TomeRaider 3 is Final now
Last week we mentioned an available beta of TomeRaider 3. Now you can download the final version of this often underrated e-book reader software.
I don't think much anything has changed from the last beta, so this here is new since TomeRaider 2: Categories/Filters for database queries, image support, accelerated full text searches, better and faster compression, full html support, DRM and encryption.
TomeRaider is optimized for large text files and dictionary lookups. For instance, you could convert the Wikipedia database to a highly optimized, searchable .tr3 file.

Did someone already install this release? I'd be curious to hear how it compares to iSilo and Plucker.

I've installed it, and like the last beta, was suitably unimpressed.
If I'm going to spend my time marking up an ebook by hand, I'd much rather spend the time marking it up in XML and writing a quick little DTD so that .xml file renders in a browser, than waste that time converting the ebook to some pseudo-HTML format that only ONE reader can support.
At least with the ebook in a common, standards-compliant, extensible format, I can convert it to whatever else I need after the fact (including converting it to TomeRaider's pseudo-HTML "TrText").
This gets 0 stars in my book.

What Tome Raider is good at is handle huge databases, while I didn't test this one extensively, It's the only program currently capable of handling the Wikipedia database at a reasonable pace. On the PPC, TR2 handle it and HTML flawlessly. There's still no TR3 version of Wikipedia, so until then, I decided against upgrading (both Palm/PPC).
For Palm, I hope that they had overcome the previous 30MB limit, there was no mention of this on their website.
