I tried different things and I managed to get version 4 to work on the Cybook. So now version 4 is the default and the author information should be visible if it it there. The new release is 0.0.11.
So now I can take a PlamDOC copy of a book from Mobileread and add the author. On my Cybook my copy of Blue Hand now have the author Edgar Wallace shown under the title in the 5 books per page library view. I think I will fix all my books so that the author is shown since it looks so much nicer.
