It's worth noting that it seems pretty much the same as the Aura 2.9.0 firmware, although I haven't had much time to play with it yet. For those unfamiliar, this release also:

- Brings the "Back" button back to the bottom toolbar
- Removes the display of stats from side-loaded kepubs. The stats still seem to be calculated as side-loaded kepubs still show a time remaining on the home screen.
- Fixes problems with some side-loaded fonts that would create page breaks at inappropriate line breaks.
- Adds a new game, "Unblock It" which is horrible of them because I have to finish games like this.
- Folds the link for the table of contents into a new page/chapter scrubber. I don't mind it, but it would be nice if it simply listed the current and total chapters somewhere in the scrubber pop-up.

There's actually lots of little changes (way more than mentioned here) and if you're upgrading from 2.6.1 it's practically a new device. Once I have more time I'll go digging deeper. I was using 2.9.0 on my Glo for a while and I felt it was a very solid firmware; I've been very happy with things and I assume this will continue with 2.10.0.
