Dedrm 6.8

Anyone using DeDRM 6.8.0 with Calibre 5.2.0? Alf says it only works with 4.23.0, but it was working for me in Calibre 5.1.0 and I've got a notice to update Calibre. Use the portable version to add DRMed eBooks to your library and the 6.8.0 version of DeDRM will work with the 4.23 portable version. Unless you plan to use the new features of calibre 5 right away (mainly annotations in the reader) an even simpler solution is to uninstall calibre 5 and re-install calibre 4.23 for now. If you are already using 6.8.0 you only need this update if you use Kindle for Mac under Mac OS X Big Sur. DeDRMtools6.8.1.zip 461 KB. Source code (zip) Source code. This release DOES NOT work with calibre 5.0. Stick with calibre 4.23 for now if you need DRM removal. This release adds full support for the new.kinf2018 key files and the nw KFX encryption.

I just upgraded my calibre to 5.0 (or later), but I found that DeDRM plugin doesn't work anymore. It doesn't show up in the Plugins list after update from V4.x nor is it possible to installing the DeDRM plugin to Calibre. When I tried to load the plugin, I received a SyntaxError: invalid syntax (calibre_plugins.dedrm.init, line 168). What happened? Doesn't the DeDRM plugin not work on Calibre 5.X?

On 25 September, 2020, Calibre released a new version 5.0.1. Since then, a lot of people reported that the DeDRM plugin cannot be installed to Calibre 5.0 or later version. The reason why the DeDRM plugin (including some other plugins) doesn't work is that Calibre 5.x has moved to using Python 3 because Python 2 has been end-of-lifed this year, while the DeDRM plugin is still using Python 2 which is not compatible with the latest version of Calibre.
