Version 0.9.30 of the eBook reader and management software Calibre was announced on May 10, 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 a fix for the Kobo driver, but all in all, this is one of the smallest releases in a while.
Highlights of Calibre 0.9.30:
• Support has been added for showing 'Archived' books on the Kobo device;
• The supported firmware version for Kobo devices is now 2.5.3;
• A driver for Blackberry 9790 has been added;
• A tweak has been added to turn off the highlighting of the book count, when using a virtual library (Preferences->Tweaks);
• A button has been added to clear the viewer search history, in the viewer Preferences;
• Keyboard shortcuts have been added to clear the virtual Library and the additional restriction (Ctrl+Esc and Alt+Esc). Users can now press Shift+Esc to bring the keyboard focus back to the book list.
• A bug that rendered Calibre unable to read the SD card on Linux has been fixed;
• A regression that broke searching for terms containing a quote mark has been corrected;
• A regression that broke conversion of txt files when no input encoding is specified has been fixed;
• When the user is pressing Ctrl+Home/End, Calibre will preserve the horizontal scroll position in the book list.
