v1.6.2 released

Changes in this release:
  • Change for correct support of calibre 0.9.29 virtual libraries feature
  • Add a "Add series to xxx" menu option to allow quickly adding all books in a series for the selected book(s)
  • Improve readability of the confirmation text when clearing a reading list

The virtual libraries support is a pain in the ass quite frankly for the complications it may cause, and hence may make for some quirky behaviour and confusion for those of you that make use of it.

Right now the plugin will respect whatever virtual library setup you currently have made. So that means if for instance you have a list constructed automatically based on books on the device, but you have a virtual library restriction in place, then only books that are within that virtual library will be put on the list. So your list will not reflect "all" books on the device.

I flip-flopped on whether I wanted that to be the desired behaviour or not, and as a case can be made for either way. If you want to keep your life simple and prevent any confusion, just don't use virtual libraries in conjunction with this plugin. Alternatively if enough of you want it to be changed so that lists are *not* restricted to the contents of the current virtual library then petition for it on the thread and we shall see which way the vote goes.

The other addition was asked for above on this thread - adding all books in a series to the list. Note that (a) this does it by series name (so if you have multiple series with the same name by different authors you will get all books) and (b) there is no realy way to respect order when putting on the reading list (edit the list manually if you care about series order when viewing the list).
