Update Calibre 3.17

Een nieuwe versie van Calibre is uitgekomen. Calibre is een opensource- en crossplatform-e-bookbeheerprogramma. Het kan onder andere alle relevante informatie en kaftafbeeldingen opzoeken, en e-boeken converteren om ze geschikt te maken voor de diverse soorten e-readers. Verder kan het programma kranten, tijdschriften en nieuwsartikelen op basis van rss-feeds omzetten in e-bookformaat. Ook kunnen met Calibre boeken worden aangeschaft bij de bekende webwinkels.

 

Changelog:

New features

  • Allow splitting the book list, by right clicking on the column headers and choosing ‘Split the book list’.
    This is useful to ‘lock’ one or more columns in place so that they are always visible even when scrolling through other columns. Also, the split list has a separate right click menu which you can configure via Preferences->Toolbars and menus.
  • Store temporary files used by the editor and viewer in the cache directory to try to prevent errors caused by ‘file cleaner’ programs deleting temporary files still in use.

 

Bug fixes

  • EPUB3 Input: Fix HTML covers and titlepages that are marked using the deprecated <guide> element not being recognized. Closes tickets: 1746794.
  • Bulk metadata edit: Fix regression in 3.13 that made it impossible to use the Force numbering checkbox for custom series.
  • Conversion: Fix the valign attribute on <td> tags not being honored.
  • E-book viewer: Fix the ‘Copy’ keyboard shortcut/context menu action not working on some Windows systems. Closes tickets: 1477696.

New features

  • Content server: Allow adding and deleting of books using the web interface.
    Use the + icon in the top bar of the book list to add new books and the trash icon in the top bar of the book details page to a delete a book. Note that only authenticated users are allowed to perform these actions, so you have to setup user accounts for the server to use these features.
  • Allow removing the close button from tabs in the Virtual library tab bar. Right click the tab bar and choose ‘Lock tabs’ to do that.
  • calibredb export: Add –progress option.
  • Bulk metadata editing: Show progress bars to track progress of the operation.

  • Content server: Show a warning popup on Apple devices when the user tries to search with an expression containing smart quotes, since Apple devices now automatically replace quotes with smart quotes when typing.
