Due to the fact that there was absolutely no other developers supporting this project, and that I'm going to face the A-level examination next year. I can no longer work on this project and all the progress on this project will stop from now on.

This version mainly fixes the date format bug in beta1, which makes it hang when it's scanning news servers when the day of month is <10.
Other additions include minor GUI bugfixes, and some speedups.
Bugfix: newsgroup scanner hangs
Bugfix: network status doesn't resize correctly
Bugfix: recorded seeds are not counted after download is finished
Bugfix: automation panel in preferences is now initialized correctly
Bugfix: main window does not pop up when BA is opening file thru IPC
The date and time parser for newsgroup headers adheres to RFC 2822 now
Changed the priority setting from "idle" to "below normal" when BA is minimized
* Please report if this reduces BA's crashes or not
Improved the network status refresh algorithm a bit to increase its efficiency

Beta1 is out now! It should have solved most major bugs present in the alpha versions.
Improvements in this beta version include
1. A new option to let BitAnarch start with Windows. BA can now reside on the Windows taskbar peacefully and whenever you double click on a .torrent file, the resident BA instance will be called up to download it.
2. A much faster newsgroup scanning algorithm has been implemented. If you have a good broardband connection, scanning medium sized BitTorrent newsgroups is just a matter of a blink of the eye! You'll notice significant speed up in the scanner even if you have a slower connection.

BitAnarch is getting more stable and mature DAILY! Thanks to all the bug testers out there, all your postings to hkpcug.opensource really accelerates the development process a lot! BitAnarch is the most compact BitTorrent client ever. It is available in three languages, with multiple downloads support, full unicode filename support, newsgroup scanning, automation, drag and drop support, etc. you name it. With a RAM usage of less than 10MB!
Changes in 1.0.5-alpha3:
A faster newsgroup scanning algorithm is implemented
The newsgroup scanner is now compatible with most newsgroup servers
A better algorithm for refreshing the network status list is implemented
A proper IPC algorithm is implemented
Bugfix: unicode filenames not parsed correctly at the command line
Bugfix: the vertical line in "Newsgroups" tab is not displayed
Bugfix: file details does not work occasionally
Bugfix: files are not released properly
Bugfix: files cannot be resumed on some really fast machines

BA 1.0.5 will be delayed for a few days, because I'm busy at my schoolworks and university courses recently.
Sorry for any inconvenience
You can find some preliminary screenshots in news://news.hkpcug.org/hkpcug.opensource for the new UI and i18n support, though they're already pretty old.
Stay tuned for any updates :)
