As expected with great change comes great opportunity for bugs and errors.
This is a hotfix release for 0.9.137 that should fix most of the problems.

"Feels" much faster, really nice. The font size on the new read/unread marker should be a bit larger, is kinda small when reading large numbers, and white text on yellow background is not very readable.

Overall, its the best performance update i have ever seen on comicrack.

Thanks,
fK

Something's not working right for me. ComicRack crashes a few seconds after it opens. The main window pops up, and I can see it scanning my smartlists for the new gauges, then it crashes. Not sure where to go from here with it.

Same here. Either it is stuck at the donation dialog, or if I quickly manage to skip the dialog, it crashes.

As mentioned on the download page, I have downloaded the last (fixed) version. It seems to be a major release, and I feel bad for me that I am not able to use it. :(

I've posted this in the bugs section: 0.9.137 crashes on startup

Okay, I give. Maybe it's because I'm up too early, but what do the Red/Yellow/Green mean? :)

"Live gauges for all lists for new/unread/all books" i guess it's clear or? :D

so is this the thread to report bugs, too?

my german translation has some english words inside... the view, grouping and stacking is in english. not that im care, but i bet you want to fix that :D and the context menu is english, too



and i found it has still the filter list bug (strg+click works fine, if you use wanna selsect a range of comics by shift+click it doenst work)
