Beta for calibre change to Qt5

FYI, I am not kiwidude and this isn't my plugin. But I'm trying to help out by porting some of the plugins I use regularly while kiwidude is busy.

Attached is a test version that should work for both the existing 1.X calibre and the upcoming 2.X version calibre. 2.x will use PyQt5 which requires changes to virtually all plugins.

This version needs to be tested with the existing calibre.

Brave souls to test with with the beta 2.X version would also be appreciated. Links to the 2.X beta and discussion of the transition (for plugins) can be see at: Attn plugin developers: calibre moving to Qt 5.

I don't actually use this plugin, but I did mine it for ideas and code when I wrote my own plugins. So I thought it appropriate to port it.

So give it a try, let me know how it works.

Thanks, it seems to work fine with Calibre version 1.46, 32 bit.

@JimmXinu - seems OK on Windows 7 SP1, 1.46 [64-bit] and 1.203.1 portable. Tested extracting from Mobi, Epub, PDF, and Lit.

Hi - Newbie alert

Once the ISBN info is inserted, what's the best way update title's, authors, covers etc using ISBNs as input for a bulk update.

I hope that's clear?

Edit: I made a guess and filtered by isbn:true which highlighted books with ISBN's in green but did not select them.

Edit2: Ah, I created a virtual library based on isbn:true. If I bulk download metadata for that library will the ISBN take priority when downloading metadata?

If the metadata for a book has an ISBN as an identifier, this will be used when getting the rest of the metadata. They might also search on title and author, but the first check is using the ISBN.
