v0.2 Beta

Changes in this release:
  • Add option to add/update calibre jackets
  • Add option to remove non dc: metadata elements
  • Add option to remove iTunesArtwork files
  • Rename Select none to Clear all on dialog

The adding/updating of jackets was an interesting one. At the moment I have made a couple of assumptions. Primarily that the "output profile" you choose is the same as that set in your Calibre default (unlike when you do a conversion you have the option to override this). If further down the track this is seen as something you may need to also override in this plugin then I can add a dropdown to the modify dialog.

Similarly you do not have the option to manually "override" stuff like title and authors like you could do with a conversion. So it uses the metadata you have in your library which is the same that a conversion would default to.

The removal of non dc namespace elements is in response to the request above. This removes some of the obvious traces of a Calibre conversion or editing in Sigil etc. I can't think of a reason to use this other than if you were publishing your ePub but as it sounds useful for that alone I have included it.

As I mentioned above I still need to be convinced on the iTunesArtwork files needing to be treated differently to the plist files, as I don't have an example ePub which includes the artwork in the manifest. For now at least it is a separate checkbox you can choose in this plugin. If there is some publishing standard/application that does create such manifest entries for iTunesArtwork files and someone can PM me a link to an ePub example or post the .opf manifest then I will enhance this to ensure any such entries are also removed.
