Check yourself but calibre is opensource so any can make the same plugins for it.
I'm using it for books and ComicRack for comics but Calibre has the same customisation capabilities like CR.
And speed is depends on your hardware, with 50.000 books in the library on metedata edit sametime takes 2-5 second on books but sometimes doesn't.
It has the same CV plugin.
"...it detect duplicates" :P
I'm prety sure it can be a successor of the CR if some make the effort and creating the same Library Organazer and Data Manager plugin for Calibre or translating them to Calibre because it's OpenSource. Everything can be stay the same, settings files, etc.

I have 65,000 comics already scraped using ComicRack. Do you know of a plug in for Calibre that will read the metadata like Ubooquity and ComicStreamer will do?

I'm going to editing the first two post instead of spamming the this topic like "Comicrack is dead". It's 10 pages of bullshit.

I think Calibre is fine for books, but it has a massive issue with book updates. It takes FOREVER to write each update when you change an entry. It also does a lot of moving your books around on you. I don't really think it's a viable option to replace ComicRack. Maybe it could be forked, but I think the needs are different enough that it would be more work than starting from scratch or contributing to something like YacReader.

Calibre is pretty good for books and is what I use. However, it can not utilise a file based library organiser script! Calibre uses it's own folder and file naming structure that is not configurable. This works fine for books as they have authors and titles but in my experience it does not work very well for comics.

Of course the idea of a program that is a database for your files, as both Calibre and ComicRack are, is intended to bypass having to organise the file system. However, I think for most of us who use CR we like having our comics organised in the file system in a particular way.

well, even the most basic of us use the default settings on LO. Publisher, Series. It's just one directory off of Calibre which only uses Author.

I've used Calibre for years to prep my ebooks... and while I think that we are going to eventually need a successor for ComicRack, I don't see Calibre being the one. I think we are going to need something developed specifically for comics by someone who understands how people like to organize their comics and the process of adding on a weekly basis, and all the other aspects of our comic libraries, etc...
