I think we are reaching stable regions now with this release. All performance issues with very large libraries should now be fixed.

Along to all the small fixes, additions and fine tuning there is one nice new feature. Previously ComicRack defaulted to resetting the page zoom to 100% when changing to a new page. The new default is to do a quick zoom out and in again when changing pages.
The old behavior can still be set in preferences, though.

For a complete list of changes please see the change log in the file log.

Additionally to the direct download I've now also added a torrent of the same file. This is a small server with small resources and can be a little overwhelmed when a new ComicRack build is released.

So if you can, please download the torrent and keep it seeding. Thanks

To give you something to read with ComicRack, here are two of this years Eisner Award Nominations for Digital Comics. Download, open in ComicRack and enjoy.

This is kinda still part of the 0.9.137 series but I think why not create a new topic :)

Your opinion here.

This was another fast ComicRack update in the 0.9.137 category. We seem to have moved to RTM with the 0.9.140 build. Here are my thoughts on this release..
* CHANGE: Further speedup of list drawing (see OptimizedListScrolling in ComicRack.ini to turn off)
* CHANGE: Optimized library tree rebuilding
* CHANGE: Further optimizations for query cacher execution and update logic
Yes, it appears faster, even slightly fast than 0.9.139.
* CHANGE: Name parser now always correctly handles c2c
Finally, c2c and noads are shown their way out of the parsed series name. But, still if a filename includes TPB or HC, the parsed name includes these. Maybe next release will take care of the TPB & HC from the parsed name..

* CHANGE: When opening a new book zoom is reset to 100%
* CHANGE: Added Hardcover to the standard formats list
* CHANGE: If only a single book is selected in the list, the file name is displayed in the statusbar
Appreciated :-)
* CHANGE: Reduced possible thickness of 3D book display
Yes, it is a bit smaller in thickness, but yet it could be trimmed further:


Here, i would like to quote this post, and further my request for width/height/dimensions fields in the catalog tab:tcm1998 wrote:
In all fairness, to calculate the proper book dimensions you'll need to be able to enter the width and the height of the book, as well as some "factor" representing page thickness. I personally see it as a nice to have.
* CHANGE: Added "Set to all" button to list layout editor
Will come in handy sometimes!


* NEW: Added "Icons" column in comic list to show all the icons (format, publisher etc.)
Currently, this was really not needed. Icons are eye-candy, and are best suited to the tiles view or the thumbnails view (where, incidentally, they are lacking). The details view is more suited for organizational/overview purposes, where these, in my opinion, would be neglected. Still, it is an option, and users who like this feature can use it , while others can continue unaffected. However, in future, if we have support for characters and other icons, and the number of icons to be shown on a single book increase to a high number, this might prove useful. But, we will re-review it then.


* CHANGE: Fixed bottom margin of explorer view if no plugin pane is visible
Again, a 'duh' moment for me ... :blink:
This is ComicRack 11.04 RTM, and it rocks! Need I say more?

4.5 outta 5.

p.s. I downloaded it via the torrent, and it was a great idea. Now, seed you leechers, seed!! :evil:

Thanks cYo. It works nicely and feels faster.

The optimization process took much longer than usual, but that could just be my computer.

I think the torrent was a good idea and I'll be seeding for a while ;)

I also wanted to put out a thank you for using a torrent as a distribution method!

I haven't had a chance to give it a thorough run-through, but what I've seen I liked!

I can't get the new 100% zoom feature to stop when opening new comics. It does it regardless of my preference settings. I hate this new feature and would love to know of a workaround besides reinstalling an obsolete release.

More of an FYI than a bug. Not sure if it's a bug, or if I was just pushing my luck generating 1000's of thumbnails. I had 0.9.140 freeze up on me. After all the whining an complaining, I have finally converted everything to CBZ. Now, of course, that means all the thumbnails previously generated are no longer valid, so now I have to redo everything to generate new thumbnails. So, I've been scrolling through as I have time and letting it do its thing. Today it stopped generating thumbnails and had over 2100 tasks pending. Then when I tried to shut CR down, it sat there on the "Writing comic info to disk" dialog for a long time, 10+ minutes, before I ctrl-alt-del killed it. It was using 50% of the CPU and almost 500M of RAM at the time of death.
