Driver update - Fix WiFi id, numeric shelves and sending kepub
With the next calibre release, the Kobo and KoboTouch drivers have been updated to version 2.1.6. This has three changes.
Kobo recently released new firmware for the WiFi. This changed the device id. The new device id has been added to the list of supported ids.
With the Kepub Output Plugin allowing conversion of other formats to kepub, this has been added as a supported format. This means that kepubs that are in the calibre library can be sent to the device without the extended driver. To use this, you will need to select "kepub" in the list of supported formats in the device configuration. None of the other features of the extended driver have been added to the KoboTouch driver.
A bug was found if a numeric column was used as a shelf column. This was discovered by someone wanting to create a shelf for the ratings in the calibre library. This has been fixed and other column types should also be work.
Note: If a non-text column is used, the value will be converted to text. In general, this should be the same as displayed by calibre. But, for the rating column, the shelf name will be "1.0", "2.0", etc.
