Version 1.18 of eBook reader and management software Calibre has been announced and it packs quite a few changes, despite the fact that a worldwide vacation has been in effect for the last few days.
According to the developers, an option to control how the completion works when editing authors/tags/series/etc has been added.
“By default, when completing items, Calibre will show you all the candidates that start with the text you have already typed. You can instead have it show all candidates that contain the text you have already typed.”
“To do this, go to Preferences->Tweaks->Completion mode. For example, if you type asi it will now match both Asimov and Quasimodo, whereas the default behavior would match only Asimov,” reads the announcement.
Highlights of Calibre 1.18:
• A check for too large HTML files when running the check book tool has been implemented;
• The CSS rules in the output stylesheet are now sorted using a “natural” sort algorithm, so that calibre2 sorts before calibre10;
• The cover thumbnails are now uploaded in the proper format for Cybook Orizon;
• A Linux/OS X driver for Trekstor Pyrus LED has been added;
• A driver for Tagus Lux has been added;
• The live replacement of entities is now working properly on some non-US keyboard layouts;
• A bug in the regex engine that Calibre uses and that could cause various incorrect results in some special circumstances has been fixed.
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.
