0301 
0302 * kwooty now handles server response 423 (no such article number) which could be responsible of bug #2955501.
0303 
0304 
0305 
0306 Version 0.3.0:
0307 --------------
0308 - libuu decoding library has been dropped.

0311         advantages : - internal yenc decoding is much more quicker than before
0312                      - crc integrity of downloaded files is now checked (allowing to enable next feature)
0313         drawbacks : other usenet coding formats as uuencoded, base64 data are not handled
0314                
0315 - Par2 files are downloaded only if they are needed to recover broken files (configurable in settings).
0316         This feature is enabled by default and should be safe :
0317         if integrity of all downloaded rar files are OK, par2 files are not downloaded but if extracting process (for wathever reason) fails,
0318         then par2 files will be downloaded and classical archive verifying, repairing, extracting steps will occur.
0319 
0320 - System shutdown feature added : it is now possible to schedule system shutdown (halt, standby, suspend, hibernate)
0321  either when jobs are finished or at a given precise time.

0324

0326    
0327 - Nzb content sorting improvement : all par2 files are now placed at the bottom of the list when nzb files are added.
0328 
0329 - workaround for correctly handling  .nzb files encoded with us-ascii format. 
0330 
0331 
0332 Version 0.2.0:
0333 --------------
0334  - Save/Restore pending downloads when application is closed/open. 
0335    Queued downloads are also saved automatically every 5 minutes in order to be restored at next session even if system is halted while kwooty runs.
0336  - Kwooty now handles Nzb files added from external applications (internet browser or file manager by example) by "open with..." dialog box.
