This week I’ve managed to take care of quite a few bug reports and minor feature requests, and I’m pretty happy about that. It’s been slow lately, but things are getting back up to speed. I hope to carry on with this momentum. Tomorrow I’m going to focus on replying to all the emails I haven’t gotten to yet.
If you’ve been having trouble with bato.to lately, I recommend updating to Release 220. I rewrote the code for handling Batoto downloads so it should now be twice as fast and far more reliable. Some users have been experiencing issues with the default image server that Batoto uses– If you’re one of these people, try selecting a different image server under “Settings > Downloads > Site-Specific Settings > bato.to”, and it could help.
Speaking of help, at the beginning of the week I mentioned thinking about adding some sort of public issue tracker. I’ve decided to do that in the form of a discussion form, which is now available at: https://doujindownloader.com/forum/
Please check it out! There’s not much to see right now, but I hope for it to grow into something like living help documentation.
The goal is to get people asking questions over there instead of through comments here. That way it acts as an easy-to-navigate, searchable archive of all of the questions people have asked, which makes it easier for people to find the answers the need, while also making things easier for me, since I don’t have to keep answering similar questions all the time. It will be checked just as often as the comments left over here.
There’s a “How-to Guides” section, which I’ll populate over time with detailed guides explaining how to accomplish various things things with HDoujin. There are a lot of features that really aren’t well-documented, so not many people (aside from those that requested them) know about them– I hope to change that.
Improvements will continue to be rolled out throughout the week!
