This update for calibre provides version 2.81.0 and fixes the following issues:
- New Features

get the metadata. Should help with the recent CAPTCHA problems when downloading metadata from amazon.

to the word can be made easily.
+ Edit Book: Saved searched Dialog: Allow re-arranging the saved searches using drag and drop.

websites they get data from often change.

+ Linux installer: Check that the umask is suitable before running the installer. Should fix breakage on systems where
users have changed the user umask but neglected to also alter it for sudo.

present by right clicking the Remove books button.
+ Add support for sideloading of KFX files created with the third-party KFX calibre plugin.
+ Edit book: Allow drag and drop of image files, stylesheets and html files into the editor to insert the appropriate
and tags and add the files to the book automatically.
