The Calibre E-book management tool has reached version 1.2 which improves Support for Android Tablets and Phones. Here are the new features in Calibre 1.2:

  • Conversion: Add support for the CSS3 rem font size unit
  • MTP devices, such as Android tablets/phones: Allow ignoring any folder on the device, not just top level folders. For newly connected devices, also scan /Android/data/com.amazon.kindle for books by default (newer versions of the Kindle app place downloaded files there).
  • Speed up sorting when the book list is showing a restricted set of books, such as when the results of a search are displayed or a virtual library is used.
  • Edit metadata dialog: Add an undo option for the Trim cover button.
