ComicRack v0.9.12 released

So here's the hotfix for the favorites bug. I also added a small control for pen users to make scrolling in big lists easier (look in the lower right corner in lists).

List of changes:

  • NEW: Added a trackball like control to the lists for easier scrolling with pens
  • BUG: Fixed crash when adding Favorites Folder containing no files

Bug in Favorites

So i made a crashing bug into the favorites browser when using it with empty folders.

Stay tuned for .12 build today. I can't stand having a buggy version out there :)

ComicRack v0.9.10 released

Here we go:
  • NEW: Added Month to meta data
  • NEW: Added "Full Screen" Button to the toolbar
  • NEW: Browser can now be docked left/right/bottom
  • NEW: Option to close browser when opening a new eComic
  • CHANGE: Switched over to unrar.dll - maybe this fixed some cbr issues
  • CHANGE: Removed non working Library Folder from Preferences Dialog
  • BUG: Fixed background scan crash with non existing paths
  • BUG: Fixed writing of meta comic information to files
Because of the writing meta info bug, the last versions of ComicRack did not write any changes to the meta data to the file. If you want to update the files with the latest information, select all your books, do a Get Info... and change a property you are not using anywhere (say Editor). Hit Ok. This will update all the data in the selected files. Do again a Get Info and change the Editor property back. Of course you only have to do this, if you WANT to write your meta info into the eComic files.

In the next days I will start adding a FAQ section to the forum.

Planned release for the weekend

There will be a new release on the weekend.

At least it should have fixes for the scan network shares issue and also the issue for not importing exising meta information from eComics.

If there's some time, I'll also add the long planned Rename/Move/Convert feature.
I'm also looking currently into python to add scriptability to ComicRack.

And the Forum is still open for your suggestions and praise :)

Digg it!

As some good soul has put ComicRack on Digg, maybe some folks can head over and press the digg button :)
