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 updated the plugin and downloaded metadata from Goodreads. I also was able to customize the plugin without a hitch.

Thanks again.

Not sure whether this is the right place to ask - if it is not it would be great if you could point me in the right direction.

Is there any way to scrape the "first published" date from goodreads?
E.g. "Swords and Deviltry" https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/...s_and_Deviltry
The book was published in 2006 however the first time it was published was 1970 (attached screenshot).

So far I have been unable to ever get calibre to store the 1970 date and I always get 2006

I have tried selecting and unselecting "Use published date of "first edition" (from worldcat.org)" - it makes no difference.

Thank you

4. Rename your existing goodreads.json file to goodreads.json.org in case you feel the need to go back to it.
5. Place the new goodreads.json file in the plugins directory.
6. Start calibre

Now you can go to Preferences - Metadata download - select goodreads - click Configure selected source to see what is currently mapped for goodreads metadata downloadable tags.
I can't seem to find the calibre configuration directory on my Mac so I can add the expanded .json file. Can anyone help me figure out how to do this?

In Calibre, click Preferences > Miscellaneous > Open calibre configuration directory.
