Here's another beta. I think all this fixes the problems reported.

The covers for books that are no longer sold should be retrieved. This was also part of the problem with eARCs.

I have put some handling in for "edited by", but I'm not sure it is correct. All I am doing is ignoring the "edited by". That means that for the example given, I am assuming the author is just "James H. Schmitz". For this case, I think it is correct. For others, it might not be.

The changes might have fixed the problem with "Phoenix Ascendant". I didn't do anything specific for this, but I can't reproduce the problem today.

As usual, please report any problems. A link to the problem book is really handy, as is a copy of the logs. If everything is OK, I'll arrange for a release sometime next week.
Phoenix Ascendant appears to work correctly now. However, I had an eARC end up with a completely wrong title -- Carousel Seas eARC was returned as Carousel Tides (non-eARC).

Another issue: When the Series information is already set, but with a different series name than Baen has chosen, the plugin overrides that to Baen Series Name [1]. I'm sure I'm not alone in having some series listed in Calibre with a different name than Baen has chosen to use. My personal preference would be for the series information to be written ONLY when there isn't something there already.

For example, with the Carousel series, the author (and I) have chosen to refer to it as the Archer's Beach series, so the eARC was in Calibre as Archer's Beach [3]. That was overwritten to Carousel [1]. On another book, When the Devil Dances, where I used the same exact series name as Baen, the behaviour was correct. It did not overwrite the series index.

Works with all of my test cases, some of which did not work with the original plugin.

I just tested and this isn't happening here. Can you post the log? And does this happen when you only use Webscriptions for the search, or are you using other plugins at the same time?

Sorry, but that is how calibre works. A metadata search plugin gets the results and passes them back to calibre to apply. Calibre is probably only changing what is different. In the case of the series info, if the series name changes, it is probably resetting the name and index and then applying the new values. This means that the current series index is replaced by whatever comes from the search. As the plugin doesn't set one, calibre uses whatever rules it has for choosing the series index.

What I had completely forgotten or possibly didn't know, are that the rules can be changed with a tweak. The "Auto increment series index" tweak has two options. I have:

Code:
series_index_auto_increment = 'first_free'

use_series_auto_increment_tweak_when_importing = False
That uses 1 as the series index.

Changing the latter option to "True" will use the same rules as used when setting the series in the metadata editor.

Not what I meant. This thread is the place to discuss the plug-in, but Baen’s Bar (either the EBooks conference or Toni’s Table) would be where to discuss what Baen’s site can do to accommodate the plug-in, or what features of the new site the plug-in might be able to use.

That is also what I took from your post.

There are 2 ends of any download plugin. Sometimes the adjustment needs to be at the source end for simplicity

I can't repeat it now. I suspect some previous metadata edit had inserted an incorrect ISBN value, which Calibre, of course, accepted. The eARC should have ONLY a webscription value, since it's not sold anywhere else.

Any word on a "release version" of this? It seemed like we had most problems resolved...

I'm waiting for kiwidude. When I change his plugins, I send a message to him about the update and he updates the first post. Usually he is pretty quick, but it has been a week or so this time.

Any forum Mod can do that
If you PM me:
1) the edited BB code section for the index, I can paste (replace) it there (usually just a rev level bump)

2) Instructions (new text) of what should done to post 1

Minor nit...

Just to mention that in __init__.py around line 28, "Bean" should be "Baen". Otherwise, the plugin works for me.
