Thanks for the kind words guys, I'm glad you're liking the new release!

I had to look it up at the urban dictionary... (http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=wang), but I digress

Found a small issue with the new version.

The new feature that shows the cover of the scraped issue (not just the 1st in the volume) doesn't seem to work with .5 issues. Might be the case with other odd numbers (like -1) but I haven't checked.

Outside of that, everything works like a dream and the new version is a joy to use, especially with the new features. :)

Hrmmmm... Should I have posted this on your actual issue tracker thing or was this ok?

************* EDIT: Forgot to add, although the Publisher/Imprint feature is AMAZING, I've already reached the limit on how much text the advanced feature will hold. *************

Either place is fine.

Could you give me an example of one (or more) issues where it didn't work? If you could mention the issue's exact filenames, that would be helpful too. I just tried it with "Avenging Spiderman 15.1" and "The Invincible Ironman 500.1", as well as some issue 0 comics, and it seemed to work fine.

Oops just a little oversight on my part there--that one'll be easy to fix. :laugh:

Sure, and sorry, I should have thought about that ahead of time. :)

The issue was:

www.comicvine.com/the-living-corpse-the-...r-of-kala/37-230379/

and I manually edited the issue number (from proposed value from file name "The Living Corpse 0,5") to issue number ".5". I don't remember what issue it showed, but it wasn't the 1/2 issue.

*********** EDIT: There is more to the filename (scanner etc.) I just didn't know if that was appropiate, so I cut that out while leaving it named exactly without that **************

Ok, I figured it out. ComicRack treats issue numbers as Strings, not as actual numbers (that way you can have issue numbers like 1A). The upshot of this is that ".5" and "0.5" are two different strings, even though they are the same number. (Unless you are a programmer, this may not make sense.)

Basically, if you had manually set the number to "0.5" instead of ".5", it would have worked.

Regardless, I'll fix the scraper up so that in the future, it will work either way.

Thanks for the bug reports! Keep 'em coming!
