Is this thing finally able to intelligently parse out PDFs?

Last time I tried (0.7.x?), I ended up with things such as author, ISBN, publisher and other random pieces of information in the title field for 95%+ of the files I gave it, making the whole thing rather pointless. Very disappointing--I thought I'd be able to save myself tons of manual data entry.

Not a single reply?

What's everybody using then? Ideally, I just want to point some app at a big pile of PDFs, and have it intelligently extract the ISBN, and from that, look up metadata such as author, publisher, category tags and the like in a manner similar to CDDB. Maybe I'm misremembering--I thought that was one thing Calibre was supposed to be able to do. If that's the case, then it can't even get the basics rights...
