- Another spec file fix (requirement should have been libicu rather
  than icu)
- Now all requirements noted on the calibre home page should be
  matched. As a consequence, calibre will only install on
  openSUSEFactory, since it requires libicu >= 4.4.0. That
  requirement cannot be matched on 11.3, since OpenOffice and
  others require libicu 4.2.x

- reformatted complete calibre.changes file:
  openSUSE:Factory requires a linewidth < 70
  (refer to the dashed lines for linewidth) 

Thu Jan 13 09:35:04 UTC 2011 -

- removed Require: python-django-tagging since it is no longer
  needed (searched the calibre sources for "tagging" and "django")

- added packages that are only required, to BuildRequires, too,

  Requires should always be a subset of BuildRequires. If there
  are packages that are only Required 
  * there is no way to check whether these packages are available
    in the given repositories unless you install the package (the
    build environment only contains packages from the given
    repositories and the project 
  * the project's repository might become inconsistent, because
    Required packages do not block a build. So a package might get
    published, although a Required package does not build

     the table of matching books sortable

  New Features
    * Option for more aggressive duplicates detection when adding
       Closes tickets: 5016
      "There is now an option in Preferences->Add/Save that will
       cause calibre to try to detect duplicates based on title
       and author similarity. If a duplicate is found, calibre
       will automatically merge files intot he existing entry,
       instead of creating a new one."
    * Support for setting metadata in Topaz files and getting pdf
      anntations from a Kindle
    * ODT Input: Fix handling of mixed ordered and un-ordered
    * Support for the Samsung Moment

    * Improved iRex DR800 support
      Closes tickets: 5082
    * When creating ZIP/EPUB files encode all file names in UTF-8
      and set the UTF-8 bit marker. When extracting from a
      ZIP/EPUB file, if the UTF-8 bit marker is not set, still
      assume that the file name is encoded in UTF-8. If UTF-8
      decoding fails try to detect character encoding using
      chardet. This is because  most ZIP/EPUB files calibre comes
      across seem to be utf-8  encoded.
