- Solved the exception errors that some people reported while closing GrabIt;
- Batch Import button in Batch screen allows the import of NZB files directly into the batch;
- Batch Import button in Batch screen allows the import of BNS ( files directly into the batch;
- Auto shutdown feature now waits until all items are decoded / processed before shutting down the system;
