It's been a long time since we last released a new version for the powerful obGrabber, which is the perfect tool for mass data migrating, automatic posting, content curing and data streaming.

In this new version we have a lot of bug fixed as well as improvised functions pulled into the system from the feedback of our dear customers. The silly 1969 date output bug that appeared when date data is in the wrong format is gone, and so do the bug with JHtml tool tip and wrong domain issues in Manual Post mode.

A bunch of improvements has also been made to add some functions required by our dear users and and give them more options to control the performance of obGrabber.

A Timer is now added to Auto Run options in obGrabber Global Configuration board, so you can make schedule for obGrabber Cron Job from the Client Side.

The Duplicated Processor can now receive an input field to check duplication from. You can choose an Adapter type to ensure a proper perfomance for the Duplication check, or use the default value to make it detect Adapter automatically. You can also enhance the duplication check with conditional command in the Where Clause option.
