Before taking the plunge and installing the new firmware, I'd like to know a few things about the included software.

At the moment, the OLD PDF-Reader is my standard application for reading epubs. The reason is that FB-Reader is a total mess for epubs, ignoring nearly all the formatting, and CoolReader, while being quite nice in many respects, has a few deal-breaking flaws, the worst of them probably the handling of <br /> in centered paragraphs and headings and the inability to display embedded fonts.

The beta of the new PDF-Reader is very nice for PDFs (the two-point zoom is wonderful for reading PDFs on a small display!), but I can't set it to full-screen mode. There are also quite a few tools missing when reading epubs, compared to the old version, most notably "Mark" and "Copy".

So as things are, I am very happy with my i62HD using the old PDF-Reader. From this thread, I gather that the new one is the standard version now. Is the old one still included? Or has the new one been improved, enabling full-screen mode and adding the missing tools? Or has CoolReader been improved in its handlng of <br /> and the display of embedded fonts?

If not, I'll rather stick with the old firmware.
