Calibre and Kindle Format 8

The latest download of Calibre includes experimental conversion to KF8.:

'calibre can now generate Amazon's new KF8 format MOBI files. To turn on this feature, go to Preferences->Tweaks and click Plugin Tweaks. In the box add: test_mobi_output_type = 'both' calibre will now produce MOBI files that have both the old MOBI format and the new KF8 format in them. To learn more about KF8, see: Note that calibre support for KF8 is still experimental and there will likely be bugs.'

I've tried to follow the instructions - but when I do a conversion all I get is one Mobi file - no KF8.

Can anyone tell me (simple terms please) what I am doing wrong?

Many thanks,
