Booktype 1.6.1 is out today with some improvements to the history function that will help you see the progress of your book cover. As well, now book owners and administrators have the ability to delete books and chapters. Special thanks to our Booktype community, we have also included the new French localization in this upgrade!

Booktype is supported on Unix systems like Debian, Ubuntu, CentOS and also on an OSX server. You'll need 3GB Ram and 1Ghz processor as a minimum hardware set-up.

In the last release of Booktype, we introduced the cover manager functionality where you can upload, manage and assign covers to your books. You can also upload multiple covers for each book and assign different covers for use in different formats (epub, print etc.)

In Booktype 1.6.1 we have included a feed of cover management activity to the history. So now you can see who and what updates have been occurring much more easily.
