Freakonomics changing - heads-up

Looks like the freakonomics blog is leaving NYT (story here -

http://blogs.forbes.com/jeffbercovic...t-own-venture/

So the built-in recipe will break and need replacing.

It's a good blog and I like reading the posts there. Always thought-provoking.

Has anyone developed a new recipe, or did I miss it?

Thanks--

Thanks! Love that blog.

Does this appear as the new recipe in the Calibre app, or does one need to manually update it?

When Kovid updates the recipe at his end, all Calibre versions automatically use the new updated recipe. You don't have to update Calibre. I checked, and Kovid has updated this one, so you should be good to go - just use the builtin Freakonomics Blog recipe. If Kovid's server goes down, then the old version will kick back in, so it might help to update - just in case - but it's just for backup.

FYI, here's where to check the current code for all builtin recipes:
