Version 0.9.9 of the Ebook reader and management software Calibre was announced on November 7, marking an important milestone for this amazing software.

If you own 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.

Calibre has become the most important software of this type, with no real competitors and the final version of it is around the corner.

There are less and less updates and improvements with each new iteration of the software and proof of this fact is the scanty changelog in Calibre 0.9.9.

Calibre has just got a handful of fixes and a few of the news sources received various updates.

Highlights of Calibre 0.9.9:

• The identifiers in each books metadata are now clickable;
• An infinite loop which occurred while trying to recover a damaged EPUB file has been repaired;
• The handling of links in files that link to the obsolete <a name> tags, instead of tags with an id attribute, has been repaired;
• A bug which occurred in the removal of invalid entries from the spine, where not all invalid entries were removed, causing the conversion to fail, has been fixed;
• Invalid flow references in the KF8 document are now ignored, instead of erroring out on them;
• The command line output on Linux systems with incorrect LANG/LC_TYPE env vars has been fixed;
• Specified page breaks using the data-AmznPageBreak attribute are no longer ignored by Calibre;
• A custom size field in PDF output not accepting fractional numbers as sizes has been repaired;
• and publio have been updated for website changes;

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