ChangeLog - MComix 0.92

MComix 0.92 has been released. In addition to a few minor bug fixes, this version also includes limited archive password support, updated Japanese and French translations, as well as user interface improvements in several dialogs.

Full list of changes since version 0.91:

- Fixed a bug that made MComix save preview thumbnails to disk
even if this behaviour was disabled in the preferences window.

- Fixed a bug in the the archive editor that prevented it from actually
saving the modified archive on Win32.

- Added limited support for password-protected ZIP and RAR archives.
For ZIP archives, Python >= 2.6 is required. For RAR archives,
only extraction with libunrar/unrar.dll is supported.

- Added a combobox to the library dialog to enable sorting of books
based on file name, full path, or file size.

- If a library collection has sub-collections, the books from these
sub-collections will be shown as well when the collection is opened.

- The "Bookmarks" menu can be accessed via the normal menu bar again.
"Clear bookmarks" has been removed in favour of using the "Edit
bookmarks" dialog.

- Several usability improvements were done to the Enhance, Edit and
Library dialogs.

- If applications for extracting RAR or 7Z archives aren't found on
start-up, MComix will no longer allow selecting the corresponding file
types in the "Open" dialog.

clipboard, in addition to the currently opened page as bitmap.

- The currently opened file or archive can now be deleted using
File -> Delete, or by pressing F8.

- Added an option to use the first page of an archive as application
icon instead of the standard MComix icon. (inspired by Alexandr

-b, -w, -h Fit best/width/height, respectively.
