Week in Review

Calibre

This week I focused on PDF output. There was a bug introduced in 0.8.17 that broke PDF output which has now been fixed. I was also able to fix PDF output on OS X. The PDF output engine on OS X is now using OS X’s internal PDF engine instead of Qt’s. Page sizes other than A4 are now possible and the PDFs produced are no longer large image based monstrosities. Meaning, text is now selectable and can be copied.

Sigil

I am currently working on Pearl compatible regular expression (PCRE) support. An initial version has been put into git. I have an enhanced version that allows for case changes in the replacement text working. Right now I’m working caching the results of a search to improve performance.
