Hello there :)
i've just moved Peruse to KDEReview. It is a comic book reader app and an
accompanying creation tool, both based on Kirigami, and targeted both for
desktops and mobile (hence the many email lists you may find this email on).
The current website is at https://peruse.kde.org/ and as you can see, there
have in fact been releases made of this, though they are some time ago and
based on Kirigami 1, which also has been causing some headaches for Neon,
whose maintainers have been requesting that i get a new release out (which of
course then requires that we actually sort out the current playground nature
of the project).
It should be noted that Peruse, when used as a generic viewer, uses the
Okular qtquick components, which we discovered recently are not packaged by
some distributions. It should be detected at runtime and Peruse ought to tell
you as much.
If you haven't got any comics to hand, do check out the store integration,
where you might grab in particular Pepper & Carrot Volume 1, which also will
show you some of the fancier features of the reader (such as frame-by-frame
navigation, originally implemented by Wolthera).
Look forward to seeing what people have to say about all this, and thank you
to Wolthera and Carl who already made huge strides in improving the project
over the years!
