Interim Builds

These are interim builds so that we can address issues and make changes as rapidly as possible. We'll be periodically rolling them into regular "point releases" (e.g. 21.0.2). Expect this page to change frequently as we make changes, but don't feel obliged to download the new versions unless you see something of particular interest.

Changes from v21.0.2 (Build 1165)

  • Radically faster barcode searching (e.g. Add by Barcode), thanks to some new index optimizations. The first time you run this update, your database indexes will be updated to the new system
  • Doing a File > File Tools > Rebuild Lists / Item Information now performs a notes clean-up which tries its best to standardize various formatting issues (e.g. "1:Spider-Man" becomes "1st appearance of Spider-Man"; "Reg Buscema cover" becomes "Regular Buscema cover" etc. It also does its best to remove redundant notes. It also now validates the date fields in the associated title tables. This can help if you've had any trouble having your database information appear in ComicBase Mobile.
  • Tightened up the Print and Custom Fields setup dialogs to them friendlier to folks with short (small laptop) screens
  • Fixed a problem searching for titles containing a "%" sign
  • Fixed an issue which might cause the database to be unable to determine the current ratio of your local currency's value to the US Dollar, when running the database in non-USD currency on a foreign system. As a result of this fix, this version does a reset of pricing flags for non-USD databases the first time this version is launched, which will force the database to recheck each item's value the next time an update is downloaded, in case some price changes weren't properly reflected in the local currency before.
