I think it's a solid release. Nothing earth-shattering by any means, but there is nothing wrong with releasing a new version that does nothing but concentrate on bug-squashing although the group list refinements are welcome. Nothing wrong with refining existing features, either.

I just hope the new .NET requirement doesn't bring out the .NET critics complaining about how .NET is evil and how it's a 'horrible' 20+ MB download for their Windows XP machines.

Cache feature is a welcome change, Double click for group header is logical.

That first thumbnail problem has bugged me for ages so I am happy to see some work on that.

While we are looking at custom fields, If you have a lot of custom fields there still isn't a scroll bar in tab mode.

I don't understand what these two actually mean:
Added column header to group list
Added group size to group list

I am guessing this is related to the 'grouped by...' options, to make the list displayed more logical but if 'group size' is there I can't see it so maybe I am wrong.

Either way it is great to see an update!

Cyo added the size column (number of series starting with that letter) and headers to group headers side panel: View-->Show Group Headers, or CRTL+Shift+G.

Ah OK I haven't used that for so long I had forgotten that was even there! Thanks.

Pity you can't click the header column number to sort by that, as that was an old feature request of somebody to sort by the number of books in a group (in other words a dynamic count variable would be useful).

The numbers do make that list easier to use when choosing which group to pick. I hadn't bothered with it for a while bcause it was often easier to filter and then scroll. Aonther subtle improvement would be for the selected element in the list to change to reflect which book you selected in the main list window. Tricky for multiple book selections but useful for contextualising a single book within a list.

Hello,

I just wanted to mention that I had to use this:

community.spiceworks.com/topic/306159-ma...owing-in-application

As my network shares were not appearing, this is not the program's fault, but just another windows annoyance. I am using Windows 10 by the way.

Thanks

Thanks for sharing this. I've run into this problem before with other programs. This should be a huge help.

The only issue I've had since updating to this new version is that now when I sync to the iOS version of CR, the library will do a rescan but not actually update visually. I have to completely close the app and reopen it to see the new comics and see that the read ones have been removed. This started after the new update was installed. I initially wanted to blame iOS 9, but I was syncing books and getting a proper library update prior to the 0.9.177 release.

I'm having the same issue.
Sync runs in CRIOS - though, a few times it has run, it doesn't show the progress/what books are sync'd.
Sync stops, new books are not shown.
If I close CRIOS completely and reopen, the new books are there.
