Comic Vine Scraper 1.0.17 is now available.

There were no new bug reports in the last version of the scraper, which gave me some time to tackle a couple of long-standing problems and feature requests, namely issues 5, 12, 20, 24, and 26.

Of particular interest:

- the comic book preview window is now re-sizable.
- all window locations are now "remembered".
- scrapes can now be properly cancelled at any time.

Also note that the first time you run 1.0.17, your saved configuration (i.e. those checkboxes in the first dialog) will be reset to default values. This is because I completely changed the format of the file that the configuration is stored in. Just put your settings back to the way you like them and click 'save' and everything will go back to working like it did before. ;)

Enjoy!

Yessir, checked everyone of these and they are working just fine !

I am very happy with this version's performance, as it is much faster than previous versions. It just comes up in a jiffy, does its thing before I can say yabbadabbadoo, and then goes away, waiting for the next kill. The initial (very first) time, it took time to come up with the configurations dialog box, but since then it been like... CVS on steroids !! :woohoo: :woohoo: :woohoo:

It appears that now (or probably from version 1.0.116 onwards)the script has entered phase 2, where there are no major/minor bugs or crashes. Medium-term and long-term enhancements may become the priority now. Right, cbanack ! Man, great job.. just keep on going is all I can say!! :)

Thanks guys, I'm glad 1.0.17 it seems to be working well for everyone. I haven't had any more bug reports yet, either, so maybe the scraper really is stable now.

@600WPMPO: I like the phrase "waiting for the next kill". Perhaps I should change some of the buttons in the script to read "Next Kill" instead of "OK". :lol:
