Version 0.9.41 of the eBook reader and management software Calibre was announced on July 27, 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 0.9.41 is a smaller release than what we’re used to, but the developer still implemented a number of important fixes and a couple of new features.

Highlights of Calibre 0.9.41:

• A button has been added in order to help users clear the current virtual library more easily;
• A driver has been added for Surftab Ventos;
• Users are now allowed to reorder the bookmarks, in the bookmarks manager, by drag and drop;
• The conversion breaking for DOCX files, that uses the heading style paragraphs to insert line rules, has been corrected;
• The last search query is now being fully sanitized in the results page;
• The page margins are no longer being removed if an unused font has been found during the subsetting of embedded fonts;
• Calibre no longer errors out when the PDF input document uses a font that cannot be subsetted, such as the Symbol font;
• A regression that was introduced in the last release, which broke the conversion of a few files with comments just before a chapter start, 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.
