With MSSQL it runs a lot faster however noticed one issue and that is default table design, for comic titles with non-standard characters (chinese / russian etc..) it wil fail to add them to the database as the column for ID and Data is not nvchar (unicode).

Fixed this by changing:

DBO.comics
Column id -> nvarchar(450)
Column data -> nvarchar (max)

Afterwards migrated my data from an old .xml database and the import went fine with no missing comics.

Well, we just got a new update to ComicRack for Windows. Not a major release, but it's progress.

The main point in this thread was the push to open source. An update does not address this concern.

You & I must be reading different threads. I've seen a couple vocal people calling for the release of the source code. However, I've seen just as many people stating they'd prefer that they'd rather not see ComicRack to an open source model. Most participants in this thread just wanted to see a new version released.

As for there being a 'push', until cYo acknowledges that he's entertaining the idea and there's a strategy being discussed to compensate him for the hard work he's put into the project over the years I won't take any pleas for a release to open source seriously.

He's obviously worked very hard on this program. It shows in every aspect of its operation. Serious question here: Why should he just give it to you (or anybody) while getting nothing tangible in return?
