How many times has this happened to you: no sooner are the holidays over than one of your friends begs you to let him borrow the brand new DVD set you just got -- and the next thing you know, it's Labor Day, and your so-called friend swears he wasn't the one who borrowed it? What you need is a collection manager like GCstar so that you don't lose track of your valuables.
The free software collection manager just made its stable 1.0 release, and it can handle multiple types of collections (including user-defined), import and export a variety of data formats, and help you keep on top of who's borrowing what.
GCstar depends on GTK and Perl; packages are available for a wide range of Linux distributions as well as Windows, and instructions are available for installing from source on both Linux and Mac OS X.
