Newshosting announced this week – v1.3.2 Newsreader Release
Ashburn, VA. July 25, 2012 — NEWSHOSTING, the recognised leader in global Usenet newsgroup access, today announced the release of its newest browser version, v1.3.2. This new release enhances OS platform support, end-user functionality and the speed to deliver a better Usenet experience more than ever to Newshosting subscribers worldwide.
Newshosting v1.3.2 Features:
The latest reader supports Windows 8 and Mac OSX 10.9 Mountain Lion, ensuring that the Newshosting browser, already the fastest and most feature-packed newsreader on the market, is optimised for the next generation of operating systems. Other key upgrades include an updated database of 3rd party libraries like SSL and UnRar, improved support for Mac OS X 10.7 and enhanced thread connection functionality. Together, this suite of upgrades further leverages the award-winning Newshosting browser as the leading newsreader on the market.
Users on all Newshosting plans, including the special 21 day/30 GB free trial available through July 31, can download a free, full-featured copy of the Newshosting browser. At its core, the Newshosting browser allows users to search, browse and preview Usenet content with unprecedented ease. Many Usenet clients require a complicated configuration process. With Newshosting, there is nothing to configure—just login and begin your Usenet experience, complete with easy search, super-fast transfers and auto-PAR and auto-UnRAR.

This announcement also comes just ahead of Newshosting hitting a major 4 year retention milestone. Newsgroup retention is the length of time that a newsgroup post is available to subscribers. 4 year’s worth of retention means that Newshosting subscribers can access posts that were added to Usenet newsgroups up to 1,424 days ago, with 99% completion. The Newshosting client allows direct access to the full retention spool along with up to 60 simultaneous 256-bit SSL encrypted connections — the most offered by any Usenet provider.
