Hopefully Calibre will fix this soon
It has nothing whatsoever to do with Calibre, so Calibre can't "fix" it. The format of the KFX DRM "voucher" files has changed. Calibre does not, and never has, removed DRM.

Any change would need to be in the DRM removal tools.

I don't have any branded devices, just a Windows 10 Phone (Lumia 930) and a Surface Pro 4. Amazon killed off their app, so now I'm stuck with unreadable books except for the clunky PC version of Kindle.

Any ideas of what I'm doing wrong? I'm brand new to Calibre and this whole EPUB & DRM thing.
Step 1 in jhowell's post worked for me. See the very first post in this thread.

Does anyone have a link for a 64 bit version of Kindle for Mac <1.25?

FYI, it looks like there was no 1.24 for Mac, and 1.25 has been pushed since 12/18...

My copy of 1.25 for Mac was working fine up until this week, when suddenly Calibre began converting Amazon files to KFX-ZIP. I can't tell what the specific cause of the breakdown was (simply newly configured books?).

However, reinstalling 1.19 (a 32 bit app?) allows much of the same functionality that was available earlier.

The "specific cause of the breakdown" was that the DeDRM plugin does not work beginning with 1.25. See the updated info in the first post.

Version 1.25.x is the first 64 bit version released for the Mac. This may be a problem for Mac users wanting to upgrade to a 64-bit only OS later this year.

Yes, indeed. It does appear likely that Mac users wanting to upgrade to the next OS (10.15) will not be able to liberate ebooks downloaded via Kindle for Mac (and Adobe Digital Editions 2.01 as well).
