The "Currently reading" section works fine with books on SD card, that's really great. That was the biggest issue I had with the Frontlight so far.
Second, the often noticed "no response on page change" is fixed according to the "what's new" file, no idea if it is really gone, but I havn't noticed any of these yet.
With this new firmware and the possibility to create new dictionaries based on dictcc (see e.g. here
for a German thread on how to get a really great English-German dictionary on the Bookeen) the Odyssey now really is a great reader!
