This release brings the fulfillment of a long time user request: A Scan Information field. Use it to add whatever information you want to store about the origin or quality of the scan.

Additionally to the usual bug fixes various optimizations have been implemented. Especially the WebComics should now load faster and more consistent.

Starting this weekend I will make my first trip to the USA (A day-job business trip to a San Diego Conference which I plan to extend with a trip through South California). If I do not get lost in Death Valey or South Central LA, I'll be back in 3 weeks :)

have fun

* BUGFIX: Possible bugfix for initial server timeout with large libraries

This is finally fixed! Sharing large libraries, as long as you set a large enough timeout on the .ini, works PERFECTLY now. Just shared a 34k items library over a slow-ish connection and it worked perfectly.

Posted in the wrong forum category.

You found the problem and the solution :)
Should the default timeout value also be changed?

The current timeout of 300 seconds, 5 minutes, is enough to transfer close to 30 Mb worth of list over a 1mbit upload line.

Mine, with 34k items took 10 seconds more than that. So for me, the default wouldn't work. I don't know how common big libraries are, but to my knowledge there is no side-effect to setting the endpoint timeout longer, so i'd say change the timeout to 600 seconds and make it a nice 10 minute timeout.

But interested people could always read the .ini comments and change it themselves.

Like a bolt from the blue, comes this fast ComicRack release. Here are my thoughts..
-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-
* NEW: "Scan Information" field
Finally, finally.. it is here! The scan field. This quietly lies in the Plot & Notes tab (btw, the 'Plot & Notes' tab now should be renamed to something more meaningful). Good thing is that there is app-wide support for this, and we can choose it in the details column. All my scanner tags are in the Tags field, and will have to move them to the scan information field.... Probably, my friend Stonepaw will help me out! ;-)
* CHANGE: Nicer display of sort arrows and drop down button in column headers
* CHANGE: Nicer Gap Information arrows
The gap ones are good in that they do not stretch out as we widen the column.


* CHANGE: Added a question dialog before clearing data for books
Oooh my confirmation dialog.. where were you?


* CHANGE: (Shift-)Tab now also changes edit fields in detailed view (additional to Alt-Left, Alt-Right)
Lots of thanks for this one! :-)

* CHANGE: Nicer display of sort arrows and drop down button in column headers
I preferred the earlier ones.
-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-
* NEW: Folder combine mode can now be set to empty (additionally to and,or)
:angry: This is extremely sophisticated gibberish that is beyond the comprehension of my miniscule brain. Whatever does that mean, cYo? And, pray, what is this 'folder combine mode'?

A minor update release that brings on the Scan information field.

here:


'Empty' is useful for parent Folders containing a lot of lists/subfolders that would take too long to load everything and possibly freezing CR for a while.

This could be awesome. :) I just have to get home to try it out in practice.

Hi,

Thanks for all your hard work in all the recent updates :) . Is there a way to not overwrite the ComicRack.ini whenever I update? I have to reconfigure every time I upgrade ;) .

Thanks

cYo,

Is the new scan info field written to the xml file or only stays in the db?

Thanks!
