After 7.40 author sort for Kindle no longer works

Hello,

Since upgrading to 7.40 the author display/sort isn't working like it used to, and I cannot get it to display 'first name last name' and sort by last name on my Kindle.

In metadata:
Author: last name, first name
Author Sort: last name, first name
Displays:last name| first name
Sorts:last name

Author: first name last name
Author Sort: last name, first name
Displays:first name last name
Sorts:first name

In all previous version I've used, the first arrangement above resulted in displaying 'first name last name' and sorting by last name. I can't seem to make that happen anymore. Any help would be appreciated.

-M

This is caused by a regression in 0.7.39/40 that is fixed in the next release. Either revert to 0.7.38 or add a plugboard that changes the '|' character to a comma. I recommend the former.

What is the best way for me to revert? I have the original 7.38 install file. Do I need to uninstall 7.40, do a clean install and rebuild my library? Is there an easier way?

Thanks,

-M

Uninstall 7.40, then reinstall 7.38. Nothing else should be necessary. Between those two releases, your library will work as it is -- no re-adding of books.
