Updating to Calibre 5.0

Be aware that updating to Calibre 5.0 also includes migration from a python2 to python3 code base.

This may break Calibre plugins in the process, like deDRM, so if you rely on any Calibre plugins it may be prudent to add calibre to ignore list in pacman.conf, at least until you can confirm your plugins indeed work with Calibre 5.0.

DeDRM is currently being worked on, but there will be some plugins that won’t be ported.


FanFicFare, at least, still seems to be working. Don’t know about any others, though, as that’s the only one I use.

Unofficial list of plugins and their python3 port status.


Cool, looks like a fair number have made a start. Thanks.
