What's New in This Release:В· This is a complete redesign. The database structure has ben changed, so the first-run is also a transition process which can take a while. E.G for 170 volumes it took me around 10 minutes.
В· GamCat has now a clean code, with clean database construction, so it became much faster. It is 99.99% compatible with earlier releases. Rare losses can occur only with some thumbnails, and during the file copy process. This is because the previous versions weren't correctly designed.
В· File copy for Virtual Compilation is fixed after nearly two years of bugs.
В· The manuals are now included into the packages. Some features, especially the MP3 playback may not work on all platforms. The packages are created on Kubuntu 11.10.
В· As a new feature, you can scan a FTP server's /public_home folder too.
В· WhereIsIt import is stable and tested.
В· CdCat import uses the relatively stable version 1.2
В· ADC import replaced with Gwhere.
В· Practically everything is new. You can even add skins to GamCat on the Settings tab.
