#158 Archive support with 7-Zip plugins


7-Zip is an open-source and very popular archive reader. CDisplayEx is a comic reader listed in SourceForge, with active releases but without any source files uploaded SF. It can support a variety of archives using 7-Zip plugins. I would like to suggest that the open-source 7-Zip project be taken advantage of in the development of Comix.

I'm currently using Windows and moving to Ubuntu soon, and it'd be fantastic to have a comic reader that can support the variety of archives out htere.

    For best compatibility I strongly recommend you use ZIP/CBZ archive format.

    The developer of Comix has not been active since 2009 so new features are not likely to be added officially.

    If you are a programmer there are special custom versions of Comix (see the Patches section in the tracker for Comix on Sourceforge) that have added 7-zip support.

    You might also want to take a look at QComicBook.
    I know QComicBook is included in Ubuntu (although I'm not sure they have added the most up to date version which includes 7-zip support)
