Mac File Size

Just curious if anyone else has noticed this. Every time I update to a newer version of calibre on my Mac the program file size doubles? I still can't figure out why? I update by downloading the latest version and replacing it with the one I have then the file program size doubles. I started at with a 59.4 Mb program size with the first install, then 120 something on an update then 213 Mb at 6.32. What is it doing? There is nothing different about my library, its empty save a couple of books. It seems to be doubling up on some files somewhere every version update, but where?

How can I restart this deleting everything and have calibre think it is a first time install??

It does not double on every upgrade, you just happened to pick upgrades where the installed size increased. The reason for the increase is that previously things were kept zipped up inside the app bundle, now they're not, to make it easier for people to make minor changes to their copies of calibre.

ok thanks.

Am I upgrading correctly when I do it. I just download a copy and drop it into the app folder and let it replace the existing one? Are there any plans to add the feature to have the application update itself on command?

You should delete the previous one. No plans (toom much work to maintain for a cross platform app)
