1.0.1 released

The biggest fear of any developer: a horrendous bug that would
prevent the program from running if the user have never installed
Quivi (so it worked for me!). Sorry! Fixed.

0.6 released

This is a bug fix release. The next release will probably be a entire new rewritten version that I'm working on. It'll keep (most of) the current features and will be portable (will work on Linux!).


Fixed: program would crash when opening when a non-accessible directory
was in the favorites or history list.
Fixed: Files with a "~" in the path would not open when opened by file
association (e.g., opening images inside 7-zip)
Added: German translation. Thanks to CracKPod and Sebastian Beschke.

The version 0.4 of Quivi - a quick image viewer and manga / comic reader - has been released.

This version adds support for password protected zip/rar's, as well for zip/rar's inside zip/rar's.

Some unusual file numberings are now sorted in the correct order - e.g., what would be sorted before as 1.jpg, 10.jpg, 11.jpg, 2.jpg, 3.jpg is now sorted correctly.

Finally, some bug fixes that prevents crashing when opening corrupt RAR files and when fast switching.... read more
