Wow :ohmy: . Amazing as always!

I really like the script buttons on the tool bar, the Windows 7 taskbar updates, and the Smartlist updates.

It seems that fewer pages are automatically set to view as double pages. Whenever an image spans two pages it still displays correctly, but the rest of the comic will be in single pages where in 115 it would all be double unless it was a cover or the end of the comic. I didn't see anything about this in the change log. Do I have to enable "Two Page (Adaptive)" to restore the previous functionality?

Single page: Only single images.
Two Pages: Always double pages. Front covers are on the right. Missing pages (before double spread images) are filled with empty pages.
Two Pages (Adaptive): The old two page mode. Two pages but covers or pages before double spreads are displayed as single images.

Is the single page view recommended (if anything could be said to be "recommended")? I don't really have a strong preference either way. I'm just curious about the change.

If you're reading on a big monitor I would suggest: Two Page mode, margins on, realistic Comic Display, Page turn effect, nice background image :)

Single page is for tablets imho.

I have a few queries regarding these new features:

* NEW: Added smart wikipedia links to textbox/combobox popmenus in Comic Dialogs
How do I access this feature?..can't seem to find it..
* NEW: Added browser navigation
What exactly is browser navigation?
* NEW: ComicRack now supports elevated changing of file extensions
How do I do this?
* NEW: Added support for the new WebComic format
Please explain..
* NEW: Added favorites to library browser
I can only seem to add smartlists/reading lists as favorites. Can I add individual comics as favorites?


I would be grateful if somebody would tell me about these features, as I probably seem to be missing the obvious.. :unsure:
