Version 0.9.26 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.

Even with all the ToC Editor changes that were implemented in the previous versions, this new release brings more features for the Editor.

Highlights of Calibre 0.9.26:

• Using templates to create arbitrary headers and footers is now allowed. Users will find this feature under PDF Output, in the conversion dialog;
• Users can now generate the ToC directly from individual files, inside the ebook;
• Buttons have been added to indent/unindent the current entry;
• Users can now perform right-click in order to perform various useful actions, on entries in the ToC;
• Users can now use wide images as column icons;
• Generating page numbers in PDF files is no longer causing the links to fail;
• The Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Waterstones and Gutenberg store plugins have been updated;
• A one pixel fix has been implemented for the wide left and top margins of the cover page for some PDF conversions, due to incorrect rounding;
• Dragging and dropping multiple items will no longer arrange those items in a random order;
• Financial Times UK, Sing Tao Daily, Apple Daily, Business Week, and Harvard Business Review news sources have been improved.

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.
