New Features

  • Conversion: Detect and remove fake page margins that are specified as a margin on (nearly) every paragraph.
  • Windows build: All the python code and recipes are now put into zip files. This should decrease the amount of time the windows installer spends ‘calculating free space’
  • OSX and Linux: Add a setting in Preferences->Behavior to control the priority with which calibre worker processes run. This setting was already available on windows.
  • Driver for HTC Thunderbolt, T-Mobile Optimus, Archos 43 and Blackberry OS6
  • A new ‘authors type’ custom column
  • When building calibre from source note that calibre now absolutely requires python >= 2.7
  • Add the keyboard shortcut: Ctrl+Shift+R to restart calibre in debug mode
