***************README***************
The waf is made to be integrated with Yifan Lu Launcher.
You need to jailbreak your Kindle and to install the launcher.
If anyone wants to work on it and make it better, just post the results here for everyone.
************************************


************NEW FEATURES*************

What's new:
- 5.1.0 firmware is fully supported
- manage bookmarks has a dropdown menu to delete single bookmarks
- welcome message is shown only once (during first time loading)
- exit button (just a proof of concept)
- titlebar is now your friend: while reading it shows current folder and page ==> no more info button! The rest of the time, it shows where you are (home, manage bookmarks)
- change image width and then choose wheather to change lenght or not
- lock and unlock image size after resize (otherwise it will reset itself every time you change page as I intended it to be used only for a few pages)
- one time rotation in portrait mode: displays the current image in landscape mode but it doesn't add the scrolldown button on the bottom of the page. Going to next/prev image reset it to portrait!
- take screenshots: they are saved to kindle's USB mount directory
- landscape mode is back: no need to change orientation before running the app, it changes by itself when landscape mode is choosen
- landscape mode is now full of dropdown menus: no more text inputs!!
- empty folders (i.e. without jpg or png) won't be displayed: you can organize your comics in subfolders
- small interface improvements
- few code improvements
- ...something else I don't remember (as usual...)
************************************


************HOW TO INSTALL************

DIFFERENTIAL UPDATE (if you installed the previous version):
- remove every file and folder in /extensions/imagegallery/bin
- unzip 1.6_differential_update.zip to /extensions/imagegallery/bin


PLAIN INSTALL:
Just unzip imagegallery folder contained in 1.6_plain_install.zip to the extensions folder.
Restart your Kindle.
You'll find "Install Image Gallery" in launcher menu.
Tap on it: it adds all the necessary to the appreg.db.
After doing it, it returns to the kindle home.
Replace /extensions/imagegallery/menu.json with /extensions/imagegallery/bin/menu.json
Create a folder called "Gallery" in documents ==> /documents/Gallery
You can now see "Image Gallery" in the launcher menu: this runs the WAF.
*************************************


************HOW TO USE**************
Just add your images in /documents/Gallery/ organized in folders and/or subfolders.
Images MUST be named from 0 (i.e: 0 1 2 3 4 5....)
They can be jpg or png.
************************************


************STILL TO DO************
- add image post processing (change contrast and lightness)
- cbz or zip support
- built-in files renamer
- bring back pinch-to-zoom
- improve "choose folder" dropdown menu as suggested by Geekmaster here
*********************************


*********RESIZE FUNCTION**********
While reading, you can resize the image.
Tapping "change image size" in reading menu displays a prompt box: insert a percentage (without % symbol) to resize the image.
N.B 20 means 20% of the original size, 120 means 120% of the original size i.e. 20% bigger.
Than, you can choose wheather to change lenght by the same percentage or not.
If you choosed to enlarge the image, you'll see 4 arrows: tapping on theme will scroll the image.
They fade after 2 seconds; to bring them back, double tap anywhere (not too fast!).
You can now lock the image size: going prev/next/jump doesn't reset the dimension.
Moreover, you can unlock the image size.
Finally, you can reset image dimension without going to next or prev image.
*********************************


EDIT: Firmwares before 5.1.0 are no longer supported as I have only one Kindle with 5.1.0!!

EDIT_2: Start.sh file should now work...Thanks to thomass and deep!
