promotion / copyvio
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?--220.127.116.11 (talk) 16:26, 12 December 2011 (UTC)
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)"
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.
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. 18.104.22.168 (talk) 22:42, 10 March 2014 (UTC)
'phone home' reference doesn't match text.
'This phone home behavior cannot be disabled, per Kovid Goyal's request.' 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.)
