Eridanus has released an update for Baker, bringing it to version 1.4. Baker is a Usenet download utility designed to simplify downloading files from Usenet newsgroups. The update features performance enhancements including improved speed and Identity Preferences. According to Eridanus:
Eridanus today released Baker 1.4.0. Baker is an OS X program used to simplify the task of downloading files from and uploading files to Usenet newsgroups.
Among the enhancements in this release of the OS X utility designed to ease common newsgroup related activities are:
- Baker is now much faster than earlier releases
- Baker now provides an easy and convenient way to share your pictures with others in the newsgroup community. Simply select a newsgroup and select Post Some Pictures from the News Group Commands menu. Baker will open a Post Pictures window where you can select the pictures you want to post from a gallery of thumbnails
- Baker now includes an Identity Preference. This lets you store email address information that you use when posting pictures. If you want correspondence from the various newsgroups to which you have subscribed to be delivered to different email addresses, then the Identity Preference will do the job. When you are ready to post some pictures, simply select the appropriate Identity for the newsgroup and your email information will be automatically filled in for you
