Software – AniFetch
Okay, after much delay, it’s here.
AniFetch is a free software which notifies you when someone releases something that you’re specifically interested in, on most anime torrent sites. But in fact, you can use the program for a much wider variety of websites.
Key Features :
- Fetches newest and specific releases from popular anime torrent sites
- Can also fetch news from many other types of websites (as long as it has an RSS page)
- Up to 80% Memory usage reduction with the “Optimize memory Usage” Option, sometimes even higher
- Load / Save templates for quickly adding/editing websites
- Program icon can be hidden from taskbar and work in the background
- History window keeps track of the latest 70 notifications
- Instant access to the file from the news (if any)
- Low CPU usage
Future updates :
- Nothing planned yet.

Note : Some Anti-Virus softwares may wrongly flag AniFetch as a Trojan/Virus. This is because AniFetch is coded using AutoIt (which is often used for bot programs on games). However, here this is a false positive.
I went through a lot of testing, but nothing’s ever perfect. If you have any problem/suggestion/critic, feel free to post them here. Thanks
Thanks to Knoobie and rhizzu for their ideas regarding this version, and everyone else for their feedback/bug reporting.

[Fixed] When the notification window was visible, buttons would not trigger until the window had dissapeared.
[Fixed] The notification sound would incorrectly play in some cases.

[Added] Button to “pin” the notification window.
[Added] Button to immediately close the notification window.

Thanks to Anon and rhizzu for their ideas regarding this version.
[Released] Version 18.104.22.168
[Updated] Some extra code for URLs which could, sometimes, not be processed properly because of some special characters.
[Added] Helpfile “AniFetch.chm” to help users in using AniFetch.
[Added] New “warn” icon in the tray area. This icon will appear if there is a new notification (only if “Show Notification Window” is unchecked, or if it is checked with the “Only when not in fullscreen” option set.

[Added] Buttons “Fetch Now”, “Minimize to tray” and “Open help file” (main window).
[Added] Buttons “Clear selection” and “Clear all” to clear one or all entries from the history (history window).
[Added] Tag “[:NEW:]” will be added for each new “unread” entry in the history (history window). This will only happen if the option “Show Notification Window” is unchecked, or if it is checked with the “Only when not in fullscreen” option set.
[Removed] UPX compression for AniFetch.exe and Updater.exe, resulting in bigger files, but less false positive detections from anti-viruses softwares.
[Fixed] Typo “Optionnal”
[Released] Version 22.214.171.124
[Fixed] Conflict where the program would overwrite the “last save path” when using the “Load template” button instead of using the “last load path”.
[Released] Version 126.96.36.199
[Fixed] Added some string normalizations to prevent some rare errors when fetching data.
[Added] Template support. You can now load and save templates for both the “Add” and “Edit” websites windows. This will load/save all the input fields (8 of them) from/in a file (*.atpl). Program will remember the last directory you used to load or save the templates.
[Released] Version 188.8.131.52
[Fixed] Added a variable verification which should prevent errors like “Subscript used with non-array variable” from appearing.
[Updated] Isolated the fetching function (inside the code) to allow better variable separation and initialization between each website.
[Released] Version 184.108.40.206
[Added] Some extra variables re-initializations. It should (I hope) fix some rare errors when fetching websites.

[Fixed] Fetch timer would incorrectly resume in a particular situation.
[Released] Version 22.214.171.124
[Updated] Program’s encryption has been slightly changed. This should remove false positive detections from several anti-virus programs (please note that this does not change anything about the installer. It only applies to the program executables themselves).
[Added] “Edit” button to edit an existing website.
[Updated] The history list’s will now always show the latest fetched news on top of history, and the oldest ones at the bottom.
[Fixed] The history list’s vertical scrollbar will now properly show itself when reaching more than 10 websites in history.

[Fixed] Program would not get the right torrent link if it was located before the “Title tag” on a same line.
[Released] Version 126.96.36.199
[Updated] History now saves up to 70 entries. This is to avoid overlapping, as the program reads through the history to avoid duplicate notifications about news you were already notified of.
