New Features
News download: Add algorithms to automatically clean up downloaded HTML
Use the algorithms from the Readability project to automatically cleanup downloaded HTML. You can turn this on in your own recipes by adding auto_cleanup=True to the recipe. It is turned on by default for basic recipes created via the GUI. This makes it a little easier to develop recipes for beginners.
Add an option to Preferences->Look and Feel->Cover Browser to show the cover browser full screen. When showing the cover browser in a separate window, you can make it fullscreen by pressing the F11 key.
