I'm happy to announce that Nav.Net Beta 3.5 is ready to download. In this release some most waited features are added. I've fixed some bugs and improved many parts of the program. There are many things to improve and my todo list is still filled with new thoughts. The main source of the all improvements and bug fixes are the Technical Board of our forum. I thank to all of our forum members for their efforts to make suggestions and report bugs. If you want to help us to please join us. OK here are the new features:
- Subdirectory patterns: You can define a subdirectory creation method for downloads. For example when you download content from photobucket it will create Galleries/Photobucket/[Albumname] subdirectory and download files there. It is possible to add different target subdirectories for another sites. If nothing defined Nav.Net will save files like it does before.
- If there is a local file with same name instead of downloading it again download manager will simply skip the file.
- If download manager finds image from IE cache instead of redownloading the file again, it will copy the cached file.
- To decrease filename length for downloaded files, a hash string added to filename instead of full url.
- A counter number added to downloaded files sort them with the order you downloaded. It is extremely useful if filenames are random generated.
- Download button behaviour changed. If you click download button it will download only vaild image links. But web page should be complately loaded. If it is still loading when you click the download links button, it will add all links like before.
- Extraction Patterns: When you are surfing gallery pages instead of clicking all thumbnails you may want to see all big images at once or download all with a single click. It was possible for auto generated galleries. Now it is possible for internet sites. There is a default extraction method that works for most thumbnailed gallery pages but for some sites additional info should be added to tell Nav.Net how to extract images. These are Extraction Patterns. This is a work in progress and it will support more sites for next releases.
- Fusker Generator Profiles: When you start a fusker session in Fusker Generator before starting search it will try to get some results from some known sources. These patterns are useful for adding new sources or removing existing ones. It is also possible to add some sources for servers other than photobucket. This is a work in progress. It will be possible to change whole FG behaviour for different sites in future releases.
- Persistent Fusker Sessions: The new "Sessions" tab in FG is used to persist your FG sessions. After pausing your session go to Sessions tab and click [Save] button. At a later time you can select a saved session from list and continue it by clicking the [Continue] button. There is also a nice feature in sessions tab. When you switch to that tab it will dump all found file names in the Active Session Info box.
- Search Files & Search Directories check boxes added to FG settings for temproraly disabling whole file or directory tests.
- Some additional tests added to prevent errors that happens while using invalid file formats.
- If you add the + sign and keep the search behaviour normal, FG will act different when it finds an image. It will start from the begining, decreases interval to 1 (even there is a limit), and continue to work instead of giving its turn to next file format. It will remember what files it checked before so it will not double check files.
- It is possible to import & export some pattern files.
- Auto Searches will ask for keywords if keyword needed checkbox enabled. I've updated "Infinite TGP Extraction" pattern to demonstrate it.
- It is possible to add Nav.Net formatted URL's as a link into forum. To generate the neccessary bbcode easily, wile displaying the gallery click "Generate Forum Code" menu item from the display options submenu located on the left side of the format box.
