Description (last modified by jg) (diff)
Evince supports djvu, among other formats; this was removed from xbook, presumably to keep it small, but it would be very useful. among other things, it will let people access much smaller scan-sets of printed texts.
A brief email thread follows. Luke Hutchison is at Google this summer working on books, and trying to help out with accessing and reading feeds of books and metadata; some collections are primarily in djvu.

PS anyone know why xbook doesn't support djvu-libre, when evince does? A lot of public domain scanned books are available in deja vu format.
Evince needs to be compiled with dejavu support. I think it's only that.
