Version 0.9.37 of the eBook reader and management software Calibre was announced on June 28, 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.

Calibre 0.9.37 is a smaller release that the usual, but that shouldn't stop anyone from downloading it. Font embedding is only one of the included features which has been a long time coming.

Highlights of Calibre 0.9.37:

• An option to embed all referenced fonts has been implemented. This applies to all fonts that have been referenced in the document. The application will search your system for the referenced font, and if found, the font will be embedded. This only works for formats that support this kind of action, such as EPUB or AZW3). The option is under the Look & Feel section of the conversion dialog;
• When the user is generating a ToC from files, and the files have no text, the ToC will still exist;
• Support has been added for the page-progression-direction that is used to indicate page turns;
• A --from-opf option has been added in order to read the metadata from the OPF files directly;
• A regression that broke scanning for books on all devices that used the Aluratek Color driver has been fixed.

A complete changelog can be found in the 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.
