Version 4.12.1

During 2017, our content managers worked for months to enhance our Core online movie database with movie list information for thousands of multi-movie box sets.

As of today, CLZ Movies can use this new Core data: Just use the enhanced Add Movies screen to find a box set, either by title or by barcode, and our Core "knows" which movies are in the box.

* New: Find and add box sets by barcode
Scan a box-set barcode and Core will show you which movies it contains. Click Add to Collection at the bottom right and all contained movies will be added to your database, automatically linked by a box set entry.

* New: Find and add box sets by title
Alternatively, use the Title tab and enable the new Box Set search to find box sets by their title.

Note: the new Movies, TV Series and Box Sets switches now let you search each of these three Core section separately OR combined. AND: The check boxes now also operate on the Search-As-You-Type suggestions, for even quicker searching and adding!

* New box set panel on movie details page, with movie list!
A nice new box set panel at the top of the movie details for each of the contained movies. Now showing the list of the contained movies, in the correct order, AND with clickable links to go straight to the other movies in the set!

* Change the order of movies in a box set
At the bottom of the list of movies you will find a link to "change order of movies…" to modify the order in which the movies are displayed in the details page.
