Calibre's new features - ePub support and automated news download!

Two of the top features that calibre users have requested for the wonderful calibre application are about to be implemented! Or should I say could be implemented if we, the MobileRead community stand behind Kovid and support his efforts to update our favorite ebook manager.

Based on the feedback at this thread, we've created two Chipin pages that will allow calibre users to contribute to the effort.

1. Support for ePub. The goal here is to make the ePub format the base file format for calibre. This is based on a gamble that the ePub format will eventually become the "standard" for new devices. Therefore, this would be the first important step to making calibre work with multiple devices.

To support this effort, please visit:

2. The automated downloader. Many calibre users download news from news sites or magazine sites using the site fetching capabilities of calibre. This enhancement request will provide for a way to automatically download and store the fetches into the calibre library.

To support this effort, please visit:

Please participate in this effort by assisting in whichever feature you want most (or both!) using the links provided.

Thanks again Kovid for a wonderful application and for continuing to improve it!
