tI have finished the jump keeper feature. The jump keeper menu can be invoked by "B" key. Also you can jump between current page and previous page with "Alt + Back" combo.

The jump keeper logs your every jump (page forwards and backwards are not logged) with two exceptions:
1. current viewing page, if logged, will be deleted from the history
2. every page will show up only once in the jump history. For instance, if you do following jumpings:
page 10 -> page 20 -> page 10 -> page 20
. The jump keeper menu will only show one entries: page 10

I use this strategy because I think it conforms better to my reading habits with real paper books. Not sure this is a good design though. Any improvement suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Actually, this feature is not entirely finished yet because I did not add code to save the jump history for every book you read. So after kindlepdfviewer exits, the history will gone. I prefer to use Serialization approach to save settings (includes history) but current implementation uses sqlite3 as I pointed out in previous post. I am still waiting for feedbacks on this suggesions.

A bug fix from dpavlin is pulled into this version. Now K3 can correctly use volume key to adjust gamma when reading.

I also did a little improvement for input box, it won't flash when deleting characters now.

Next, I think it's better to add a help menu which displays all the shorcuts. There are too many shortcuts now
