Version 0.9.28 of the Ebook reader and management software Calibre was announced on April 12, marking a 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 biggest feature introduced in this version is the addition of Virtual libraries. Users will be able to open Calibre using just a subset of the books available in the general Library.
“For example, you might want to only work with books by a certain author, or books having only a certain tag. To use this feature, click the button labeled 'Virtual Library' to the left of the search bar,” reads the official announcement.
Highlights of Calibre 0.9.28:
• Users can now copy links in the book details panel by right clicking on them;
• Support for the new Kobo Aura HD and firmware version 2.5.0 has been implemented;
•Users can now right-click on a cover to view a full-size version;
• Support has been added for Easy player cyber book e-touch and Droid 4 devices;
• The size of the panels in the location view can be adjusted;
• The handling of EPUB files, that contain images with non-ascii filenames, has been improved;
• The Laser EB720 device with newer firmware is now detectable by Calibre;
• Partial support has been added for hyperlinks.
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.
