Version 0.9.5 of the e-book reader and management software Calibre was announced on November 2, marking an important milestone for this amazing software.
If you have an ebook reader, the Calibre software is a must. It does so many things for the avid reader, that it would take a lot of time to just enumerate all the features.
As usual, Calibre comes with a lot of new changes, but also with support for the CSS 3 Fonts module.
Highlights of Calibre 0.9.5:
• Adding ttf/otf font files to calibre is now allowed and can be used for embedding. This means that the fonts won't have to be installed system wide. Users can add a font to calibre via the 'Add fonts' button in the font chooser dialog for embedding fonts.
• Specifying an 'alias' or friendly name by which to identify each email recipient, is now allowed;
• Support for the CSS 3 Fonts module has been added. Users can embed font families that have more than the usual four faces, with the full set of font-stretch and font-weight variations. The fonts will show on readers only if they have support for CSS 3.
• The ability to rotate images to the popup image viewer has been added;
• Searching the system for a font that can render special characters is now done faster;
• A new custom font scanner to locate all fonts on the system has been added. It's faster and less crash prone than fontconfig/freetype.
• eHarlequin and Kobo stores have been repaired;
• A bug that could cause the 'on device book matching' to fail in certain circumstances has been repaired;
• Using an SD card on Kobo devices will no longer delete shelves that contain books on that card;
• Dummy metadata is now used in the Template Editor instead of blank/unknown values.
