to say the least, so anything in the code that looks like it could have been done better probably could have been done better.

Anyway, planed features for V1.1 :

* ALL queued NZBs in a scrollable area
* Add a "start/stop daemon" button
* Pulsating progressbar during processing (hellaGUI looks like hellanzb can't connect during processing at the moment)
* A button to open the download directory
* A hellanzb configuration editor... read more
