New ComicRack Homepage

Finally I got around to at least made it usable. Head over to to see it in all its glory :). It has a new forum and also a wiki for the ComicRack documentation.

Dynamic Zoom

Again and again I read that ComicRack only supports fixed zoom steps. This is not true.

Hold down the middle mouse button in the reader and move the mouse up down, or alternatively, enter a custom zoom value in the toolbar.

I guess a wiki would be cool thing...
