February 1, 2021  Shoko Version 4.1.0 Released
Anime: Amagi Brilliant Park

Kicking off 2021 with the next release of Shoko, Shoko Version 4.1.0 is available for download!

This release focused primarily on a lot of much needed refactoring and backend changes and while not as jam packed as our normal releases tend to be. A lot of work done will help with the development of some major changes Shoko will be undergoing in 2021.

For a complete list of changes, check out the Changelog.

Renamer System Refactor

The main priority of this release was refactoring the renamer system allowing us to work towards its complete overhaul coming later this year. It’s one of our most important features, and the team has a lot of ideas for improvement and functionality to make it even better.

One of the major changes we think a lot of users will benefit from is the addition of pipelines and being able to define a renamer based on the content being imported. We have more coming down the line, though currently it’s all in the planning stage. The new renamer and plugin system has enough details to warrant a separate blog post, so a later post will be dedicated to it.

Have You Checked Out Shoko Docs?

If you missed our last blog post, we launched an updated and refreshed version of Shoko Docs pretty much rewritten from scratch as a lot of the information had become outdated. As Shoko continues to grow, we’ll continue to work and improve it and hope to see more community updates as time goes on.

More On The Way

As previously mentioned, we’ll be discussing what’s in store for Shoko and our plans for 2021. This blog post is turning out to be one of the longer ones we’ve written so look forward to a lot of information soon.

However, I will leave you with a hint, we’ve got a new plugin coming soon.
