Another addition to the "Releases" section is the ability to filter per a specific light novel label or per a specific publisher.

Examples:
Dengeki Bunko for August 2014: http://lndb.info/releases?year=2014&month=8&show=label&label=Dengeki%20Bunko&target_readership=undefined&content=general
Dengeki Bunko for June 2014: http://lndb.info/releases?year=2014&month=6&show=label&label=Dengeki%20Bunko&target_readership=undefined&content=general

Be aware of a couple of things:
1) Filtering by a specific light novel label will disable the target readership input field/select box since light novel labels are targeted at either males/females or a general readership. Not disabling this field and choosing a light novel label that's aimed at a specific readership (male/female) and choosing a target readership that isn't the accurate target readership of this particular label won't show any light novel volume releases. That's the reason behind it being disabled.
2) Even when specifying a light novel label, the content field was left as is, since if an 18+ label was chosen (an adult or bl label), authentication of age is needed to show these adult/bl light novel releases. So specifying an adult or bl light novel label with a selection of "General Content" in the content field won't show any light novel volume releases.

Filtering without specifying a particular publisher or a particular label still behaves as before, and shows light novel labels/publishers sections with the light novel releases per label/publisher.

Please let me know if you run into any issue/s.

In the releases section, the target readership of "all" was changed to "----" (undefined) which better describes this option, that shows all the light novel releases without any consideration to target readership.

"Target Readership" is now also shown per light novel volume.

The following feature was added as a planned feature:
- Addition of an online/web serialization section that has the following fields: start and end dates, website name, website link, number of chapters currently released, and number of volumes.

This is necessary since some light novels are serialized online rather than being published in book/paper format, one example would be:

Two more "Show by" options were added to the releases section:

1) An "Alphabetical Order" option which shows the light novels ordered in an alphabetical order, for example:
http://lndb.info/releases?year=2014&month=12&show=alphabetical&target_readership=undefined

2) A "Release Day" option which shows the light novels ordered by release day, for example:
http://lndb.info/releases?year=2014&month=12&show=day&target_readership=undefined

Concerning previously mentioned features, they are under work...

A "show only titles" option was added in the releases section:
http://lndb.info/releases?year=2015&month=1&show=label&target_readership=undefined&only_titles=true

This will only show the light novel titles without the covers and other data. It's an unattractive option without any covers, but I added it for those that want the title list of current and previous light novel releases.
