What works



Header downloads


Group Selections

filters etc.  Pretty much everything.  Installs, works, extremely useable other than the odd glitches noted below.

What does not

Network throttling, seems to drop connections from time to time when throttling is enabled.

NZB Loads from Ubuntu desktop not working.  Have to open them from within Newsbin.  In other words you can't open an .nzb outside of Newsbin and have newsbin open with that list pre-loaded as it does in Windows.

Display of bandwidth/throughput get's corrupted from time to time.  Dissapears.

Using 'fast' browser option, you will not get instant refreshes of folders.  Take this default switch off in 'options' to use standard file browser and it works perfectly.

Additional Comments

This is a pretty stable program to run in Wine, other than extremely minor things as mentioned above.
