AZW3 Support

When will Alfa support AZW3. I know it is difficult to keep up to date with new formats, but AZW3 has been out a while and is the common format for Kindle readers (the most popular ereader on the market). My Alfa library of 2,800+ books is all azw3 format, but he books don't open properly in azw3 book reader and I don't know if I am missing other functions with unsupported format.

Hi, Alfa supports AZW3 for reading metadata, but it's impossible to read AZW3 texts outside Kindle because its an encrypted Amazon's format

My understanding is you need AZW3 format to convert all epub features. I used calibre to convert all my drm free epub to azw3 format. Calibre can read the azw3 files, but Alfa imbedded book reader "open book file feature" shows a lot of encoding error text. But yes, my collection does seem to have to problems with the metadata, but I often open the book file to make sure the metadata belongs to the right book.
