New Features:
  • PDF Input: Add support for PDF outlines (bookmarks), if present, they are used as the metadata Table of Contents.
  • Book polishing: Add tool to losslessly compress images in the book in order to reduce its filesize, without affecting image quality
  • Edit Book: Add a new tool to compress images in the book losslessly, accessed from the Tools menu
  • Kobo driver: add support for new Kobo firmware
  • Bulk metadata edit dialog: Allow entering fractional numbers into the series number start with control.
  • Speed up moving libraries by using hardlinks instead of file copies when moving to a location on the same filesystem
  • Get Books: Disable the Amazon EU stores, at Amazon’s request
Bug Fixes:
  • Fix moving libraries via calibre leaving behind a copy of the metadata_db_prefs_backup.json file in the original library folder
  • MOBI Input: Warn about corrupted trailing data entries, instead of aborting. Getting some, even partially corrupted text is better than no text.
  • Book details: Fix single value custom text column not clickable.
  • Saving to disk: Fix custom date column being rendered in GMT instead of the local time zone when used in a save to disk template

To install Calibre just run the one line command via your systems Terminal.

sudo -v && wget --no-check-certificate -nv -O- https://raw.githubusercontent.com/kovidgoyal/calibre/master/setup/linux-installer.py | sudo python -c "import sys; main=lambda:sys.stderr.write('Download failed\n'); exec(sys.stdin.read()); main()"

That's all EnJoY!
