A new version of Caliber has been released. Caliber is an open source e-book management tool and is available for Windows, Linux and macOS. It can, among other things, look up all relevant information and chaff images, and convert e-books to make them suitable for the various types of e-readers. Furthermore, the program can convert newspapers, magazines and news articles into e-book format based on RSS feeds. Also with Caliber books can be purchased at the well-known web shops. The program is actively developed and usually a new version appears every other week on Friday. In version 3.22 the following improvements have been made:
