KLibido

KLibido

KLibido is a KDE program to download encoded articles from the usenet news service, using the nntp protocol. It supports multiple servers, multiple download threads per server, automatic joining and decoding of articles.

KLibido is not a newsreader. It doesn't let you easily display the articles - only their subject, and it discards all non-binary posts.

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 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
  • Group categories and aliases
  • 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
