Manage, view and convert your e-book collection

Is your e-book collection is a disorganised mess of different formats and competing viewers? It doesn't have to be that way. Calibre is an e-book management tool that will quickly bring order to the situation, and help you get more from the format, and (if you have one) your portable e-book reader.

The process starts by letting the program organise your e-books library. Point calibre at your files and it'll quickly (and almost automatically) build a database around your collection, downloading metadata like covers for extra visual appeal. You can then sort and search your books by title, author, date published, rating, custom tags and more, making it quick and easy to find whatever you need.

Calibre can then display your book, too (as long as it's not DRM-protected), with an integrated viewer that handles all the main formats and supports features like table of contents, CSS, printing, searching, embedded fonts and more.

You also get a comprehensive conversion tool that will convert documents in all the main e-book formats (CBZ, CBR, CBC, EPUB, FB2, HTML, LIT, LRF, MOBI, ODT, PDF, PRC, PDB, PML, RB, RTF, TCR, TXT) to any of twelve standard formats (EPUB, FB2, OEB, LIT, LRF, MOBI, PDB, PML, RB, PDF, TCR, TXT).

And there are many surprising extras. Calibre can automatically fetch news from websites or RSS feeds, for instance, then format the results into an eBook. A powerful sync tool will work with many different devices, from dedicated e-book readers like the Kindle to Android phones and the iPhone. And the program even includes an integrated web server that allows you to access your e-book collection from a browser, anywhere in the world.

Version 2.83.0 changes include (release notes):

- PDF Output: Default to generating PDFs with a page size of letter instead of taking the page size from the output profile.
- PDF/DOCX Output: Add separate, pdf/docx specific, page margin settings that override the common settings.
- Table of Contents tool: Add an undo button
- Metadata jacket: Show custom rating columns using stars
- Metadata jacket: Change formatting of series to match that used by the book details panel. Also allow access to the raw series name and number when customizing the jacket template.
- calibredb check_library: Vacuum database when running the check
 -Check Book: Add a check for empty identifier elements

Verdict:

If you've any kind of non DRM-protected e-book collection then you need this amazingly versatile and feature-rich management application. Go download it immediately

Calibre E-Book Viewer & Converter

Posted by: Nicholas Jones, 17 February 2012 18:53

This is really good. I've used this for ages. Will let you read just about any format of e-book, ever produced. As far as converting goes, you must be realistic. PDF to TXT is not going to work well! But basic converting present no worries, although I wouldn't lose sleep of the quite bewildering array of option, that have been stuffed into this piece of kit. This one piece of software were reading through the HELP files, will, er... definitely help.

Unreal Engine 4.15.1

Free Full Commercial Software

Unreal Engine is Epic Games' game engine, a powerful suite of tools for developing anything from basic 2D games to professional RPGs, first person shooters and whatever else you like.

Wide standards support - DirectX, OpenGL, JavaScript/ WebGL - means your projects can be targeted to almost any platform: consoles, iOS, Android, Windows, OS X, Linux, HTML5 browsers and more.

There's a vast amount to learn, of course, and that's even before you start building your game. But there's plenty of documentation, tutorials, demos and sample projects to point you in the right direction.

The package is now entirely free, too - no annoying limitations, nag screens or anything else. Epic now only requires that you pay a 5% royalty after the first $3,000 of revenue per product per quarter. And even then, you "pay no royalty for film projects, contracting and consulting projects such as architecture, simulation and visualization."
