The latest version of Calibre is 5.21. Why is it then the case that Calibre in the official repo is stuck on version 4.23?
4.23 that’s offered in Fedora:
calibre | Package Info | koji
5.21 is the latest:
Releases · kovidgoyal/calibre · GitHub
Calibre 4.23 was released in Aug 21, 2020. 5.0.0 was released in Sep 25, 2020.
I don’t understand why they haven’t updated Calibre during all this time?

I’ve used Calibre a lot install it from flatpak
flatpak list | grep calibre
calibre com.calibre_ebook.calibre 5.21.0 stable system
How to install it:
flatpak install com.calibre_ebook.calibre
Hmm, too bad… Seems like they aren’t able to build its dependencies…
Other than that it seems to just be spam from the upstream project about new versions.
But thanks anyways daddy, I hope they manage to sort it out. I prefer when Fedora is more up-to-date.
Ah, interesting. I haven’t used Flatpak before. I’m trying to search for it, but that doesn’t return any results:
$ flatpak search calibre
No matches found
I wonder who’s the one that publishes that package, if it’s the project owner or just some random person?

Is from the official calibre owner just add flathub repo is where app. Live
flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists flathub https://flathub.org/repo/flathub.flatpakrepo
And try to install again or search…
Thanks daddy! Didn’t know about Flathub. Looks like a nice package repository. I will try that out…!
Daddy I have now tried it. And. It. Worked. Good that I don’t need to trust Fedora anymore with compiling dependencies for packages and reading Bugzilla about non-existing progress. This is
I’m not sure the intention is here, but could you please not refer to others on the forum as “Daddy”? It’s quite unusual and can have negative meanings in many cultures/languages. Thanks
