ComicRack 0.9.123 released
1.. 2.. 3.. ComicRack is here :)
This is mainly a bug fix release with some small improvements.
I turned some of the multi-core optimizations introduced in 0.9.122 off by default as they seem to have caused problems for some users. You can always turn them on again in ComicRack.ini (your mileage may vary depending on your machine).
If you use the automatic scanner and have a, let's say, creative folder structure or you don't want to add the comics describing the hardship of Japanese schoolgirls automatically to the library, it is now possible to fine tune the scanner by putting comicrackscanner.ini files into folders. This way you can tell the scanner exactly what to do (ignore this folder, ignore sub folders).
This release also adds the Czech language pack.
ComicRack comes bundled with some language packs.
The problem is, that some of these have not been updated for quite some time and are really falling out of sync with the application. So if you think you're up to the task to update one of these abandoned packs follow these steps.
If you're using a language ComicRack does currently not support (and is not a right to left language), you can also add a new pack. ComicRack users in your local will thank you and praise your name :)
ComicRack 0.9.122 released
So finally here it is: the new ComicRack with multi-touch support. The usual gestures do the usual things (as shown in the video). Double tap toggles the navigation overlay, press and tap toggles the magnifier.
Smaller changes are: Tile view now supports stacking and the meta data has been extended with a Locations and Teams field.
This version also marks the transition to .NET 4, so the installer may update your local .NET installation to this version. As there are quite a lot of changes under the hood, some bugs may have crept in. Report your bugs here and your general comments about this version here.
If you like ComicRack, please consider making a donation (you can also donate multiple times btw :)). This project needs your continuing support to keep it running.
ComicRack 0.9.122 running on Windows 7
I did a quick demo video with my webcam showing off the upcoming multi-touch user interface for ComicRack.Just imagine using this on one of the upcoming touch tablets. Sorry for the bad image quality, but a webcam is only a webcam :)
ComicRack 0.9.121 released
Though mainly a bugfix release, this version adds two new features:
- You can now tell ComicRack to ignore once from the library removed eComics during scans
- Scripts can now define an accompanying configuration script accessible from the Scripts Manager.

ComicRack 0.9.120 released
This is a bug fix release.
Version 0.9.119 has a ugly memory leak when using local sharing. Also the "!" in the search browser is working again. For a full list, as usual, read the detailed change list for the release.
You can comment on this release in the user form.
As a side note, makeuseof.com has done a very nice review of ComicRack.
Year after year, while working on ComicRack, I'm still surprised of the low visibility of this project. The net is still ruled by CDisplay (I think last updated 5 years ago) and Comical (4 years dead). Here's a little google statistic visualizing this phenomenon.
Anyway, as always, hf
