Projects / ComicMaster


ComicMaster is a CBR/CBZ reader for comic archives. It is able to open CBR and CBZ archives and display image contents. It allows you to add and remove single images, reorder images, and rename images in archives. It has some functionality to verify archives, and provides means to conveniently sort archives in a different folder. Those features are fairly well tested. It allows you to load a database plugin to manage comics in a PostgreSQL database, and it allows you to add meta-information in XML format to archives. The implementation of these features is currently sketchy at best.

    Release Notes: The main change is the new configuration database, which unfortunately is not compatible with old configuration files. This change was necessary to allow you to identify a comic not only by name, but by name and volume. Several minor improvements have been added. For example, the window caption is updated when more than one comic slot is used and the current slot changes. Now unused titles can not only be hidden, but also "unhidden" again. The function that made image rotations permanent was broken and has been fixed. A few help dialogs have been added.

      Release Notes: The transition from qmake to cmake did not go as smoothly as it initially appeared to be. A bug in CMakeLists.txt prevented the creation of necessary config files. This did not affect users of previous versions of ComicMaster, but new installations were not functional. This bug has been fixed.

        Release Notes: The build system was changed from qmake to cmake and the INSTALL documentation was improved. Installing ComicMaster is now as easy as: "cmake . && make && make install". "cmake . && make package" creates a .deb archive suitable for Debian/Ubuntu. This feature is still experimental. Some minor bugs were fixed.

          Release Notes: Several crash bugs have been removed. The PostgreSQL database plugin is fully working again. There are some minor performance improvements. There is one new feature: the ability to do a pattern search on filenames in a user-defined list of paths.

            Release Notes: This is a bugfix release. Fileselectorbox is resizable again. The database plugins were redesigned. A severe SQL injection vulnerability was removed. Binary packages for i386 and amd64 are now provided in addition to the source package.
