Hi people,

the first beta for the next major release is ready for testing. The integration with iOS will not be ready until YACReader for iOS 2.0 beta will be released. Please, use the following links to download it.

For using the beta, put the YACReader-beta-8.0 folder in your desktop (windows) or the YACReader.app and YACReaderLibrary.app in a temporal folder (macosx). Warning, this version will ask you to update your libraries to 8.0 and you won't be able to load them in previous versions. Create a testing library if you don't want to do this.

UPDATE: Release candidate released. For those having issues with OpenGL in Windows there is a new version for them (ANGLE). The OpenGL version is still the recomended one. Windows XP support will be enabled in the final release.

DOWNLOADS
  • Windows (updated: RC OpenGL)
  • Windows (updated: RC ANGLE - for those with issues using OpenGL)
  • MacOSX (updated: RC)
  • Arch Linux PKGBUILD: extract and run makepkg for building a package. Use makepkg -f for updating the beta to the latest version. The package will be built from the source code in the 8.0.0 branch release (bitbucket repository).

Complete list of new features:
  • Reading lists
  • Tags
  • 'Favorites' and 'being read' lists
  • New search engine, now you can filter folders and comics
  • New grid view
  • Add and delete folders
  • Update a single folder (no need for updating the whole library to rescan a single folder)
  • Drag and drop for adding new comics and folders
  • Customizable shorcuts
  • Manga mode (thank you Felix)
  • Spread page detection for double page mode (including manga mode)(thank you again Felix :) )
  • New view for folders not containing comics (only subfolders)
  • Save selected covers to disk
  • Comics in Reading Lists and Tags can be sorted by drag&drop
  • Sublist in Reading Lists can by sorted by drag&drop
  • Added WebP image format support
  • The user has to provide its own Comic Vine API key to prevent usage limit errors from Comic Vine

Let me know if you find any issues!

Well... I have to delete my suggestions again. It seems they've all been covered with this beta version. :D

Sorry Luis, I can't test the beta. I'm using Ubuntu/Linux exclusively. I don't have a Windows installation nor do I have a Mac.
I don't know how to properly pull the 8.0 beta source from Bitbucket. Also I don't even know if I can do anything with the source if I got it. Don't know if it needs Linux specific modification before compiling.
I just have very basic knowledge of compiling and such. :(

Luis, the typeinfo bug I reported in prealpha is still present. YACReaderLibrary will not build with a current gcc without adding "#include <typeinfo>" in db/reading_list_model.[cpp|h].

@Chocwise: Ubuntu/Debian Packages of YACReader, beta or final release, won't be ready soon. YACReader 8.0 needs at least Qt 5.4 to run. Alas, this is still in the process of being packaged for Debian and Ubuntu and it will take some time till this makes it's way into the more stable flavors of these distros.


I can, however, provide a PKGBUILD for users of Archlinux and its derivates who want to try the beta version as soon as Luis commits the fix for the typeinfo bug.

There seems to be a problem with the full screen mode in YACReader. It keeps crashing/freezing (not segfaulting!) on me whenever I toggle it.

No idea what exactly is going wrong. I'll need to do some more test with a debugger.

I have used a workaround for QTBUG-41883, maybe is related to this crash....

Look for QTBUG-41883 in the source code.

Looks like it is related. I've reverted the workaround commit using hg backout and now the freeze is gone. Still behaves a little weird, but works. I guess it would be best to wrap the workaround in Q_OS macros so it doesn't wreak havoc :cheer:

Would be good to know if fullscreen mode on mac is affected by this bug.

EDIT2: It failed AGAIN. Same hanging error when changing viewing mode, then I re-deleted the AppData folder and the YACReader-beta-8.0 folder and now works but only the first time I open the Library. :(

EDIT: I re-downloaded the beta and now it works. Somehow the files AND the zipped archives got corrupted I guess. Sometimes don't you just HATE computers?


First of all I want to say thanks for this beta. :)

Recently I've been getting constant hangs every time I want to change the viewing mode (grid to list or vice versa).
I don't know what's happening, because it was working until yesterday. For good measure I deleted the AppData folder of YACReader and used a freshly decompressed beta. I've also tried running as administrator and waited in case it just took a long time to do it to no avail.

I've also emailed you the newly generated AppData folder.
