Hmmm. Support for High Sierra and lower has been dropped. Not a smart move at this time.

For those who need something like this Calibre is one of the most amazing free applications available for macOS. The developer has my deepest gratitude. Yes, it's not very pretty - but I could not care less about that in the light of all its features and capabilities. And those who complain that the latest version of Calibre (from 2019) does not work anymore with an older version of macOS (from 2017) have actually no real reason to complain as an older version of Calibre (3.48) that works perfectly fine with older macOS versions is still available for download on the developer's website. It's free - please don't forget that!

What's the problem in using an older version of Calibre (3.48 is still available for download) when using an older version of macOS?

is anyone else having trouble mounting the DMG file and crashing your system? Tried it from the desktop and from within the download folder and when the mounting process gets to "Attaching" my system crashes and reboots.

Yes, it occurred with version 4.0.0, so I waited for a next update, but now 4.1.0 still gives that very hard crash...

I found that using the DVD burning app Burn, I can activate and mount the DMG file without issues. A workaround.

Unfortunately, I was not able to reproduce this so can't provide any suggestions. Just FYI, that this does not happen to everyone. You may try Miner's suggestion

Amazing app. It keeps my +30000 books well sorted. It works smoothly, even on my up-to-date old Mac-mini 2012

Yep. This app is dead to me now. I can't see why the developer did this other than they dumped their older system and their shiny new mac only runs 10.14. And they didn't care that they were leaving out most of their user base.

Calibre is...awesome. But it leaves you wanting something a bit cleaner. It is bloated, hopefully the devs clean it up.

just because the file size is large doesn't mean it's bloated - this app opens things CORRECTLY in a way that Apple's iBooks just can't compete with

@scion777 I think what ben-marko was referring to wasn't the file size of the app but rather the convoluted UI of calibre. and I have to agree with him. It's still a great app and open source. recommended but could use some UI cleanup.
