Thanks for your suggestion. I have fixed this in my repo, waiting for hawhill to merge the change. I haven't packed a new version for this fix yet, because I am working on some other features ;-P Currently, you will have to manually press "HOME" key every time you exit the kindlepdfviewer to do a refresh.

second that.

How about using the native dbus interface to do the major degree rotate? like:
Code:
lipc-send-event -r 3 com.lab126.hal orientationRight &
So we can not only rotate in mupdf, but also in filechooser and other menus. Also, when user quit kindlepdfviwer, the rotation state is kept in native system.

Cool, hardware hacker. :-)

So are they in the kindle bookshelf. But if you move the cursor to the article, the file's name is shown on two lines. If the name is still too long to fit on two lines, then some part of the file name is replaced by dots, but the last 8 characters are still shown, which I consider to be very important.
Because sometimes the name is the same but the year could be different (as papers may have several revisions)
OK, I know what you mean. I haven't noticed that the native bookshelf has this feature. ;-P

Everything works well, not a glitch.
Many thanks for your testing work!

Specifically related to the table of contents.
Wow, I have just started working on some thing similar! What I want to add is a "jump stack", which records your every jump motions, so you can fireup a "jump stack" menu and choose which page you want to jump back (maybe we can even adds notes to these jump points).

Every line both in the file manager and in the TOC overview is 'numbered' by letters, so that pressing a certain letter you can directly start a file or go to some chapter from the TOC without the need to first select that line by joystick.
Obviously, it is of great value for non-touch kindles.
Yes, Duokan has done a great job, except closing their sources.

OK, this feature is not difficult to add. Now we have a long TODO list:

Good luck to your work then, looking forward to your return.
