MX 17 Repository: The Calibre Thread

#1 Postby Stevo » Wed Jan 10, 2018 7:17 pm

We now have the latest 3.15 Calibre release in the test repository, backported from Debian Sid.

It's a Swiss-army tool for ebooks; organizing, reading, converting, loading, and creating them from websites automatically if you want the latest news loaded onto your reader.

If you give it a try, please let us know how it performs, otherwise we won't have data to move it to the main repository.

We now have Calibre 3.19.0 in the test repository. Changes include:

Driver for the new PocketBook 740
Allow using relative URLs in comments type metadata. The relative URLs are interpreted relative to the book folder in the calibre library
Edit book: Reports: Do not show characters from the HTML markup in the characters report.

Closes tickets: 1753788
Allow adding the Virtual library button to any toolbar/menu via Preferences->Toolbars & menus

Bug fixes

Server: Fix server becoming unresponsive if a client sends invalid SSL data at exactly the right moment
Conversion heuristics: Make unwrapping recognize Georgian letters as well.

Closes tickets: 1753533
Make de-serialization of stored conversion options safe against maliciously crafted input

Closes tickets: 1753870
E-book viewer: Change the file format used to import/export bookmarks to use JSON. This prevents malicious bookmarks files from causing code execution.

Closes tickets: 1753870
Make the history completion for the search and replace edit box case-sensitive.

Closes tickets: 1752447
PDF Output: When the input document contains multiple anchors with the same value, use the first anchor rather than the last. This follows browser behavior.

Closes tickets: 1752825

It can be installed in Caibre's Preferences, in the plugins section, "get new plugins".

The plugin's README on github https://github.com/kfix/calibre_plugin_djvumaker says it requires a backend to do the conversion. I see pdf2djvu is in the standard repos; though I don't know if the input document must be in the PDF format.

Thank you for having this in the test repo; it's very convenient. Before MX, I was just using the command-line installer. Like an animal. I've uninstalled that and switched to the repo version.

I believe that MX 15/16 users will still have to resort to the CLI installer, since that version bundles a newer Qt 5 than we can provide, but MX 17's Qt 5 is still good enough. We'll try to keep Calibre current in our repo as long as possible, now that Debian is also keeping upstream versions current.
