Hello, I am the developer of Kavita. Would you mind updating the version of Kavita you are hosting? The version is so out of date. So many new features and fixes have been added. We are now on v0.4.9. v0.5.0 is coming up quickly offering full metadata support.

If you no longer want to maintain the image, please reach out and my team can take over ownership and maintenance of the image.

Bonjour Stéphane, j'espère que tout va bien et que tu auras un peu de temps pour partager la nouvelle version de Kavita.
Je vois que le dev lead a eu la même requête que moi... dans mon cas c'est pour l'utiliser !

Merci par avance et bon courage

PS : j'espère d'ailleurs que la nouvelle version que Kavita a livrée 0.5.1 utilisera moins de ressources (memoire en particulier) que la version que tu as partagée 0.4.2

N'ayant plus vu de MaJ de longue date de la part de Qoolbox (qui, je l'espère va bien), je suis passé sur la version docker qui fonctionne parfaitement. Une version latest et nightly existe.

v0.5.3 - Book Reader Enhancements, Related Series, and More!

v0.5.3 is here and packed full of a collection of random features I wanted to build out for Kavita. I usually plan out the next few releases and stick to that schedule, adding in features that I want or users suggest randomly, but this time I wanted to sit down and take a release for myself to work on whatever I felt like, rather than what I had planned and it turned out to be really fun and some great additions came from it.
Let's start with what the discord community is abuzz about and that's the fated book reader refresh. Started last release but pushed due to complexity was a big refresh to the UX around the book reader and bringing one of our most up-voted feature request, calibre-like reading. Not only did we bring this reading mode to Kavita's reader, we also brought along new color themes for the reader for our OLED users, a font for Dyslexic users, and immersive mode, which hides the menuing system and lets you focus just on your book (goes great with column layout). It's been great iterating on the book reader since it was first built. I can't wait to see how it evolves and is polished further in later releases.
Next is my personal favorite and another coming from feature request, Series relations. Isn't it really annoying reading a series and not knowing what the next series is or what spin-offs exist? Well, now you can configure this into Kavita. From any series you can configure relationship links to other series, like sequels, prequels, spin off, side story, alternative version, etc. There are many links to choose from. You can see a little teaser of it below. Jump on our wiki to learn more about the feature.
Another killer addition is a big update to our search. You spoke and I heard you, you can now search for individual titles (book or manga/comics) and for individual files in addition to series, genres, people, tags, reading lists, libraries, collections, etc. This was tricky to implement and still retain the non-functional requirement of everything responding under 300ms. There should be no issues with you finding things in your server.
Wrapping it up is a few small but powerful ones. Likely you've seen it a few times in your logs, but the old constraint issue. I finally was able to track it down and squash it for good. It ended up being an index in the database that wasn't actually being used. Another one is the extra white space on the right side of the card grid system. Robbie was able to drive a beautiful solution and it works just as I envisioned. Lastly, On Deck was tweaked yet again to try to achieve a good balance of how I want it vs how I can actually code it and we have found a good compromise that works.
As usual, the release is packed with many things, so read through the changelog. To close off, I want to say thank you for all the support and suggestions to help shape Kavita. I have a lot of ideas that I want to see realized and really appreciate the inputs that have helped us build out Kavita.
Note: Kavita releases will slow down for a while as I have taken a new job. I am still committed to bringing my vision of Kavita to life, so don't worry about this project dying. I use Kavita daily.


  • Added: Users can now start reading from any chapter within a Reading List
  • Added: Reading lists now have Cover images like Collection tags (https://feats.kavitareader.com/posts/89/adding-cover-images-to-reading-lists)
  • Added: Added ability to filter series on a collection page
  • Added: Library detail, all series, and collection page filtering will now persist in the url. This allows you to make a filter, click a series and hit back in browser to load the screen as it was, on the same page with the same filter as previously.
  • Added: Card's progress bars will now automatically reflect a users' reading status in real time as a user is reading in real time without refreshing
  • Added: Added a new Sort by field on filtering, Last Chapter Added, to help users sort in a way that mimics On Deck
  • Added: Edit Series modal information tab will now show Last Chapter Added and Last Read Progress
  • Added: Added a link to the wiki for stat collection to help users understand exactly what we collect on the setting field
  • Added: GIF image types are now supported
  • Added: Bookmarks are now moved out of user settings and are their own page on side nav.
  • Added: Bookmarks can now be read by clicking on the series they are from, which will open the manga reader for that set of bookmarks.
  • Added: Users can now link series together via Edit Series modal. Linked series will show on Series detail page under the Related tab.
  • Added: Kavita will now read and group based on the LocalizedSeries tag within ComicInfo. This is not an official tag, but an issue is raised on Anansi Project. This tag maps to Series LocalizedName field.
  • Added: Library Detail now has 2 tabs: Library and Recommendation. Library is your library and recommendation is detailed below.
  • Added: Library Detail Recommendation tab now has actual recommendations. A first pass, we now show (for the current library only): On Deck, Quick Reads (series that are not read, not ongoing, and are under 4k pages), Highly Rated (series rated by any user on the server with more than 4 stars, sorted by average star count), Rediscover (series that you're already read), and lastly More In (more in a given genre).
  • Added: Users can now search directly for files within Kavita. Clicking on the file will open the respective series.
  • Added: Users can now search against Chapters with TitleName set. TitleName is extracted from the Title field in ComicInfo or the book name from Epubs (i.e. if you search 'Stone' and have a series of Harry Potter, 'Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone' will show up as it's the 2nd book in the series)
  • Added: Added total pages to series info modal
  • Added: When a file doesn't exist on disk but still in Kavita and the user tries to read it, throw an error and show it on the UI rather than just spin forever.
  • Added: New book reader drawer design. Drawer has been redesigned to break up settings and table of content to reduce the amount of scrolling and to provide a cleaner UX.
  • Added: Column layout (1 or 2 column) is now available in the book reader. This is a no-scroll solution which works best on e-ink readers.
  • Added: New coloring themes for the book reader. Users can now choose between Dark (existing), Light (existing), or Black (new, all black)
  • Added: Blacklist .qpkg folders and don't scan Recently-Snapshot or recycle folders.
  • Added: New OpenDyslexic font for the book reader
  • Added: You can now hide the action bar (top/bottom bar) in the book reader by using Interactive Mode. Interactive mode will automatically turn on tap to paginate and gives you a distraction free way to read. In order to show the drawer and top bar, you can tap in the document on a non-interactive element.
  • Added: Added --bulk-selection-highlight-text-color and --bulk-selection-text-color for bulk selection bar.
  • Added: Added --search-result-text-lite-color for search results accent (where library is shown)

  • Changed: When opening the side nav on mobile with metadata filter already open, collapse the filter.
  • Changed: When on mobile viewports, when clicking an item from side nav, collapse it afterwards
  • Changed: Updated vers-one/EpubReader library which will now allow for reading epubs with bad table of contents (missing items), something that a lot of users complained about.
  • Changed: When an epub doesn't have a dc:date set with publication event type, default to the dc:date tag for publication date.
  • Changed: Updated ComicInfo MA15+ to MA 15+ per Anansi Project (wrong info was documented originally)
  • Changed: Enhanced cover image selection such that back_cover and back-cover will no longer be selected

  • Changed: Removed a - 1 hack in progress bars on cards as there used to be an off by one progress bug in Kavita many versions back.
  • Changed: On deck now functions differently. The sorting will be based on reading progress then by last chapter added. Only series with reading progress in the past month are considered or series with some reading progress and last chapter added within the last week.

  • Changed: Docker health scan interval has been dropped from 300s to 30s.


  • Removed: Removed Light and E-ink themes form Kavita. Less than 1% of users were using light or e-ink themes and the maintenance was high. These themes are offered on our wiki to be used as a custom theme.


  • Fixed: Finally fixed On Deck so that chapters show correctly when they are added on series that are fully read. This required a migration so it will only work on new series going forward.
  • Fixed: Fixed a bug where sometimes series level metadata would pull from the wrong chapter when the first chapter starts with a float.
  • Fixed: Fixed a bug where locked people fields on a series would be reset during a scan
