ChangeLog - MComix 0.95

This release fixes two critical issues that slipped into the library code last release. Only large libraries were hit, so I hope that most people were not affected.

In addition to other changes, MComix now supports reading archives from within other archives, thanks to patches by David Pineau.

All changes:

- mcomix/ has been moved out of the mcomix package into
the root directory of the mcomix distribution.

Note for packagers: Please do not directly symlink a file in /usr/bin to
mcomix/! Use the wrapper generated by ' install' instead,
or a script similar to

- Fixed library freezing up when displaying large amounts of books.
In addition, changes to cover size and sort order weren't kept
across program restarts.

- Fixed "Copy to clipboard" doing nothing on Win32.

- Fixed freezing on password-protected 7zip archives. Please not that such
files currently aren't supported and will always appear empty in MComix.

- The All-in-one package on Win32 should now use the native Windows theme.

- Fix MComix crashing on startup when opening a file in a directory
that contains names Python cannot directly convert to Unicode strings.

- Selecting "Japanese" from the language dropdown box in the preferences
dialog reverted the language to English.

- Added support for reading archives in archives.

- Reduced minumum slideshow scrolling delay. With small values here and in
scrolling distance (e.g. 0.05s, 1px), MComix can simulate "smooth"

- The "Dynamic background color" option now uses a color that should be
closer to a page's actual edge color.

- Removed preference options for 'Use double page mode by default' and
'Use manga mode by default'. The last used settings will be remembered

- The OSD is now used more frequently for displaying error messages that
would only appear in the status bar or in the console before.
In addition, the OSD can now be triggered with mouse button 4, as well
as with the TAB key.

- Updated French translation. (by Frédéric Chateaux)
