raque writes: "For 22 years Tidbits has served the community of Apple users from fanboys to professionals. Tidbits publisher Adam Engst discusses how undocumented changes to how Pages 4.3 handles the epub format nearly sank his latest ebook on iTunes 11.

From a marketing point of view not admitting to mistakes and issues may make sense, but it creates havoc for those who's livelihoods depend on software doing what is supposed to do, and what it did last time.
