It may only have been three weeks since last had my own internet connection but boy, is it good to be back! Of course the world of ePub caught fire right when I was not been able to report on it.
These past weeks has seen the introduction of a new ePub converter from BookGlutton, the IDPF Digital Book 2008 conference and release of Adobe Digital Editions 1.5, which from the reports has marked improvements, Mac OSX support and has been localised into French and German.
There’s more news of publishers wanting to release their content in the ePub format (let’s see if it really happens) and we are now seeing dedicated eBook readers released on a regular basis. There’s also another eBook reader available for the iPhone.
At Digital Book 2008, Sony demonstrated working ePub books on their PRS-505 and it seems that Mobipocket Desktop 6.2 handles ePub files – rumour has it that the next version will also create ePub files!
ePubBooks.com is here to bring together all and any news related to ePub and eBooks, although some of you may have read this news elsewhere, I will still be writing several articles to cover all the latest happenings. Make sure you check back regular.
Hopefully by the end of the week I will have the site fully up-to-date.
