Changes in the Free Android version
Today I released new versions of ComicRack for Android. They introduce much better bookmark navigation, a GotoPage function and lots of other small fixes.
It also introduces a new 100 book USB sync limit for the Free Version. I know that there will be people complaining about this and I do understand their feelings. But what is the reason behind this change?
In the next 2-3 months CRIOS (ComicRack for iOS) will be released. There is no free version planed for iOS.
So to level the playing field with the Android version, where currently the free version is basically the same as the Full Version except of some annoying ads, I decided to introduce this limitation. I thought long and hard about what limit is best and settled for 100 books. This should be enough for your daily commute or even your weekend trip.
Also, this limit is just for synchronization.
You can still copy as many books manually to the device, scan them into the library and read them with ComicRack.
ComicRack 0.9.161 released
This is a maintenance release with some new features.
The Catalog field Released Date has been added. This is meant for the date the book was actually in the store (the published date is normally a few months in the future).
The Device Dialog for synchronizing your mobile device has now an option to only displayed checked lists and also has some new commands to copy setups between devices.
ComicRack 0.9.160 released
This release finally introduces the long requested Day field for the Published date. Additionally the collapsed/expanded state of groups are now remembered.
For the complete list of updates and changes see the description for the download. For any comments about this version jump over to the user forum.
UPDATE: There was a bug in the original upload. If you've downloaded the 0.9.160 release in the first hour of release, please redownload again.
UPDATE 2: Three times a charm. Another small bug one crept in. Just redownload. I'm doing an incremental release today, it seems.
ComicRack for iOS Alpha 2

This is a short (and sometimes out of focus demo of the current Alpha build). The UI is now close to final. I expect the beginning of the closed Alpha test in the next 14 days.
Target release time for the App on the market is still end of Q1.
ComicRack 0.9.159 released
This release brings some great new features. Here's a small screenshot:
The new expanded cover view in detailed mode can be turned on by moving the cover column to the first or last column.
Also grouping and stacking now supports combining up to three criteria (the screenshot example used Series+Volume). Combining is done by clicking the additional criteria while pressing the Ctrl-Key.
ComicRack 0.9.158 released
This is a bug fix release for 0.9.157. It should solve all the main issues 0.9.157 tried to fix or even introduced.
USB sync should now really work with Windows 8 and also again with Windows 7. The delete Comics dialog has been tweeked according to feedback from users and high DPI support for Windows 8 has been further improved.
