Reviewing 2.62.0 (Jul 17, 2016)
Calibre (and its plugin contributors) have managed to fix the drm issues I had with earlier versions of this program. That alone gives it a 5 in my books, but I will subtract a star for the same reason most of the others have - way too many incremental updates.
I mostly use the program for organizing & managing my library while dedicated readers and tablets are used to actually read them. For those tasks I use them for this program is the best out there with no noticed bugs.

Updated way too much? Seriously?? You aren't *required* to update, so what's the big deal? I applaud the developers for their weekly enhancement and bug-fix releases, and have donated to this great app.

The best EBook organizer, non of the other come even close.
5* if I could give it 10* I would, thank you for a great program, and thank you for taking the time to care about updating it.
Some people whine when there is no updates, and they whine when there is updates, I guess some people think the meaning of life is whining, tools you can never please, sadly enough, they think they are the one single point the world is revolving around.
Really nice topic for me.
