4. Choose your deployment method:

choco upgrade calibre -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'" [other options]

See options you can pass to upgrade.

See best practices for scripting.

Add this to a PowerShell script or use a Batch script with tools and in places where you are calling directly to Chocolatey. If you are integrating, keep in mind enhanced exit codes.

If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:

choco upgrade calibre -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'"

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"
$validExitCodes = @(0, 1605, 1614, 1641, 3010)
if ($validExitCodes -contains $exitCode) {
  Exit 0

    • New: Edit metadata dialog: Allow turning off the cover size displayed in the bottom right corner of the cover by right clicking the cover and choosing 'Hide cover size'. It can be restored the same way.

    • Fixed: Fix a few remaining situations that could cause formats column to show an error message about SHLock
    • Fixed: Make deleting books to recycle bin more robust. Ensure that the temporary directory created during the move to recycle bin process is not left behind in case of errors.
    • Fixed: Windows: Check if the books' files are in use before deleting
    • Fixed: Fix custom device driver swap main and card option not working. Also fix swapping not happening for a few devices on linux
    • Fixed: Edit metadata dialog: The Edit metadata dialog currently limits its max size based on the geometry of the smallest attached screen. Change that to use the geometry of the screen on which it will be shown.
    • Fixed: HTMLZ Output: Fix style tag placed inside body tag instead of head tag.

(the title or author had to be between 31 and 35 characters long and the book entry had to have been created by a pre 1.x version of calibre). You can check if your library has any such duplicates and remove them, by using the Check Library tool (Right click the calibre button on the toolbar and select Library Maintenance - Check Library).
