  GrabIt :: Development information  
As with all software, GrabIt has some known problems which haven't been fixed yet.

The 'large group bug'
  GrabIt is not able to handle the headers of really large groups at this moment. The maximum amount of headers GrabIt can handle depends on your computer. When GrabIt hits its limit on your system, it will download all the headers, but will not show them. Or it will be stuck processing them for a really long time (hours).
NOTE 1: Since release 1.5.2 there is an option to limit the maximum amount of headers per group.
NOTE 2: Since release 1.6.0 GrabIt features new technology (Usenet Browser) to view the contents of a newsgroup without downloading headers.
