  • Conversion of Microsoft Word documents (.docx files generated by Word 2007 or newer)

    DOCX files created with Microsoft Word 2007 or newer can now be converted by calibre. The converter has support for lists, tables, images, all types of text formatting, footnotes, endnotes and even dropcaps. A sample docx file showing the capabilities of the converter is available: http://calibre-ebook.com/downloads/demos/demo.docx Note that this code is still very new, so there are more than likely a few bugs waiting to be squashed.

  • Kobo driver: Support for the newly released firmware 2.6.1. Also remove empty shelves from the Aura HD home page when deleting books.
  • E-book viewer: Add Keyboard shortcuts for Back and Forward (Alt+Left, Alt+Right)
