Version 0.9.40 of the eBook reader and management software Calibre was announced on July 19, marking a milestone for this amazing program.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 0.9.40 is not a major build in the series, as it brings only three new features. Even so, some of the included fixes for the various functionalities of the software are rather interesting.
Highlights of Calibre 0.9.40:
• An option to insert an inline Table of Contents into the main text for the EPUB format has been added;
• A driver for LG Android phones has been added;
• When users are matching books in the library against the device manually, the search field is now displaying the name of the book;
• A regression that caused some images to be flipped when converting PDF files has been corrected;
• A regression that caused an incorrect font size in the dropcaps generated by the DOCX input plugin has been fixed;
• An extra blank page is no longer being inserted at the start of the chapter when converting some EPUB;
• A bug that could cause the reported position to be incorrect, immediately after opening a previously opened book, has been fixed;
• The Amazon plugins have been updated for the website changes.
A complete changelog can be found in the announcement. You can also check out our review of Calibre.
