Calibre is a program to manage your eBook collection. It acts as an e-library and also allows for format conversion, news feeds to eBook conversion, as well as e-book reader sync features and an integrated e-book viewer. It features library management, format conversion (all major eBook formats), syncing to e-book reader devices, fetching news from the Web and converting it into eBook form, viewing many different e-book formats, and giving you access to your book collection over the internet using just a browser.
What is new in this release:
E-book viewer: Show footnotes in a separate popup window
Now when you click on a link to a footnote/endnote, the corresponding note is shown in a separate popup window, for convenient reference. Footnote links are recognized using the EPUB 3 footnote markup as well as some heuristics. Any superscript or subscript links are assumed to be footnote links. Any link that links to another file which in turn links back to the original link, is assumed to be an endnote.
Cover Grid: Improve scroll wheel based scrolling.
On windows and linux a single "tick" of the wheel now scrolls by about half a row instead of a full screen. On OS X, scrolling is pixel based, so as you scroll faster, more content is scrolled.
Get Books: Add the Bubok Portugal store
Performance improvement for large libraries that using custom columns built with templates
Review downloaded metadata dialog: Allow merging tags by long clicking the revert button
Fix a regression in 2.8 that caused the clear button next to date fields to set the date to Jan 101 instead of undefined.

Sanitize the ImageMagick environment variables before launching external utilities.
Prevent stale 'On Device' info (from the previous connection) from showing during subsequent device connections

Fix e-book viewer not displaying cover from HTMLZ files.
Conversion: Handle input documents with crazy font sizes (1000pt +)

What is new in version 2.8:
Linux: Add support for the global menubar in Ubuntu Unity (The menu that is displayed in the top most on screen bar). It now works both with the main calibre program and the e-book editor. You can customize what appears in the menubar via Preferences->Toolbars
Get Books: Add a new store, Bubok (bubok.es)

Template language: New function user_categories() to return the list of User Categories for a given book (only works in the GUI).

Re-enable the system tray icon on linux. System tray icons now work in any desktop environment that supports the StatusNotifier spec, such as Ubuntu Unity, KDE 4+, GNOME 3, etc.
System tray icon: On windows if the calibre window is minimized, fix clicking on the system tray icon not restoring the window.
E-book viewer: Clear history when reloading the book, to avoid errors, since the locations pointed to by the history may no longer be valid anyway
Linux: Force use of GNOME button layout for dialogs when running under the GNOME, UNITY or MATE desktop environments
