  • Calibre eBook Reader and Converter Gets New Filters for the Library

    The famous Calibre eBook reader, converter, and editor has received a new update and is now ready for download.

    The latest Calibre iteration is not an impressive one as it doesn't really bring anything of major importance, but it's here nonetheless. As usual, there are a couple of new features and just a few fixes, but as new releases go, this won't impress a lot of people.
