Software update: Caliber 1.47

Version 1.47 of Caliber has been released. 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 e-books 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. The following changes and improvements have been made in this release:

New Features

  • Cover Grid: Allow user defined emblems (icons) to be displayed next to covers
    Now you can have your own custom icons displayed next to covers in the cover grid, based on simple rules you create. For example, you can display a heart icon next to books with a rating of more than four stars or a tick mark next to books you read and so on. To create these rules go to Preferences->Cover Grid and click the Emblems tab on the left.
