  1. Nice update.
    Great to see all those improvements.
    Thanks for all that work.

    – The zoom is great now. You could improve it maybe by blurring a little bit the image since zooming shows more imperfections.

    – The cache for the manga does work, but the caching of the thumbnails in the manga online explorer doesn’t seem to work…

    But anyway this is great work and I thank you for all your efforts.

  2. The manga thumbnails do load from the cache, but the progress on the UI is slow because the Image URLs are obtained from OneManga, and not from a cached location. For each thumbnail, the corresponding web page is downloaded and the source is looked at to find the url.
    I am hoping to improve this in the next release.

    Regarding the blurring of images, I will investigate how this can improve the visual quality and how this affects performance, and maybe include an option to enable and disable it.

    Thanks for the feedback.

  3. Thanks for sharing the details. I found the info really helpful.
