New Features
Kobo Touch: Display Preview Tag for book previews on the device
Improved display of grouped search terms in Tag Browser
When adding HTML files to calibre, add an option to process links in breadth first rather than depth first order. Access it via Preferences->Plugins and customize the HTML to ZIP plugin
Conversion pipeline: Add option to control if duplicate entries are allowed when generating the Table of Contents from links.
Closes tickets: 806095 [External link]
Metadata download: When merging results, if the query to the xisbn service hangs, wait no more than 10 seconds. Also try harder to preserve the month when downlaoding published date. Do not throw away isbnless results if there are some sources that return isbns and some that do not.
