Amazon releases new Linux compatible mobi generation tool
Amazon is releasing today a new version of our command line tool to build Kindle books: KindleGen 1.0.
KindleGen 1.0 can be downloaded from http://www.amazon.com/kindlepublishing and is available for Windows and Linux systems. KindleGen 1.0 includes various fixes and new features, including:
- Improved image compression algorithm for small to medium size images
- Support for Macintosh encoding
- Better NCX handling
KindleGen 1.0 replaces Mobipocket's Mobigen 6.2 as our command line tool. It is a recommended download for anyone involved in building Kindle books.
