Version 0.9.16 of the Ebook reader and management software Calibre was announced on January 18, marking an important milestone for this amazing software.
If you have an e-book reader, the Calibre software is a must-have. It does so many things for the avid reader, that it would take a lot of time to just enumerate all the features.
Highlights of Calibre 0.9.16:
• The application no longer converts all downloaded images to JPG format. This fixes the problem of PNG images with transparent backgrounds being rendered with black backgrounds.
• A hierarchical table of contents is now supported. An inline table of contents is no longer generated when a metadata table of contents is present. Also, the text in the table of contents is now correctly decoded;
• The beam-ebooks.de store has been added to Calibre;
• Make custom yes/no columns using icons put text values under the icons;
• Drivers for LG E400 and SayCoolA710 have been implemented;
• The device connection has been sped when there are lots of books on the device, by not generating cover thumbnails unless they are actually needed;
• The metadata download dialog now remembers its last used size;
• Deleting a custom column that was used in a column coloring rule makes the column coloring preferences panel unusable, now works properly;
• Caches are now stored outside the config directory for non-portable calibre installs;
• Don't crash if the user has a font on his system that is missing the OS/2 table.
