Evening all,

As promised I have uploaded the latest ZXDB update. Thanks to @Einar Saukas, @R-Tape and all those other users who made this possible.

You will know that we don't actively request donations, but can I also thank the user who has donated monthly since the site started, and the two other users who have made one off contributions to the site. These donations really help towards the costs of running the site (hosting, backups and domain registration) and are much appreciated.

Hi, thank you for the report. It looks like text files have the right icon but I being referred to as Tape Image files. We will take a look. I don't believe this is linked to the latest update.

Yes it is!

This error will be fixed in the next ZXDB update. Sorry!

Nice one fellas. I'd like to doubly thank MykeP for his graft on CGC 2014. A lot of screenshots, files and corrections* there.

By the way, Boum is doubly screwy - it's listed as being part of a compilation with Retrosouls' Sector.

*some of which will follow next time.

Yeah, just noticed that.
And BTW, I don't think the Vector Graphics corrections are implemented on this update.

We are testing the moving of some files on the site. If you come across any 'file not found' type errors please could you let us know here? Thanks very much.

I'm off out now to enjoy the last of the British summer ( although apparently it's officially autumn).
