Features coming soon!

January 14, 16

Hi there!

It has been a while without any new releases of YACReader, but there are good news, a new version is coming soon :).

Let's take a look to some of the new features:

The grid view has been enhanced with a new slider for choosing the size of the covers, and it also includes a fully configurable background that can use the covers of your comics, now every single folder will have a unique look.

And last but not least, a headless version of the YACReaderLibrary's server (no gui). I have been testing it in a Raspberry Pi 2 with and external hard disk attached and it looks really stable, so it will be included in the next release.

July 08, 15

Good news everyone! The new versions of YACReader are ready! It has been a long wait but there are a lot of new features to discover.

YACReader 8.0 changelog:

  • Added Reading lists, including 'Favorites' and 'being read' lists
  • Tags, for whatever you want
  • New search engine, now you can filter folders and comics
  • New grid view
  • Add and delete folders

  • Drag and drop for adding new comics and folders
  • Customizable shortcuts
  • 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)

  • Added WebP image format support
  • The user has to provide its own Comic Vine API key to prevent usage limit errors from Comic Vine
  • New unarr decompression backend for Linux and Unix systems

YACReader 2.0 for iOS changelog:

  • Renewed UI, much more cleaner design
  • Improved image quality in covers(library) and pages(reading)
  • Added support for iPhone 6/6+
  • Completely new import section. Did you already tap the percentage indicator while importing?
  • Imports can be canceled, paused, resumed. They are automatically stored when the app goes to background and restored when it comes active again
  • Three new cloud services are supported, four in total: Dropbox, Google Drive, Box and One Drive
  • Support for browsing cloud services and selective import (configurable lading folder, no more YACReader folder)
  • Added full folders importing through iTunes (bye, bye to: create folder, select all, cut, paste)
  • YACReaderLibrary integration improved, the iOS version tries to connect automatically to the last server used. Added sync back reading progress to the server
  • Brosing, Importing, Reading from YACReaderLibrary is now supported using your data plan. You have to configure your router properly (port forwarding) and use your external IP to connect to the server. (beta, it is not 100% reliable)
  • PDF is supported natively, that means that you can use iTunes or cloud services for importing PDF files
  • Added support for WebP image format
  • Big covers view has been improved adding extra information (progress bar) and using all available space in portrait mode (showing more info: pages, issue number, volume and rating)
  • I have simplified the help section, I am going publish an online users' manual (it is not ready yet, but it will)

I hope you will enjoy the new version. As always, any suggestions will be welcome.

* App Store propagation to all the world wide servers could take some hours.

** backward compatibility in desktops/iOS integration is broken, so YACReader 8.0 and YACReader 2.0 for iOS have to work together.

Special thanks to Elia Gregorio for all her support and for understanding what this project means to me. I love you.

Felix(selmf), thank you very much for all your invaluable help!

I would like to thank all the users that have been involved in the development of these new versions: reporting bugs, sending me suggestions and doing all the beta testing work.
