Software update: Caliber 0.9.44

Caliber is an open source and cross platform ebook management program. Among other things, it can look up all relevant information and cover images and convert ebooks to make them suitable for the various types of e-readers. It can also convert newspapers, magazines and news articles based on RSS feeds into e-book format, and books can be purchased from well-known web stores. A new version is released every Friday and the following changes and improvements have been made in this release:

New Features

  • Add an option to display all virtual libraries as tabs above the book list.
    Convenient to quickly switch between virtual libraries. To enable, click the Virtual library button and select ‘Show virtual libraries as tabs’. You can re-arrange the tabs by drag and drop and close tabs you don’t want. Right click on the tabs to restore closed tabs.
  • An improved cover trimming algorithm to automatically detect and remove borders and extra space from the edge of cover images. To try it use the ‘Trim’ button in the edit metadata dialog. This can sometimes remove too much so if you dont like the result, just click cancel. You can make the algorithm more or less aggressive via Preferences->Tweaks
  • Allow customizing the comic metadata reader plugin via Preferences->Plugins to read the series index from either the volume or the issue number of the comic. Close tickets: 1211433
