The development cycle for Calibre2opds 3.5 is starting up.
Initial ideas for inclusion are:
- Enhance the generation process to make it more intelligent so that it only attempts to generate catalog pages that have actually changed since the last run. This would provide significant run time performance gains of the current approach of generating all possible pages to a temporary area and then after the generation only copying changed files to the final catalog location.
- Allow for the use of Calibre Custom Column field types to be used in search and filter expressions.
If you have some other feature that you would like to be considered for inclusion then please raise it as a feature request on the Calibre2opds Issue register.
One other change that will also be happening as part of the development of this release is moving the source and version control to an alternative service (probably gitHub). Google have announced that the GoogleCode service we currently use will be closing down later this year and so projects need to migrate off it.
It has been decided that it is time to move the 3.4 release into a ‘final’ state. There have been no significant bug reports for a while now, so giving it a ‘final’ label may encourage those who do not like to run software labelled as ‘beta’ the confidence to move to this release. The 3.4 release has had lots of bug fixes since the 3.3 release as well as ton of new features.
