This release brings big changes and new options for the WebComic engine. All the new stuff is documented in the wiki about WebComics. This build also fixes a critical bug when saving complex smart lists.

As usual, for all the changes see the download link. You can comment on the new version here.

Speaking of WebComics: additionally to all the ready made WebComics there is now a script available in the WebComics section of the User Forum that basically allows to create comics from almost every comic website (Mangas, strips etc.). Give it a try. Best of all, if you have the Android client you can also synchronize these WebComics to your Android mobile or tablet and read them offline.

And don't forget to jump into the User Forum and meet lots of like minded fellow Rackers and Comic fans :)

Looking great. Nothing too major cosmetically changed, but some stuff under the hood, eh? If it makes it easier to get webcomics, I'm all for it. :)

It seems as of 149 (or maybe 147 or 148 - I upgraded from 146 to 149)I can no longer drag and drop comics from Windows Explorer to ComicRack - I used to be able to drag and drop comic files onto the "Library" list in the list view, but now it just shows the "no" drop cursor.

Drag and drop is working fine. Maybe you are trying to drag-drop into some other list than library.

Apologies if I'm being redundant here, but I thought a little image would help as well: You have to drop your files in the Library "line" (highlighted in blue in the snapshot below). Anywhere else in the side bar, and the file will not be dropped.

Yeah, I know that's the drop target since I've always done that to add comics to ComicRack - that's what's no longer working for me. I can't drop anywhere now, not even the Library line in the sidebar.

For the record, I'm running on Windows 7 64-bit.
