Which version still works and are there any limitations/downsides? Are there any other relevant considerations?

That version doesn't appear to have a standalone app in it.

Mind, the last version that actually worked easily standalone was the one before KFX support was added (6.5.5?).

I've never understood the reason for not having a standalone version. I started using it shortly after the standalone version went away, but would MUCH prefer it to be standalone as I don't really use Calibre to manage my library, but rather as a toolbox full of command line utilities that allow me to do various things.

The next version should have support for the DeDRM plugin in ebook-convert (and probably other tools that act on ebook files directly).

Terry Pratchett had the solution:

“Some humans would do anything to see if it was possible to do it. If you put a large switch in some cave somewhere, with a sign on it saying 'End-of-the-World Switch. PLEASE DO NOT TOUCH', the paint wouldn't even have time to dry.”

DRM plug-in No Longer Working?

I purchase 10+ books a week from the Amazon Empire but store them in Calibre long term. All of a sudden the DeDRM is busted and I get syntax errors trying to install the latest version. I assume this has to do with the recent "upgrade" to switch Python versions(?)

Any idea if this is going to work again or do I have to back-off versions and freeze like I had to with the Kindle app?

Do you run Windows? If so, there's a simple solution to your problem. Keep version 5 installed but also install the 4.23 portable version. Use the portable version to add DRMed eBooks to your library and the 6.8.0 version of DeDRM will work with the 4.23 portable version.

Copy your settings directory in the Calibre Portable directory and reinstall DeDRM 6.8.0. Then you can use 4.23 to remove DRM and 5.x for everything else.

Do not install any earlier version portable besides 4.23 as earlier versions are not compatible with the 5.x database. There is already a post someplace on MR showing that a version earlier then 4.23 crashing because it's no longer compatible with the 5.x database.

Unless you plan to use the new features of calibre 5 right away (mainly annotations in the reader) an even simpler solution is to uninstall calibre 5 and re-install calibre 4.23 for now.

There is an effort to update DeDRM in progress, so hopefully the current situation will be temporary.

Yes, that would work. I have 4.23 fully installed and 5.x portable installed for testing plugins.
