There is a significant amount of changes in this version; it is also incomplete in many places. The Comica Wiki contains a list of known issues - please report any/all bugs you encounter that are not listed.
Extract the archive to a location of your choice - preferably not over your existing installation. Once done, ensure any previous versions of Comica aren't running (you should be notified if they are) and double-click on the Comica.exe file. All going well, it should run as normal.
Comica v1.20 has been tested in Windows XP, 7, and 8. No specific OS-issues were found. MacOS X and Linux testing will begin at a later date, assuming the Mono project is capable of running a .NET 4 application correctly (non-recoverable issues were encountered during the last series of tests).
Please use this thread for v1.20 posts.
