Updating Calibre--Will my plug-ins follow?

I don't use Calibre enough (as you can see when you hear which version I'm running!). I'm starting to read a little more and I noticed that I am on Version 1.45 and the current version is 2.8.3. I don't want to mess with what I know works, which is why I have never updated Calibre. If I decided to update to the current version, will my plug-ins still work? Or do I have to update them as well?

I'm not even sure it's work updating for the little I use it, but I though maybe it would have a better way to organize my collection of books. Not sure I can keep track of collections or not on Calibre anyway. My library is mainly sideloaded books.

Also, I'm using a Kindle Voyage and just bought a refurb Kindle Touch if that makes any difference.

So what I'm really asking is will it be worthwhile updating Calibre for me? What would the benefits be? Or just keep everything as is since it's not broken.

Thanks.
Christine

If you're using Windows XP you won't be able to upgrade beyond 1.48.

If you upgrade, your plugins should survive, or you'll get a notice to update them. The good news is that the upgrade won't affect your libraries. There were a few (rarely used) plugins that didn't get updated when 2.0 was released - check the Index at the top of the Plugins sub-forum.

But whether to upgrade is your decision, this should help ==>> calibre - What's new

The link at the top will tell you of the major changes in Version 2.0. And if you scroll down to release 1.47 and then page up you can read what been added since.

There is a major release (version 3.0) in the pipeline, if there's no compelling reason to upgrade to version 2.nn now, you might want to wait for its official release, it will have a beta testing phase.

I moved this into the outer calibre forum. A decision as to whether to upgrade of not to upgrade has broader implications than plugin survival

Thanks BetterRed. I'll take a look at the What's New link you provided. I'm using an iMac, by the way.

There have been some recent issues with calibre on OSX Sierra, if you have it or anticipate you soon will, you might want to do a search for 'Sierra' in the calibre forum.
