v1.7.2 Released

Changes in this release:
  • Add a "Check and rename book paths" menu option to the Fix submenu, for consolidating author paths after commas change made in calibre 0.8.35.
  • Fix icons broken from 1.7.1 change on new Fix menu

Calibre 0.8.35 made a change to the physical filenames for author and book files within your library. However no attempt was made to make this change backwards compatible, so users who have added books for the same authors since then can end up with a mish-mash of LN_ FN and LN, FN directories. It doesn't cause any technical issues, but if you have OCD tendencies, want to simplify incremental backups or whatever then you might like them to all be consolidated into the new naming approach.

This new option on the Fix menu scans your books for any that should contain commas in the filename.

Note this menu item should only ever need to be run once on your library, since as mentioned above any books added since 0.8.35 will have the new naming convention applied.
