Apple iTunes Connect recommends against the use of calibre.

Looking at iTunes Connect (for iBioikstore publishers) today, I see this statement in the FAQ:

"Note that some tools do not create valid EPUBs. We therefore strongly recommend against using Calibre. "

I assume that Apple is talking about the output of calibre's conversion routines of which there are several.

Or is this simply about the date bug in ePub check?
