software update

On November 15, 2007, Michael (for Bookeen) posted on Bookeen's oficial blog: "We will add new levels of zooming in next software release."

It appears there will be another software update after 1.0. Hopefully it will resolve the known bugs.

Couldn't where else I could state it, and based only on reading (no eink in Australia yet).

Bookshelves, organising collections is much needed.

Second, does anyone know how cybook currently handles PDF, I worry about how reflow sometimes effects PDF.

It does not reflow by itself. I think Mobipocket Reader can reflow but since I do not use Windows I have not tested this. I have one pdf (manual for Iriver iHP 120) that reboots the Cybook when navigating in it so the reader is probably not overly stable. It is probably the first version with a lot of bugs.

No machine with a 6" screen handles A4 PDFs at all well. There's just no way to sensibly view an A4 document on a screen with 1/6th the area of A4. PDF was never intended to be an eBook format, and it's pretty much the worst possible format choice for an eBook.

Yes, I have a iHP120. I remember it was very expensive when I bought it. I have not tested rockbox on it. I bought it for ogg support and for the recording possibility. Nowadays I only use it to record panels at science fiction conventions. The microphone in it works reasonable well for that.

I agree, and reflow of PDF should be present, but as a choice. It can make some PDF's impossible to read well. An A5 version I made testing with mobipocket on my computer reflowed unnecessarily. I hope Cybook supports both forms.

PS
I was thinking of PDFs designed for the smaller size rather than A4. For novels reflow is easy and best, but many non-fiction works layout can be crucial and pdf gives fine control over this.

I am looking at PDF stylesheets, conversions from XML to PDF made when desired to form-fit different uses. Ie condensed print versions for printing, condensed and imposed pages for booklet printing, various classes of layout based on different readers etc.,.

Hence the choice of reflowing PDF or keeping it virginal are an important feature, in terms of reader's future functionality is important. Mobipocket for instance reflowed several PDFs I had made for the computer in A5 when there was amble space to display it intacto.

Not to my knowledge. MP3s are what it handles at this point.
