For the past 3 months, I have been working tirelessly to rebuild our main scan loop, which is not only the most complicated part of Kavita but also the most critical. It translates files on your system into the series, volumes, and chapters...
v0.5.5 - Performance Part 1
Published on August 17, 2022 by Joseph Milazzo

Published on August 8, 2022 by Joseph Milazzo
This is a security hotfix, please update immediately! Several high severity issues were disclosed to the Kavita team this morning that require an immediate hotfix. Thanks vultza for disclosing these issues through...
This is a hell of an update, so big I could barely figure out what features to put in the header. There were so many great additions that were not planned for this release, like the new PDF reader. Welcome to v0.5.4, this release is the par...
v0.5.3 is here and packed full of a collection of random features I wanted to build out for Kavita. I usually plan out the next few releases and stick to that schedule, adding in features that I want or users suggest randomly, but this time...
It has come to my attention that PDF rendering broke on 32-bit Pis due to a downstream dependency and a .net regression. The downstream library has put a workaround and we have confirmed it works in this. Sorry for the inconvenience. This w...
There were some unfortunate issues that slipped through release testing, so please update. The main focus for this hotfix is around SortName on series, which was getting cleared during a scan and not repopulated, thus breaking the sorting l...
This was another huge release. I knew it was going to be big going in, I didn't expect that I'd had to split some of the features out into a separate release. This release is themed around UX enhancements and as you can see, we added custom...
v0.5.1.1 - Email Migration Hotfix
Published on February 12, 2022 by Joseph Milazzo

Another jam packed update is here and it lays out some important foundational work for future updates. The focus of this update was account management and search overhaul. Both are functions that were built out very early in the project and...
It's been some time since our last release, so much so that I almost forget what v0.4 was all about. v0.5 is finally here and is the largest release so far with 32 features, 31 changes, 36 bugfixes delivered. Thank you for waiting and witho...

It's been 1 year since I started on this idea of building an alternative reader to Ubooquity with the goal of being the Plex of the reading world. I wouldn't be able to believe the amount of progress that I would make nor the direction shif...
I started this release with the intention of it being small and targeted to rewrite search and make it more expansive, however half way through I realized, I really need the metadata code from the v0.5 release before I can implement my plan...
v0.4.7 - Comic Rework
Published on October 12, 2021 by Joseph Milazzo
v0.4.7 is here with a large rework on how Kavita handles comics. Working with our community and some heavy comic rack users, we went to work building out the most common naming conventions. From testing for release, nearly all comics out of...
v0.4.4 is here and is a mixed bag of new features, fixes, and polishing changes. A lot has happened during this release, it's hard to get started. Up first is Bookmarks, a feature I've been wanting to build out for a few months now. Bookmar...
v0.4.3 is out and it's action packed. What was supposed to be a small update for the dev team to get our build system in order turned out to deliver some huge wins for Ka...
