Epub3 - Penguin new release fiction - download stuff
Please remind me about buying Epub 3 ebooks, my recollection is that it shouldn't be a problem downloading it into Sony Reader for PC, v2.2 (and not updated to the Kobo version).
That is, it shouldn't be a problem provided Kobo hasn't changed to an updated ?? (I can't remember what it's called ) And if Kobo has changed to this updated ??, then it would mean that it could only be downloaded into ADE 3?
Also, from threads/posts over the last month or so it seems that downloading the kepub version of Epub 3 is fixed now, so that should mean that obok can handle it on entry into Calibre?
This particular ebook I don't want to buy, but it struck my attention because it's newly released, May 2015, is a Penguin and is fiction.

Was there ever a problem downloading a KEPUB, whether based on EPUB3 or not?
I thought the problem was downloading the ADE-compatible EPUB3 (which doesn't use oboK anyway).
As for whether or not Kobo has enabled hardened DRM on the Adobe Content Server, thus necessitating ADE3/4... probably not, simply because retailers don't seem to be brave enough to take the jump, despite demanding the upgrade in the first place.

I will check again now for you...
[insert 10 minute]
This is available as epub3 for my region. I downloaded it with ADE2 and added to Calibre and stripped the DRM just now.
