Calibre 0.7.34

Posted on Saturday, December 18 2010 @ 01:23:01 CET by

calibre is a free and open source e-book library management application developed by users of e-books for users of e-books.


New Features
* Page turn animations in the e-book viewer
"Now when you use the Page Down/Page Up keys or the next/previous page buttons in the viewer, page turning will be animated. The duration of the animation can be controlled in the viewer preferences. Setting it to o disables the animation completely."
* Conversion pipeline: Add an option to set the minimum line height of all elemnts as a percentage of the computed font size. By default, calibre now sets the line height to 120% of the computed font size.
* Large speedup in startup times and post metadata edit wait for large libraries
* Allow changing the font used in the calibre interface via Preferences->Look and feel
* Allow editing of the title sort value for a book via the edit metadata dialog
* Disable the cover cache. This means that if you are running calibre on an underpowered machine, you might notice some slow down in the cover browser. On the other hand, calibre's memory consumption is reduced.
* You can now restart calibre in debug mode by clicking the arrow next to the Preferences button. In debug mode, after you quit calibre, a diagnostic log will popup
