Download Monitor

Hi guys, can you explain how to monitor chapter downloads? If this is not a supported feature can you consider adding a tab for this in the future with the ability to prioritize / organize downloads?

At the moment v3 does not have a queue view like v2, this is due to how the new download manager works. It is possible to add one, but at the moment I'm not sure how I want to handle the view and the events. Based on how the backend handle the download queue I don't think there is a nice, simple, and robust way to handle changing download prioritization. At the moment what happens is each download is a task by itself. The Manga download tasks spawn Image download tasks for the covers, and the Chapter download tasks spawn Page download tasks which in-turn each spawn a Image download task. The number of concurrent tasks run is limited to the computer processor count multiplied by 2. The task threads also have a thread priority of BelowNormal.
