@apprenticeharper apprenticeharper released this Jun 18, 2020

This release adds full support for the new .kinf2018 key files and the nw KFX encryption. Many thanks to Apprentice Sakuya for their work on this.

This means that this release now works with the latest (2.8) version of Kindle for PC and Kindle for Mac.

A script to remove DRM from B&N PDFs has been included but not integrated into the plugin, nor tested.

The key needed to decrypt the values in the .kinf2018 file has changed over the .kinf2011 file. This version, although it can now find the .kinf2018 file on PC, cannot decode it after all.

The release also includes improved cleaning of book name when converting book name to a file name.

Another new folder structure, some minor tweaks to the scripts for unusual events, and hopefully a 64-bit Mac OS application that now works from the release download, and doesn't need an executable bit setting, and doesn't have an unnecessary splash screen. I can't do anything about it being unsigned. Apple don't allow anonymous signing, unsurprisingly. :)
