Version 0.9.25 of the Ebook reader and management software Calibre was announced on March 29, marking an important milestone for this amazing software.

The development of Calibre is going smoothly and less bugs and fixes remain with each edition. Even if it's still pretty far off from a 1.0 release, Calibre can be considered stable.

The previous version improved the ToC generation (table of contents), but some issues still remained. Calibre 0.9.25 has brought some changes for the ToC Editor, making it even better.

Highlights of Calibre 0.9.25:

• When the user has enabled "checking for duplicates," the application will use the same duplicates found dialog, as it is used during manual adding;
• The ToC Editor is now allowed to find a location quickly when browsing through the book. The user can now select a location for a ToC item;
• The ToC Editor has received a button that can be used to quickly flatten the entire table of contents;
• Before converting a single book to EPUB or AZW3, an option is presented to the user to automatically launch the Table of Contents editor, after the conversion completes. The option can be found under the Table of Contents section of the conversion dialog;
• Better error messages are now presented when the user provides an invalid input;
• The application will now use in new retrieval the .jpg extension for jpeg images, as apparently Moon+ Reader cannot handle .jpeg type formats;

A complete changelog can be found in the official announcement. You can also check out our review of Calibre.

Keep in mind that if you want to compile the software yourself, you will need GLIBC 2.10 or higher, and xdg-utils and python ≥ 2.6 installed (3.x will not work). More details about the required dependencies can be found on the official website.
