The weekly update for calibre has just been posted, and it adds support for some of the Kobo Touch eReader’s new features.

Two weeks ago Kobo updated the Kobo PC app and the Kobo Touch eReader with new annotation abilities. Users can now add typed notes, translate a word or phrase, or look up all the notes attached to an eBook.

And now Kobo Touch owners will be able to protect their notes with calibre. Alongside the usual tweaks and bug fixes, today’s update will enable calibre to backup the notes and annotations saved on your Kobo Touch.

Calibre is the leading eBook and eReader management tool. It supports conversion from and to a wide variety of eBook formats. It will also assist you in organizing your eBook library and transferring your eBooks to your eReader (almost all are supported).
