Using 4.6 here. For a long time I was a faithful weekly updater, and then life got in the way... and now I just update the occasional plug-in.

Right, but as I mentioned at least twice:

I suggest you install 4.23 as that works rather well.

I installed 5, but once I saw de-DRM doesn't work I rolled back to 4.23 and will wait for everything to sort itself out.
I have the portable 5.x installed so I can test plugins. I hae been testing the current code for the DeDRM plugin and I've tested some of the plugins that I use that were not fixed for Python 3 before 5.0 was released.

Also, if you want to annotate, you need 5.x.

Any chance they are on the wayback machine at archive.org?

Because, with 4.23, you can switch between 4.23 and 5.x without affecting calibre datebase.

Well for one thing, 4.23 is compatible with the 5.x database. So if anyone wants to install a portable 5.x, then the database change won't be an issue.

Also, 4.23 as the latest updates/fixes for the 4 series.

This is a community garden. If you want tomatoes, you're welcome to start digging.

Previous versions of calibre are easy to find. Here's the last that works for DeDRM: https://download.calibre-ebook.com/4.23.0/

Anyone have a link to the step-by-step for rolling back to 4.23?

Is there any way to achieve this without needing to re-install existing plugins?

Sincerely,

Blaine
