Delicious Library 3.5.1

Delicious 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 3.5.1:

Built under El Capitan so it gets all the latest improvements from Apple (but still works under Yosemite).
  • Worked around El Capitan bug where the Add Friend widget was displayed cut-off inside its popover window.
Updated to use Apple's new iTunes access framework!
  • Should find iTunes collections for users who have had problems before.
  • Now displays covers for items that are stored only in the cloud.
  • Note Apple does not allow any third parties to access iBooks.
Other Updates:
  • Added a list of fields users can put into their own templates inside the App's bundle in "Contents/Resources/Templates/README - List Of Fields.txt"
  • Fixed hanging bug that could occur when displaying items without covers.
  • Fixed bug where CDs would go grey for a while when their cover was first downloaded on 'flat' shelves.
  • Fixed bug where clicking on the top part of an item wouldn't select it on 'flat' shelves.
  • Fixed bug sorting using Library of Congress numbers with multiple cuts.
  • Fixed bug sorting using Dewey Decimal numbers so 1.193 is _after_ 1.2.
  • Fixed bug when publishing to the web so we don't output "" on the first line, which confused some browsers.
  • Added another graphics card to the list of cards that can't display transparent windows without crashing, so some machines that have been experiencing crashes when displaying 3D items will work now.
