Description:

calibre is a e-book library management application. It is free, open source and cross-platform in design and works on Linux, OSX and Windows. calibre is meant to be a complete e-library solution and thus includes, library management, format conversion, news feeds to ebook conversion as well as e-book reader sync features.

A video demonstration of some features is available at http://calibre-ebook.com/demo

WARNING:
This is the bleeding edge version of calibre intended for Factory.
You may also install it on openSUSE 11.4, but be aware that python
will be updated to version 2.7.1.
The last calibre version for openSUSE 11.4 that does not require a python
update is available as package calibre07 from Documtation:Tools.

o When bulk downloading metadata for more than 100 books at a time,
automatically split up the download into batches of 100.
o When deleting books from the Kindle also delete 'sidecar' .apnx and
.ph1 files as the kindle does not clean them up automatically

only in case.
o Fix scene break character pattern not saved in conversion preferences

for each item, to easily sort by number of items

working directory
o Fix conversion dialog not allowing series numbers larger than 9999
o Conversion pipeline: When adding/removing entries to the manifest,
ignore unparseable URLs instead of erroring out on them
o SD Card in Azbooka not being detected
o Conversion pipeline: Strip out large blocks of contiguous space (more
than 10000 contiguous blanks) as these slow down the conversion
process and are almost always indicative of an error in the input
document.

o Regex builder: Show a nicer error message when the user has the file
open in another program on windows.
o When converting in the GUI, set all identifiers present in the book's
metadata in the output file, if the output format supports them.

 Problem with Greek

 
 by MadAGu on: Dec 5 2010
 
Score 50%

Well, you are creating a great app, but i have the following problems:
1.I have some books with greek titles and when the file name has the character "-" followed by space (for example ΓΕΙΑ - ΓΕΙΑ2) then the tag list on the left is disappeared. I found that if i delete the space (ΓΕΙΑ -ΓΕΙΑ2) then there is no problem.

2. If i try to have a book series with greek name then the same problem appears again.

I think that something is happening with the encoding you are using with sqlite. Try utf8 for encoding the characters, this might be the issue.
Besides that, maybe the format you are using for saving data in the table has to do with that. If you are using varchar (or something like that), change it to blob, if it is possible...

Wrong address. This is not the developer, but a packager. Visit http://calibre-ebook.com/ for the app.

Apart from that, this software doesn't depend on KDE and should be filled under qt-apps.org.

Thanks for reporting that. We are trying to fix this. It looks like an error in python-sip.

Hehe :-)
I meant a real Bugreport on http://bugzilla.novell.com. That helps to find and fix errors better. This Platform isn't a real Support-Range

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
