Release: 0.9.6 [10 Nov, 2012]
New Features

    Experimental support for subsetting fonts

    Subsetting a font means reducing the font to contain only the glyphs for 
the text actually present in the book. This can easily halve the size of the 
font. calibre can now do this for all embedded fonts during a conversion. Turn 
it on via the 'Subset all embedded fonts' option under the Look & Feel section 
of the conversion dialog. calibre can subset both TrueType and OpenType fonts. 
Note that this code is very new and likely has bugs, so please check the output 
if you turn on subsetting. The conversion log will have info about the 
subsetting operations.
    EPUB Input: Try to workaround EPUBs that have missing or damaged ZIP 
central directories. calibre should now be able to read/convert such an EPUB 
file, provided it does not suffer from further corruption.
    Allow using identifiers in save to disk templates.

    Closes tickets: 1074623
    calibredb: Add an option to not notify the GUI
    Catalogs: Fix long tags causing catalog generation to fail on windows. Add 
the ability to cross-reference authors, i.e. to relist the authors for a book 
with multiple authors separately.

    Closes tickets: 1074931
    Edit metadata dialog: Add a clear tags button to remove all tags with a 
single click
    Add search to the font family chooser dialog

reason only manifested in 0.9.5.

    Closes tickets: 1075782
    Get Books: Fix Amazon stores, Google Books store and

being on device even if the Kobo has not yet indexed them. Also some 
performance improvements.

    EPUB Output: Remove duplicate id and name attributes to eliminate pointless

Release: 0.9.5 [02 Nov, 2012]
New Features

    Font embedding: Add support for the CSS 3 Fonts module, which means you can 
embed font families that have more that the usual four faces, with the full set 
of font-stretch and font-weight variations. Of course, whether the fonts 
actually show up on a reader will depend on the readers' support for CSS 3.
    Sharing by email: Allow specifying an 'alias' or friendly name by which to 
identify each email recipient.

    Closes tickets: 1069076
    Embedding fonts: Allow adding ttf/otf font files to calibre directly to be 
used for embedding. That way the fonts do not have to be installed system wide. 
You can add a font to calibre via the 'Add fonts' button in the font chooser 
dialog for embedding fonts.
    E-book viewer: Add the ability to rotate images to the popup image viewer.

using calibre libraries on some networked filesystems.

Release: 0.9.4 [26 Oct, 2012]
New Features

    Conversion: Add an option to embed a font family into the book.

    The embedded font is used as the base font for all text that does not 
specify its own font family in the input document. Works only with output 
formats that support font embedding, principally EPUB/AZW3. Option is found 
under Look & Feel in the conversion dialog. You can ensure that the font is 
used for all text, regardless of the input document's styles by filtering out 
font family styles via the Filter Style Information option in the Conversion 
    When changing the title/author of a book, use hard links instead of copying 
the books' files, for a large speedup. Only works on filesystems that support 
    Linux installer: Resume interrupted downloads and verify the SHA-512 
signature of the downloaded file before installing it.

Bug Fixes

    Windows: Check if any of the files of a book are in use before changing the 
title/author, this prevents the creation of duplicate files if one of the files 
is open in another program
