Delicious Library 3.2.1 – Import, browse and share your media.

Delicious LibraryDelicious Library allows you to import, browse, and share all your books, movies, music, and video games with Delicious Library.
Run your very own library from your home or office using our impossibly simple interface. Delicious Library’s digital shelves act as a visual card-catalog.

A scan of a barcode is all Delicious Library needs to add an item to your digital shelves, downloading tons of info from the Internet like the author, release date, current value, description, and even a high-resolution picture of the cover. Import your entire library using our exclusive full-speed iSight video barcode scanner, our Flic Wireless Laser Bar Code Scanner, or (the slow way) entering the titles by hand. Once you have all of your items in your Mac, you can browse though your digital shelves, check stuff out to friends using Apple’s built-in Address Book and calendar, and find new items to read, watch, and play using Library’s recommendations.

Quickly importing your stuff into Delicious Library doesn’t require a dedicated barcode scanner – you can use any QuickTime-supported digital video camera, like your Apple iSight. Just hold the barcode on the back of any book, movie, CD, or video game in front of the camera and your item magically shows up on your digital shelf seconds later. Using the same technology found in $800 industrial-strength CCD barcode scanners, Delicious Library reads every single frame of digital video; seeking out, targeting, and instantly decoding any visible barcodes. This results in a seamless process of scanning that lets you import about 750 items an hour (assuming you can move your arms that fast). At that rate the staff of the new downtown Seattle Central Library could work together to import all of their 1.4 million books into Delicious Library in just over 5 hours.

What’s New

Version 3.2.1:
New feature: custom fields!

  • The items in your library already have many pieces of information stored with them: title, author, and genre are just a few. Now, you can add your own customized fields to your library.
  • Define custom fields for your library by selecting “Edit Custom Fields…” under the “Item” menu.
  • Custom fields are visible and editable in the details popover and window when you inspect an item.
  • Custom fields can be shown in list mode for editing, viewing, and sorting.
  • Custom fields autocomplete with values you've used before in those fields, just like the built-in fields.
  • Export, Search, and Saved Sorts all support custom fields.
Added code to automatically skip more database corruption failures when importing v2 collections, which allowed us to "fix" some corrupted version 2 libraries just by importing them (depending on how extensively corrupted they are).
  • We now show a summary of cover images lost due to corruption.
  • Amazon Germany has suddenly started returning a different type for Blu-ray DVDs, so we now understand this natively.
  • Fixed bug where items weren’t resizing if they didn’t have cover images.
  • The "Purchase Date" field acted strangely before, now it's easier to edit and sort on.
  • Removed lightbox on modal sheets, since it was barely visible and causing a bug with the sheet closing animation.
  • Fixed undo string bug when changing empty Smart Shelves.
  • Fixed bug where the localized title for sort descriptors was nil when there were no sort descriptors.
  • Fixed occasional crasher / craziness after deleting shelves.
  • Fixed "Friends" shelf disclosure triangle toggled-wrong bug (due to different behavior in 10.9 and 10.8).
  • Added alerts when upgrading database, which send bug reports if the upgrade fails.
  • Now, when a friend’s library is added, the disclosure arrow shows up only if the friend’s library has shelves.
  • Added "Show Raw Cover Art" to context menus.
  • Version 3.2.1 fixes a bug in 3.2 where users couldn't edit some fields.
