Bug Fixes

    * Fix regression that broke catalog generation from the Graphical User Interface in 0.6.41

Release: 0.6.41 [19 Feb, 2010]
New Features

    * Make calibre timezone aware. This required lots of internal changes, so I may have broken something

      Closes tickets: 4887 [External link]

This ppa has 0.6.35

If you submit a bug stating what issues the new version solves it may get added faster if the security flaws it solves are substantial.
