calibre V1.2 is out, with better support for MTP and minor bug fixes
Heads up, fellow calibre fans: The latest version of calibre has just been released which includes better support for MTP devices. MTP (Media Transfer Protocol) is a bit different from the normal USB Mass Storage protocol in that it doesn't show the native filesystem to the computer; rather, in order to preserve compatibility across different filesystems, it uses a file hierarchy simulated by the MTP driver. With calibre 1.2, you can now ignore any folders within that hierarchy.

The biggest change I've noticed is that book covers load much, much faster in cover grid view. You can scroll through thousands of titles without having to wait for the engine to catch up and deliver the art.

I have a transformer prime and cannot connect it directly to the computer for Calibre because of the "get list" job that immediately begins to run and errors out after about 1 hr. forcing caliber to close. The mtp device plugin does not give you the option to not get medadata from the device or change what folders it scans while connected. You also cannot stop the job while it is running. I just want to download books to my device not manage it. The only way I can do that is through a wireless connection using an android app at this time.
