[CLZ News] What’s cooking at CLZ?

July 30th, 2021

Here it is, the CLZ Newsletter for July 2021.
Now, this could be a very short newsletter, because we did only ONE release this month: the CLZ Games 6.4 update on July 2 (the one with the new look).
But I won’t let you get away that easily:-) Instead, I am turning today’s newsletter into a big “What’s cooking at CLZ?” overview!

Even though we did no further releases, we have not exactly been sitting on our hands this month. Big projects are underway, some preparing for big releases in August, but also some “behind the scenes” work to improve our online services.

So… here’s what’s cooking:

  • CLZ Music 6.4 for iOS and Android: lots of new fields
    support for all new cloud fields that were introduced recently (Musicians, Credits, Headers in track lists, etc..)
  • For all Windows editions: new “Transfer Field Data” tool
    an advanced tool for batch copying data from from one field to another.
  • Submit to Core site re-write
    a new design and fully mobile ready!
  • Moving to a new server infrastructure
    full scalable, more secure and more cost-effective
  • Better ISBN coverage for some European countries
    implementing new data sources for European ISBNs.

Here’s CLZ Alwin, with your CLZ News for January 2021.
I hope you are all staying safe. In the Netherlands, we just went into a stricter lockdown, including a curfew, meaning we can’t go outside between 9PM and 5AM. So it looks like we will have to remain in our work-from-home situation for quite a while 🙁

Still, we are now fully set up to work like this, so there’s absolutely no delays here, not in customer support, not in development, not in content management. Here’s what’s new and what’s cooking:

  • Windows: New “Pre-fill” screens for Movie, Book, Music and Game Collector
  • CLZ Comics: Missing Comics tool
  • Connect: Currency selector and Currency Display settings
  • Coming up: Audience Ratings from IMDb, for all movie tools
  • Coming up: mobile-friendly Submit to Core site
