The goal being to make getting files from Usenet (e.g.: Giganews Newsgroups) as hands-free as possible. Once fully installed, all thats required is moving an nzb file to the queue directory. The rest; fetching, par-checking, un-raring, etc. is taken care of by hellanzb.

It supports Newzbin.com, bandwidth throttling, and multiple Usenet servers. The download queue can be rearranged and NZB files can be added using drag’n’drop. It can be easily configured without having to manually edit configuration files. Supported languages included English, Dutch, Danish, French, and German.
