Stanza updated to 3.2, supports iOS 5

Well that was unexpected ! When iOS 5 was released, everyone announced the death of Stanza. But on November 11th, Amazon updated its underdog app to 3.2, with a single reason listed in the release notes : iOS 5 support…

But at the same time, they announced that it would be the last update they’ll ever release to Stanza.

What does it mean ? We decided that calibre2opds 3.0 would drop specific Stanza support, and we stick to our decision. We therefore suggest that Stanza users switch to another app for reading on iOS (there are plenty, Megareader is one I like).

Edit: I tried the new Stanza, and it works with our 3.0 (pre-release) catalogs ! The only thing I tested that didn’t work is the links (in a book page, internal and external links to other catalogs or web pages).

Edit 2: I heard that some people have problems with it and iOS 4 !

Sony PRS-T1, Android, and OPDS

I don’t have much time, so this post will be real quick…

One of the big new features of the upcoming version 3.0 is that it will be strictly OPDS 1.1 compliant. This means that, unfortunately, non-compliant client software (who said Stanza ?) won’t be supported anymore, but also that we will fully provide newer clients with all the new features OPDS 1.1 offers.

WIP: custom catalogs

Be gentle, this is my first post in the “Work in progress” series…

The new OPDS 1.1 standard introduces a new “featured books” concept, which I wanted to implement. And, while we were at it, I thought that you (the user) will be happy to choose which books are listed in this “featured books” catalog.
