Changes from 1.4-7 to 1.5(enz)
- Headers and bodies of articles can be downloaded separately if the
"delaybody" option is set. In this case, if someone attempts to read a
message body he gets a text telling him that the message has been marked
for download by fetch. The files in $SPOOL_DIR/interesting.groups are
used for storing the numbers of marked messages.
- The complete rereading of the newsgroup list from the remote server is
done less frequently now (READ_INTERVALL in leafnode.h set to 90 days).
Instead, fetch uses the NEWGROUPS command every time it is run.
- Some changes were made concerning the pseudo mail that is shown when a
group is opened for the first time (telling some infos about leafnode).
It did not work satisfyingly before.
- Blocking of certain newsgroups is possible.
