PyComicsViewer-0.7 has been released

What is PyComicsViewer?

Is a comics viewer written in python, PyGTK and PIL. I made it as I
didn't fully like any of the existing viewers and I wanted something
that works the same (nice) way on both Linux and Windows.

Because of the way it was implemented, you can also use it like a kind
of image browser/viewer, but this is not its primary destination.
Browsing images from uncompressed directories is provided because
resulted naturally from the implementation and because I've seen some
people that distribute their scaned comics uncompressed.

What's new in version 0.7?

This is the first public release of the viewer. 90% of the
functionality is already in place. Some things need better
implementation and some are still to be implemented. However, you
should be able to read cbr and cbz files with it.


PyComicsViewer is released under the GPL.

Where can I get it?
