The eviewer now loads the mobi files as fast as the epubs. No apparent speed increase anywhere else but everything is working as expected.

Thanks all, so far no major show stoppers, so I'm relieved, and its good to have the speed increases (somewhat) confirmed

No change.

I'll try it at home tomorrow (won't be home till late tonight), and see what happens if I'm not behind a proxy server.

OK

I'm the only one so far with a touchscreen.

On my HP TX2, the multitouch scrolling (which works pretty much everywhere else) doesn't work. But, it is at least acknowledging quick up/down gestures (which I think is an improvement). And, I can scroll the scroll bar by grabbing it and scolling (I think before I had to push on the up and down arrows).

So, it's improved a little, I think. I don't use it much in tablet mode though, so I'm not sure if I'm 100% correct here. I'll try to play with it more and roll back and see how it changes.

Deleting books takes a lot longer, even if it is one book. Changing meta data in a group takes forever, I think 5 times as longer as it used to do. It even looks like calibre isn't responding.

It can't find metadata anymore on isdndb.com, but that could be a connection problems, happened before.

I am using windows xp, sp3

Can anyone else confirm that, I don't see it on my winxp system, deleting and bulk editing metadata appear to be the same speed as before.

I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit.

Opening - Faster
Added 100 books - Much faster
Bulk Edit Basic Metadata - Faster
Bulk Download Metadata - Same (No problem with isdndb.com)
Convert to various formats - Faster (I would have thought that performance here would been flat...)
Open Various Books Formats and Sizes - Much, much, much faster
Reflow text on same books - Nearly instant!!!
Delete all my test books - Same, Fast (Not slow at all)

The Epub reader is much, much faster on my TX2 laptop (Turion X2 processor, 4GB RAM, 5400RPM drive).

My desktop is still faster compared to it though (quad-core / SSD) on the old version.

Huge improvement for weaker processors - my conclusion.

I find calibre on my Windows XP machine to be about the same, except for the viewer which is quite a bit quicker.

My library is 4000 books and the only bulk metadata update issues I have, I don't believe are new with this change. If I select a group of books, say 4 or 400 books, and add or remove specific tags it is relatively quick, but if I add one tag and select remove all tags, even with just a couple of books it takes an incredibly long time. Almost as if it is touching every record in the process of removing the tags from a couple of books.

As I stated, I don't think this is new to this release. I did think this slowness had been previously eliminated so I was surprised I saw this slowness again.

Remove all will be slow because what it does is try to remove every single tag in your database from the selected books. If you have a lot of tags, this will take a while. This could be sped up by creating a special method to handle removing of all tags, please open a ticket for it and I'll implement it when I have the time.

Hi Kovid
Official 0.7.28 is sooo much faster when viewing books.
Need more time to tell about ALL the other parts.

Trouble with 0.7.28 on VISTA

I duly updated today, having been eager for a quicker preview, but find that Calibre 0.7.28 can be started, displays the splash screen and then disappears without a window. The processes seem to be running, though.

I am on Vista 32-bit, with a 4-core Intel processor.

Do I need to go back to 0.7.27?

Thanks for any help,

Mixx

You can get more debug output by starting calibre from a command prompt as

calibre-debug -g

Is this still true? I don't see mention of it on the calibre website.

Thanks!

EDIT: Hmmm, now I notice that the link said 7.27, not 7.28. So the uninstall was only if you were using the beta version with the 7.27, wasn't it?
