    Coming up: CLZ FineDiner – keep track of your restaurant visits. Recent Cobalt updates for Mac and Windows. Upcoming Cobalt updates for Mac and Windows. Saturday morning while my wife Sytske is handling your support questions, I (Alwin) am writing this March 2014 edition of the Collectorz.com newsletter. We have released important updates for two Windows Cobalt versions this month. Next to that we’re doing lots of “behind the scenes” work for upcoming new releases. Let’s look at both: This month’s releases:.

    Comic Collector Cobalt.4 for Windows – new Quick Fill screen when adding comics. Book Collector Cobalt.4 for Windows – now recognizes 23 million ISBNs Coming up:. Book Collector Cobalt.3 for Mac – ebook cataloging and more. Music Collector Cobalt.4 for Windows – improved support for vinyl. CLZ Movies 2.0 for Android – add/edit/scan – first screen shots.

    Flexible user defined fields system for all platforms (inc. CLZ Cloud) Comic Collector Cobalt.4 for Windows – new Quick Fill screen when adding comics In this Cobalt.4.1 update, we introduced many improvements to the Add Comics Automatically screen, plus we made the Update Automatically feature fully configurable!. Add Comics Automatically: New Cobalt Compact template for Preview panel. Add Comics Automatically: New Quick Fill popup, that lets you set ALL Collection Status values (including On Order and For Sale), plus several extra fields, while adding comics. Add Comics Automatically: Screen now opens and closes faster.

    Fully configurable Update Comics Automatically feature. Book Collector Cobalt.4 for Windows – now recognizes 23 million ISBNs The Cobalt.4.1 update brought two improvements to your Add Books Automatically screen: better results for ISBN searches and a new look for the Preview Panel. Add Books Automatically: Now recognizes 23 million ISBNs! A new, secondary ISBN lookup data source has been added to our online book database, which includes 13 million new ISBNs, plus extra data for 5 million books in our existing database.

    This brings the total number of ISBNs recognized by our own database to 23 million!. Add Books Automatically: New Cobalt Compact template for Preview panel CLZ Movies 2.0 for Android – add/edit/scan – first screen shots As you probably know, we are currently working our way, step-by-step, toward fully stand-alone 2.0 apps for Android, with adding/editing features, barcode scanning, 2-way cloud-syncing and a tablet-optimized layout. While doing this, we’re focusing on completing CLZ Movies first (as it is the most popular app), doing the other 4 apps after that. In, a complete rewrite of the app, we have already introduced a new look, a native Android user-interface, an optimized layout for phone, phablets and tablet and a new details template. In the meantime, we have almost finished CLZ Movies 2.0 for Android, which will bring adding/editing features, barcode scanning and 2-way syncing through the CLZ Cloud.

    The ETA for CLZ Movies 2.0 is end of April 2014. Book Collector Cobalt.3 for Mac – ebook cataloging and more This is Patrick’s main project at the moment: adding automatic e-book cataloging features to the Mac edition of Book Collector. Automatically scan your computer for e-book files, and easily add them to your database, using meta data for the e-book files. This new version will also get the re-designed Preview template for the Add Books Automatically screen, plus the new ISBN lookup data source that adds 13 million recognized ISBNs. ETA: 2 or 3 weeks Music Collector Cobalt.4 for Windows – improved support for vinyl The Cobalt.4 version will add more vinyl-specific fields, PLUS (if all goes well) the ability to add vinyl records by searching Discogs.com by Catalog Number. This has been an on-going project for Robbert and Ronald for quite a while.

    We would have liked to release this much earlier, but the guys from Discogs are let me put this nicely not exactly cooperative: Discogs has recently introduced restrictions on image downloads and the usage of their API, just at the moment we started implementing our new search system. And this has caused numerous issues, which we have been trying to resolve since mid-January.

    We hope to have everything working soon, but it’s still hard to put any reliable ETA on this. In the meantime, Robbert and Ronald will just continue on another ambitious project: Flexible user defined fields system for all platforms (inc.

    CLZ Cloud) This is a huge and ambitious project we expect to be working on for a long time to come: creating a new, completely flexible, user defined fields system for all editions (Win, Mac, iOS, Android and Connect), that will seamlessly sync through the CLZ Cloud. We will be implementing this platform by platform, starting with the Windows editions, then the CLZ Cloud / Connect, moving on to the other platforms after that. A costly and time-consuming endeavour, but we think this will take the flexibility of our cataloging solutions to a new level. And now Sytske and I are going to enjoy a sunny weekend 🙂 Talk to you next month (or earlier if you’re on Facebook, Twitter or Google+), Alwin Hoogerdijk. It’s a short month, so here I (Alwin) am already, with the Feb ’14 edition of the CLZ Newsletter.

    Today’s newsletter will focus on one of our customers, Michael Thomasson, who has attained the official Guiness World Record for “Largest Video Game Collection”! But first, let me give you a super-compact overview of what the CLZ Team is working on at the moment:.

    Robbert and Ronald: Updates for all Windows editions, with a new Cobalt Compact template for Add Auto, plus other program-specific new features. Their Movie Collector update is already live, more info below. Pim and AJ: CLZ Movies 2.0 for Android. Add Movies screen is finished (inc barcode scanning!), working on Edit screen and two-way CLZ Cloud syncing now. Patrick: Big update of Book Collector for Mac, with automatic e-book cataloging features and the new Cobalt Compact templates for Add Auto.

    Robbert and Dion: a complete redesign of Connect, with a more modern look that automatically adapts to desktop, tablet and phone screens. Rowdy and Martin: Quality checking all movie and edition cover images in our online, replacing all small and low-quality images with better ones. Chris: A complete rewrite of all manuals of our Windows and Mac editions, using our own. Okay, on to the biggest video game collection in the world. This is CLZ Alwin, with the last CLZ newsletter for 2013! I can happily report that 2013 was a great year for Collectorz.com, the highlight being the success of the new Cobalt versions and our new Update Plan system. What makes us even happier is that just this morning, we have sold the 15,000th Update Plan!

    If we include the 16,000 users who received a free Cobalt license (because of a recent purchase), plus all new customers since the Cobalt release, this brings the total number of Cobalt users to 37,886! HOWEVER: we are still receiving a lot of questions about Cobalt and the Update Plans.

    So in this newsletter I’d like to try and answer the 5 most common questions. In other news I’ll cover recent Cobalt updates, upcoming Cobalt updates and what’s coming up on mobile and online.

    This is Alwin, with your Collectorz.com News for November 2013. At the CLZ HQ, the Cobalt craziness is slowly quieting down. Our Support guys and gal (Chris, AJ and Sytske) have everything under control again. On the development side, the advantages of the Update Plan system are already showing, with this month’s Cobalt.1 updates bringing a nice set of improvements for all PC & Mac programs and our new weekly “ Maintenance Monday” resulting in faster fixes for reported problems (more details in the 1st topic of this newsletter). I have three news topics today:. About Cobalt and Update Plans (over 13,000 users have gone Cobalt!).

    3 days left in our Black Friday Sale: Get an extra Collectorz.com program half price!. CLZ Movies 1.5 for Android is live! Hi all, Alwin of Collectorz.com again 🙂 This time with the Collectorz.com newsletter for October 2013, the craziest month in Collectorz.com history! What a ride it was (and still is!). The past 2 months the CLZ team has been working on nine (!!) new Cobalt versions for our Windows and Mac editions and at the same time preparing our software and server-side code for the completely new Update Plan system. But I am proud to say that we made it! In the past 4 days, all nine Cobalt versions and the Update Plan system went live and it’s all working great 🙂 In the meantime, over 5,800 (!!) users have already updated to Cobalt, most of them opting to pay for their Update Plan with the new automatic monthly payments, others choosing to Pre-Pay for a year.

    Thank you all! Alwin here, with your CLZ News for September 2013. When I start writing these newsletters, I always scroll down the timeline of our, just to remind me of everything that happened in the past month.

    This time however, it looked like we were just a mobile app developer, as I only found posts about iOS and Android. Of course, our mobile apps are a big part of Collectorz.com, especially now with the recent iOS 7 release and our big Android project.

    But it certainly isn’t the only thing we’re working on! This is CLZ Alwin here, with your monthly dose of Collectorz.com news.

    This month we released a major upgrade of “the one that started it all”. The program that I started on myself, in my spare time, back in 1996 (yes, that’s over 17 years ago!). Of course, the program I am talking about here is Music Collector for Windows. In the meantime, our lead Windows developer Ronald has taken over the programming duties on Music Collector, but still, I am very proud that my baby has just reached version 11! July 31, so just in time for the July 2013 edition of the CLZ Newsletter. It’s the summer holiday season, so most of the CLZ crew is either currently on vacation, just returned from vacation or just leaving for vacation.
