Version 0.9.13 of the Ebook reader and management software Calibre was announced on January 4, marking an important milestone for this amazing software.

If you have 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.

As usual, Calibre comes with a lot of new changes, including a new PDF output engine that also supports links. This new feature may cause some problems which will be most likely fixed in the next versions of Calibre.

• The PDF Output engine has been completely rewritten in order to support links and to implement various bug fixes. According to the developers, there may be some regressions;
• Disabled device plugins are now shown in Preferences->Ignored Devices;
• Smashwords, Google books and B&N stores have been fixed and the Nook UK store was added;
• Series numbers lower than -100, for custom series columns, are now allowed;
• Mass storage driver for rockhip-based Android smartphones has been added;
• A clear ratings button has been added to the edit metadata dialog;
• The embedding of many fonts has been fixed for the PDF output;
• Custom icons are now used for subcategories;

• A problem with regular expression character classes has been fixed;
