promotion / copyvio[edit]

I've removed a significant amount of information copy/pasted from http://calibre-ebook.com/about as a WP:COPYVIO. It was also highly promotional. Please don't restore it. Toddst1 (talk) 14:30, 5 November 2011 (UTC)

To convert external content sources calibre supports the RSS-Feedreader protocol What kind of protocol is that? What's the advantage of using that protocol over just reading a feed over HTTP?--88.73.15.93 (talk) 16:26, 12 December 2011 (UTC)

Version list[edit]

It would be useful to have a version list, clarifying what versions are compatible with what operating systems (e.g., it is impossible to find what is the latest Calibre version compatible with OSX Leopard, non-intel, also on the Calibre website). Milligen (talk) 14:14, 29 December 2011 (UTC)

"Python and C (Qt)"[edit]

First of all there is no such thing as a Qt app written in C; the library itself is C++. I am looking through the git repo and so far I don't see any C code. Lots and lots of Python. A small amount of C++. But no C.

OK, now I've run a script:

  19,103 lines of .c code in 36 files.
  45,267 lines of .cpp code in 85 files.
  389,090 lines of .py code in 1231 files.

A large amount of the .c and .cpp files seem to be external libraries packaged together with the code (examples: unrar, LZX codec, qtcurve).

To call it a "Python and C" project still sounds a bit odd.

Content server[edit]

Why is there no mention at all of the Calibre content server? I consider the OPDS client built into calibre to be one of its primary features. There's also no mention of wireless syncing, though this is a more recent addition. 208.127.80.202 (talk) 22:42, 10 March 2014 (UTC)

'phone home' reference doesn't match text.[edit]

'This phone home behavior cannot be disabled, per Kovid Goyal's request.[7]' Perhaps the link has changed, but the link not only does not indicate any such request, the no was to moving an option into a separate preferences / update area. So, I don't understand how this sentence is warranted or authoritated, nor the particular reference given. Not to say the sentence is wrong, merely 'unproven', as presented. (But would have liked to see a 'good' reference, as the inability to turn off updating and any justification for such would be interesting to read.)
