Hello @jpbn
I would like to suggest that it is pointless asking for packages updates in this forum, since many package maintainers aren’t on this forum. It is better to file a bug.
However anyta (the upstream release monitor) has already automatically notified the maintainer that there is a new version available. So we should simply wait. As you may already know, a lot of package maintainers are volunteers that do their work in their free time.

In addition, what is that link to launchpad?
Launchpad is the bugtracker used by Ubuntu folks, isn’t it? Fedora makes use of bugzilla.

Thanks anyta :wink: Launchpad link is just a comment I found when search for solution.

Did Not mean to do any harm.

Hey @jpbn
Calibre 4.3 is now in the updates-testing repository (at least for Fedora 31).

If you want to give it a try, you can run this command:
sudo dnf upgrade --enablerepo=updates-testing calibre

If it works, you could contribute giving it a feedback, in that way it will reach the stable repository faster.
In order to learn more how updates work in Fedora, and how you can contribute in testing upcoming packages updates, look at this post:
