It is a kinds of rush for this new release. more bug fixes on it.
Welcome back, calibre users. It has been two years since calibre 3.0. This time has been spent mostly in making the calibre Content server ever more capable as well as migrating calibre itself from Qt WebKit to Qt WebEngine, because the former is no longer maintained.
The Content server has gained the ability to Edit metadata, Add/remove books and even Convert books to and from all the formats calibre itself supports. It is now a full fledged interface to your calibre libraries.
The change to use Qt WebEngine has entailed a complete rewrite of various parts of calibre, including the E-book Viewer, PDF Output, Book details etc. Every attempt has been made to preserve features and functionality in a backwards compatible way, see below for a list of some known incompatibilities.
Wow, Calibre 4.0 is comming. I can not image how different it is from 3.x.
I can wait to see it. Now download it 115MB. Install it. Then launch it.
It is a big upgrade. New version serials, starting 3.x.
Calibre 3.0 is released on June 16, 2017. Calibre 2.x is starting almost two years ago.
What is New in Calibre 3.0?
The new Content server
You can start the Content server by clicking the Connect/share button in calibre. Then just open up a browser and type http://localhost:8080 in the address bar. You will see a list of calibre libraries. Click on one and browse the books. Click on a book and you will have the option to read or download it.
Support for High Resolution (Retina) screens
Support for icon themes and a new default icon set

A new tool to easily export and import all calibre data — books, settings and plugins [2.47]
Right click the calibre icon in the main calibre toolbar and choose “Export/import all calibre data” to run this tool. It is useful if you want to move to a new computer or duplicate your calibre setup on a second computer, with minimal effort. This tool is very new, so if you run into problems, please report bugs. You can always use the old manual method of copying library folders as a fallback.
Implement tag mapping to automatically filter/transform tags when adding books or downloading metadata [2.39]
Now you can create simple rules that will filter/transform the tags when adding new books or downloading metadata for books. To setup the rules, go to Preferences->Adding books and Preferences->Downloading metadata
Icon themes: Change the calibre icons easily via icon themes [2.36]
You can now change the icons calibre uses easily via Preferences->Look & Feel->Change icon theme. Several icon themes are already available for calibre
Piwik announce the new release of its Analytics software to latest 2.14.0.
It is a major release. and This release is rated critical.
There are more than 130 tickets closed and a lot of changes or improvement on it.
In this release we have focused on improving the usability and design of Piwik. Several screens were redesigned, including the installation, administration screens and forms, data tables and buttons, the websites manager, the visitor log, and more. Performance has been slightly improved and you can now install Piwik with HHVM and TokuDB (useful for high traffic Piwik services). In terms of quality, we have made many improvements to our automated test suites.
