[...]
What about you?
I would like to see a FreeBSD version.

It should just run on BSD if you can get all the dependencies installed.

I may look into that myself, I've created FreeBSD ports before so doing one to install calibre shouldn't be too awkward (I hope!)

The problem is not so much about getting it installed and running, but more a matter of getting it *installed cleanly* so it can be removed again without leaving a mess behind. Ideally that would have to be done by setting it up as a so-called "port" (which is FreeBSD's software installation- and package management mechanism).
It's ages ago since I did my last FreeBSD port and I haven't dealt a lot with python so far either, but as it seems, simond wants to take a look.

The main problem I can see is the very frequent updates

Ok I created another chipin for the ePub support!

http://calibre.chipin.com/epub-support-for-calibre

Do you guys think I should put these two links in a new thread?

Definitely!

Maybe with a catchy title like "Calibre's new features - ePub support and automated news download!"

I guess what I'm saying is: don't mention ChipIn in the title, let people discover their lust for these features by making them think they're already available.

You know... I remember doing a chipin before to get Kovid a Kindle. It was closed and the thread removed from here. I'm not sure why... something about it being begging for money?

Yeah, I'm glad, because coding epub support is going to be more fun that writing a GUI for automated news downloading.

So, what are the features of the ePub support? The description is very vauge.

Will this become the native storage format for the app, rather than a database?

Will you be able to convert other formats to ePub? What formats will be supported?

Will you be able to support ePub to other formats or still just .LRF? If so, what formats will be supported?

Will you be able to specify what formats to output when doing a save to disk/update reader?

Kovid, perhaps you can give us some more details on what you're planning and we can include that on the description?

I'm planning *2EPUB where * is the same set as supported for the conversion to LRF. Initially at least (until the bugs are worked out) the conversion will be command line based. Then I'll add an option to the GUI to let the user specify their preferred output format (EPUB or LRF) and all the rest of the GUI functions will take that choice into account.

I see... not really usefull to me at this point, since I don't really have anything to read ePub with. I think ePub to LRF and ePub to Mobi would be the most needed tools. Anyway, just thinking out loud.

I will still chipin seeing as I've gotten much use out of this tool.
