Version: Calibre 0.8.0
Date: May 11, 2011
|I would recommend downloading this direct from the developer website. But Calibre is by far the best ebook software I've found. It is free, but has better functionality than any paid eBook software I've tried. It's constantly being updated with new features and tweaks. It can convert pretty much any format to any other format, handles sending to almost any device, and can be customized extensively with plugins. Works on windows/mac/linux, though I gather this is the windows installer. Once again, go to the developer website. Google search Calibre Ebook and it is the first result.|
