Version 0.9.32 of the eBook reader and management software Calibre was announced on May 24, marking a milestone for this amazing software.

The development of Calibre is going smoothly and fewer bugs remain with each edition. Even if it's still pretty far off from a 1.0 release, Calibre can be considered stable.

This is a rather small release, with very few features and changes. The new Calibre 0.9.32 has a couple of new options for the interface.

Highlights of Calibre 0.9.32:

• The number of currently selected books in the status bar is now shown at the bottom of the book list;
• The drivers for PocketBook Touch 623 and Yarvik tablet Xenta 13c have been added;
• When editing dates such as published, the users are now allowed to press the minus key, to clear the date. The = key is now used to set the date to the present day;
• A regression that caused errors when trying to convert documents that have URLs with invalid (non-utf-8) quoting, has been corrected;
• XML invalid characters are now removed when the application is backing up metadata automatically;
• A --debug-javascript option that has been causing an error, when running from a binary build on Linux, has been fixed;
• Pages that contain only an SVG image are no longer regarded as empty;
• EPUB files that have no <metadata> section in their OPF can be handled by the application.

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

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.
