Calibre 0.7.0 released - see site details below

http://calibre-ebook.com/new-in/seven to see what's new in 0.7.0

Kovid is saying that the focus is on the interface in 0.7.x.

Cool!

The video on the "what's new" page is really informative.

Nerdy Easter egg: At 12:16 look for a split second screenshot of a command line window showing Kovid's FFMPEG encoding session.

Damn! I was hoping no one would spot that.

Nice 0.7 release and calibre runs pretty quickly. Congratulations.

A small question about the curious look of three icons in the lower right part of my joint screenshot. It looks strange, covering a motorbike like form ?.

I am using Ubuntu Lucid 32 bits.

I read Rogers' post and totally thought it kind of looked like a bike too. I thought perhaps a dev liked motocross. Perception is a fickle bitch eh?

Does timlegge's addon to let you manage books (https://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=85226) still work in with 7? I don't want to update until I know for sure.

Thanks!

Hi Megan,

I haven't used all the features yet, but it appears to be working well in the new version.

Myles.

Make sure you get the second zip file that Timlegge linked to in message #12.

Hmmm, I'm getting an error apparently because I have no SD card in the slot.

Make sure you are not sending to the storage card (click the arrow next to the send books button and check the default send to device action).

[QUOTE=mylesau;944166]Hi Megan,


I get the impression that there two files .. we use the second one ?? and what is the difference

I tried the first using Linux Ubuntu and received an error message indicating i was unable to delete the files

I have made a backup of the Kobo folder , but will update it before doing anything

I guess it is what next

Yes Harry, as I said, you want the second file. The first one was for a slightly older version of calibre, the second one works with the latest version of calibre 0.7.0.

Probably best to post in that thread rather than this one.
