This is an interim release while working on page transitions. A few bugs have been fixed, and page navigation performance has been improved.

The only new feature is a rotation lock button in the reader view.

Please note: the sync lists are now displayed in the "eComics" group, the sync group has been removed.

Many thanks for the new version, especially for the rotation lock! :-)

And I also love the addition of the 'sync lists' to the 'main 'eComics' group. It saves me the hassle of every time going back & forth in these 2 views. :)

But, a lot of bugs this time: :( :(

The library now reloads every time I start the app.

Rotating the iPad during reloading gets this stretched-out look:



On starting, the default list (All eComics) doesn't load any comics. Going into any other list loads the books & then they all show up in their respective lists.

Filmstrip at the bottom are not working anymore. Tapping on any thumbnail doesn't load the page.

On opening any stack, the 'go back' button (that was earlier seen at the top) is no longer to be seen.

Spawn #214 opens like this:



Please note that that I read this last night on the previous version & it opened just fine. It still opens fine if not opened from within a stack.

And once you manage to get a book in this mode, ComicRack is now stuck. No matter which list you go to, it'll only show the Spawn stack. Have a look below, where I am in the All eComics list with the filter option set to All:



I'll test more later today & report back. So far, it is only Spawn #214 that is working odd.

Ok..I've got the bug lined out. It is just not Spawn #214, every book when opened from a stack will give errors.

Firstly, stack your books:




Next, go into one stack. Note that the go back button at the top (with the name of the stack) is missing:




Now, open any book from the stack to get the rest of the errors (as I posted above):

Sorry for the inconvenience. So, is this issue only present when opening comics from within a stack? Or does it also behave strange when opening from a "regular" (not stacked) list?

Only from a stack.

Regular (non-stacked) lists are working nicely.

If you mean the progress bar that appears when you start CRIOS, that is CRIOS loading files. That is normal behavior and should usually be much faster than the "Reload Library" command in CRIOS. If it is not, then please post and we're gonna find a solution.

I can confirm 600WPMO's issues: no "letterboxing" strips and locked in stack views.

EDIT: THe missing letterbox strips/background are apparantly only missing if you open a book from a stack. Sounds like stacks are the culprit here
