Software update: Caliber 3.23




A new version of Caliber has been released. Caliber is an open source e-book management tool and is available for Windows, Linux and macOS. It can, among other things, look up all relevant information and chaff images, and convert e-books to make them suitable for the various types of e-readers. Furthermore, the program can convert newspapers, magazines and news articles into e-book format based on RSS feeds. Also with Caliber books can be purchased at the well-known web shops. The program is actively developed and usually a new version appears every other week on Friday. In version 3.23 the following improvements have been made:

New features
Kobo driver: Add support for new firmware. Closes tickets: 1767589
Book polishing: Add an option to upgrade EPUB 2 to EPUB 3
DOCX Input: Convert text written with dingbat fonts such as Winging or Symbol correctly.
When to use the PDF file, add a button to render more pages, if needed
TXT Input: Add support for embedded images that use relative URLs when converting markdown or textile. Note that if you are converting using the ebook-convert command line tool as the main caliber program moves around, so relative references will not be valid.
Edit book: Insert special character: Add an option to select if you should search for words or any of the words
Edit book: Insert special character: When searching by name match prefixes in addition to whole words. So you can now type “horiz” to match “horizontal”.
Linux installer: Simplify the command used to install and add support for Ubuntu 18.04 which is missing a default python executable
When upgrading EPUB 2 to EPUB 3 add the epub namespace to all HTML files, for convenience. Closes tickets: 1765944

Edit Book: EPUB 3 files that has an tag without an rel = “external” href attribute.

When updating EPUB 2 to EPUB 3 ensure only a single date: date element is present in the OPF
