Hi,
How common are cb7 files? Do you think this would be valuable upstream? (Merge it with the default kde thumbnailer)

I'm planning to improve the thumbnailers in KF5 and we could move cb7 support in the normal comiccreator. Also if you need help porting to KF5 take a look at the kio-extras repository. I have already ported most of the thumbcreators so lot's of examples there.

It's fine if you want to keep this a personal project of course :)

Have a nice day.

Hi,
"How common are cb7 files?" - more then cba :), and also it depends of user.
This project was created because my disk was too small and I simply repack cbz and cbr to cb7.

"I'm planning to improve the thumbnailers in KF5 and we could move cb7 support in the normal comiccreator." - it is very desirable.

"Also if you need help porting to KF5 take a look at the kio-extras repository ... of course :)"
I take a look and seems that 7z is finally integrated with KArchive (K7Zip) so adding should be very easy - http://pastebin.com/XSLjeJXh.

Sorry for English.
