From time to time a new version of a program appears - such as Fbreader or Coolreader or a Linx browser. All the existing features have been discovered and discussed to death.
PocketBook company has released SDK for the oldest models - 301 and 360, as well as a theme builder and dictionary converter. They also organized programming competition for games and utilities for 301 and 360 and another sponsored competition for the best theme (this is how we got theme cleanlook, sheeps, sherlock and others). I am not aware of any of those (SDK and competitions) for the new models. It seems that once they were big enough and successfull they decided that they do not need to build AND maintain strong community arround the brand. It is sad, because the support and community was what made PocketBook such a great devices.
Here is the place where I saw any interesting activity concerning new models, long after the activity ceased here:
The forum is in Russian. Even PocketBook CEO used to discuss there under the nick "The Old Man". You can follow the forum comfortably using translate.google.com
