aubng is a Usenet binary decoder implemented entirely in Perl5. It has a boatload of features, including: decoding of uuencoded and Base64 postings, assembling multi-part postings, remembering already seen binaries in a newsrc file, saving metadata about news postings, smart renaming of binaries with the same name, removal of duplicate binaries, and easy XML-based configuration. Aubng also features an extensible handler architecture, so it is easy to add your own features.

Release Notes: maxArticles support added. maxArticles may be specified for all groups or for a particular group, may be overridden with the argument --maxArticles, and --maxArticles=0 can be used to catch-up (mark all articles as read). Any file that has an unlisted extension will be rejected from the extensions list of the aubng config file. base64 decoding should now handle nearly all postings. Speed enhancements and statistics added.
Release Notes: RemoveDuplicatesHandler no longer deletes first article saved, minor fixes for the hasAllArticles method in ArticleGroup, and commented-out settings for username/password in the sample config file.
