Changes in this release:
- Now requires calibre 0.8.57
- Store views in the calibre database rather than a json file, to allow reuse from different computers (not simultaneously!)
- Add a support option to the "Other" tab allowing viewing the plugin data stored in the database
- No longer support upgrading from plugin versions older than 1.2.0
I've got a number of plugin updates that will be released today based around calibre 0.8.57, taking advantage of a new feature to store plugin settings inside the calibre library. The benefit of this is for users that store their library in a shared network location and use calibre from multiple machines (though never at the same time - that limitation hasn't changed!). Your plugin configuration settings which are specific to each library (such as custom column names, book exemptions, reading lists etc) will be automatically kept in sync when calibre is next opened on each machine.
Specifically for this plugin it means that your views/sort orders do not have to be recreated on each machine that you open the library on.
