v0.4.1 released

Hi all,

Just released a minor update to hopefully improve the shell scripts, as previously discussed.

I've also updated the metadata code a bit. It now only restarts KU/reruns USBMS if new books are added. Otherwise metadata is updated during the initial run.

As always, the release can be found at GitHub

Up next will be to figure out how I'm going to support Kobo's new-fangled series feature in FW 4.20

Have a look at the code for Kobo Utilities or one of the Kobo Drivers as they both support the new 4.20 series tab.

I generally know how it needs to be done, it's just the exact specifics on how I'm going to integrate it into my current codebase that needs to be determined.

And yes, I will probably shamelessly 'borrow' @geek1011's SQL implementation

I would go with Davidfor's implementation as that's what Calibre is using (just in case there is a difference).

They're basically equivalent, so yeah.

Basically, the issue is deciding what SeriesID to use. I think everyone's settled on the Kobo generated SeriesID if a user has a Kobo downloaded book in that series on their device, or the SeriesName otherwise.

As I said, a matter of integrating the logic/SQL in my own code. I'll probably get around to it when I can be bothered to install FW 4.20.x on my devices...

I hope it's not too difficult to implement the series stuff.

Not difficult, just a bit annoying. Also, since I'm doing it on device, my implementation needs to be relatively efficient for performance and battery reasons.

For those interested, I have an initial implementation of the new Series stuff "working".

On the downside, somewhere along the way I've introduced database corruption issues, which is Not Good.

So there won't be any sort of release until that issue is resolved.

sherman, I just want to apologise for the hassle I caused with my USB error thing (caused by my connecting the USB immediately after using the application). Your application is now my ''go to'' method for transferring my books.

Many thanks.

No hassle at all. It was a problem that needed fixing, and made the whole thing just a bit more robust.

I'm glad it's working for you!

Is it possible to manually add an ip address to connect to? I want to expose this to the Internet.

Not currently. It's an option I've thought about though.

It's not really suitable for use over the internet though, as you have to basically need to have access to both the Kobo, and Calibre GUI simultaneously to use this.

Also, I don't know how it will perform. The protocol was designed to be used on a local network.

Also, security. There is no encryption on the connection at all, so you would be exposing the connection to the world.

In summary, I really would not recommend exposing this to the internet.
