Nook STR Does Not Support eReader PDB

Barns and Noble has announced and is pre-selling the new Nook second generation Simple Touch Reader (STR). Looking at the specifications the eReader PDB format is not listed as being supported. Only EPUB and PDF are listed. My concern is the fact that I still get books in the PDB format from B&N and this […]

Calibre Weeks in Review

Once again this is a weeks in review instead of once. I’ve been focusing more on new features than blogging. Calibre 0.7.57 is out and is also the beta for 0.8. Adding the tweak “test_eight_code = True” will enable the 0.8 features. Get Books aka Stores For quite some time I’ve been working on integrating […]

Calibre Week in Review

PMLZ got images named properly in the output. PML generation now has .png added to the end […]

There was no week in review last week because I went on vacation this past week. So this week in review combines everything since the last week in review. I’ve made a few bug fixes to some output formats, PDB metadata and FB2 output mainly. The major things I’ve been working on is a bit […]

Calibre Week in Review

Device interfaces can now be configured in the GUI. Also, there is a simple framework for creating plugin configuration widgets. I’ve added a metadata reader for the eReader format. However, eReader supports 3 ways to set the metadata in the file. 1) In the pdb header (only supports setting a short title). 2) In the […]
