Lightbulb Let's compare the different firmware versions

I would like to compare the fixes and "brakes" of each version of the firmware (starting from build 538) and compile them in a table, easy to read. Since I don't have a Cybook, I would like users to post here, in list form, the pros and cons of each version they experienced.

I think this could be useful for everyone, as I noticed that people are undecided about which version should they upgrade (or roll back) to.

Collected information so far:

-> 538
+ ...
+ ...
- ...

-> 674
+ Page turn button more responsive

-> 685
+ Event buffer (slicker lookup times, etc)
+ Perfect bookmark memory
+ Perfect memory of last page read
- Reduced battery life (tests are confirming this)
- Worse PDF support (compared to 674, how about 538?)
- Page turn button less responsive
