I’m going to squash together some updates into one post.
In case anyone else wants to beta-test the new version of the CAA Dimensions script, follow the link in @chaban’s post above and feel free to report any bugs here or in the GitHub pull request. It’s pretty much been rewritten from scratch, so bugs are definitely possible, but we’ve tested it quite extensively so far and it seems to be quite stable at this point. We’ve definitely missed some edge cases though
For those that don’t want to beta-test it: Don’t worry, it should release soon, and normally you’ll be auto-updated to the new version within a couple of days of that happening.
Caveat about automatic updates of the beta version
The beta version will not auto-update to new beta versions and your userscript add-on will probably complain that the script is 404 when checking for updates. That’s normal. Unfortunately you’ll have to manually reinstall if you want to catch up with the latest changes in the beta. The link will remain the same, but I might not always remember to actually synchronise it with the latest changes, so ping either me or @kellnerd to update the preview version if necessary.
The beta version will update to the stable version once it’s released.
In other news, you might have been spammed by a pesky update notification in the Enhanced Cover Art Uploads script that just didn’t want to go away yesterday. A hotfix should be out, apologies about that! Next time you’ll see it, it’ll say something useful, promised!
We’ve got changelogs now! Could be useful if you want a detailed digest of what’s been happening to the scripts. The most important stuff will be covered by the update notifications though.
Only works for Enhanced Cover Art Uploads at the moment, and soon also for CAA Dimensions. The other scripts will be added later.
Question for anyone that uses Enhanced Cover Art Uploads and also uploads homemade cover art scans: Do you use any file naming patterns for your scans? Like
cover_front.jpg for front covers? I’ve been thinking of auto-filling types based on file names of uploaded files, either in ECAU or in a new script, so feel free to share your file name patterns!
Thanks for beta testing the new CAA Dimensions rewrite and for the continued bug reports @chaban! I’ll transfer the issues to the GitHub repo.
About the second issue: Can you clarify what you mean by “no file info was shown”?
- Nothing was shown at all (neither dimensions nor file size)? If so, is it possible that you had another tab open that was still running the old version of the script? Then it’s probably the bug described at the bottom of this comment.
- Dimensions were shown, but no file size?
- Dimensions were shown, but file size and type were something like
undefined (NaN)? (This shouldn’t happen any longer, but was an issue in earlier previews.)
