Now Available: ComicBase v21.0.2 (Build 1875)

Customers with current subscriptions can download it directly from the Registrations page.

To Update: Just download and run the ComicBase Setup program again. The new setup will automatically update you to the current version--this will not affect your data.

Changes from v21.0.1 (Build 1151)

  • Actual weights now default to the estimated weight when new records are created
  • Rewrote numerous routines to switch from ADO to ASP.Net data access
  • Currencies used by multiple countries (e.g. EUR, USD) are no longer duplicated when quick changing in the destination currency selection list
  • Magazine and Book covers are now downloaded properly as part of the automatic cover download
  • "Find on Atomic Avenue" now works properly for book and magazine titles.
  • Changes to both ComicBase and Sidekick to support new mobile app and Atomic Avenue features.
  • When printing price or ID labels, labels are now printed in the order selected. Items added via "Add by Barcode" are also now listed (and can be later printed) in the order they were originally added/scanned, speeding up the process of labelling items.
  • All web calls and file reads are now in UTF-8 (Unicode) vs. the older Windows-1252 used by older versions of ComicBase. The net effect is that functions like "Find on Atomic Avenue" now work properly when searching for titles with foreign characters in them (while simultaneously breaking ComicBase 2017 and prior versions' access since they expect to use the older calls; users of those versions should upgrade)
  • Increased the width of the UpdateSummary form to account for longer numbers, foreign currency indicators (e.g. 123 456.78 CHF)
  • Collection Value Over Time now uses fail-proof methods for setting minimum/maximum dates, which will work even if invalid data is returned
  • You can now change the currency of your collection, if the collection currency is different than your current Windows currency setting.
  • If your Windows currency differs from the database currency, you are now prompted (once) as to whether you want to convert the prices and values to the native currency
  • Fixed a problem where the default names of Title Check fields were incorrect.
