Hi everyone,

Latest Update: The current version is 1.1.0
Recent Changes:
  • Changed ini file save location

This should happen without the user realising it. (If the ini file exists in the old location its contents will be transferred to the new location when the user clicks the "Change external editor" link.) This means that users on Vista/Windows 7 will now be able to add or change the external editor without running the application as an administrator.

Sincerely,
Ben.

Because it's possible to get problems, if the field is filled with the same code - can happen, when you convert epubs by batch with atlantis word processor. the program fills the field with a date-time-code - but unfortunately it can happen when the books are small enough, that the code is in two books the same - and then some readers have problems with these books...
This issue has been addressed in the latest beta version of Atlantis Word Processor. Global unique identifiers are now used instead. No chance of a duplicate ID from now on.

New version: 1.1.2

Hi everyone,

For a while I have been wanting to give users an easier way to discover if a new version of EPub Metadata Editor is available. I have now added a way to do this. Under the About button, you will now see a link. When you click the link (assuming you have an active internet connection), the program will check a webpage, retrieve the latest version information and compare it to the current installed version. If there is a new version, a dialog box will appear with a link to the Google Code download page.

Let me know what you think! (I have not made the check automatic on program start, since it slows the start down too much.)

Sincerely,
Ben.

Latest Update: The current version is 1.1.2
Recent Changes:
  • Added "Swap Creators" button
  • Added "Check for update" link (under About button)

Thanks Ben. Great program.

I'm looking for a program able to export some ebook metadata fields from command line, something like:

ebubmetadataeditor -EbookName -title

to retrieve the ebook title

(I would like to use it with Autohotkey and create a batch file that will place every ebook in a folder with his ebook title as folder name)

I don't know any program or script able to do that. Also Calibre as far as I know doesn't have this feature.
Any hope to see it implemented in your program?

Thanks,
mabe

Hi mabe,

That would be possible. However, because the program is written in VB.Net it would be fairly slow. (Certainly, the first time the program starts up it can take quite a long time. Subsequent starts are quicker.)

I hope to have time to do some more work on the program, so I will see about adding commandline features.

Sincerely,
Ben.

New version: 1.2.0

Hi everyone,

A new version of EPub Metadata Editor is now available.

Latest Update: The current version is 1.2.0
Recent Changes:
  • Added "Rename" link (to rename the original epub file)
  • Added console application for extracting metadata using the command line

The rename link will open up a dialog box which allows you to build a template using some of the metadata fields. Once you have prepared your template, click the button with arrows on it to auto-generate the new filename. Alternatively, you can simply change the filename manually. (Note that the template is saved to the ini file so it will be remembered for next time!)

(It is possible that a future version could include the rename functionality in the "Batch Operations" panel, if there is user interest.)

The console application was requested by a user and provides a means of extracting certain metadata fields from an epub. In principle, more fields could be added, but at the moment you can only extract Title, TitleFileAs, Creator and CreatorFileAs.

Sincerely,
Ben.

Hi everyone,

I just realised that the console version is not deleting the temporary files. So I will try and fix that later today.

Sincerely,
Ben.

New version: 1.2.2

Hi everyone,

A new version has been released. Here's the changelog:

Latest Update: The current version is 1.2.2
Recent Changes:
  • Added EPUB3 handling (alpha release)
  • Error handling in rename template
  • Simple file viewer
  • Various bug fixes

So the big addition is EPUB3 handling. Note that this is only an ALPHA release. Please be careful using this program to edit the metadata of EPUB3 files. I highly recommending making a backup of your original files in case something gets messed up beyond repair.

Since the rename template is used to rename files, certain characters are not allowed. The template textbox now will not allow these characters to be entered. It also provides a help message for obtaining a "%" character in the final filename.

The simple file viewer simply allows you to open one of the html/xhtml files inside the EPUB file and see what it looks like. I have no idea whether the internal CSS and font files are used; it simply uses the webbrowser built into VB.Net.

Sincerely,
Ben.
