I just turned on my Touch, and it did a software update. Once finished it informed me that the version was 1.9.6 (July 13, 2011) but i had already installed 1.9.6 when it first came out.

What am I missing?

I suppose it's too late to say that I liked having the white/black surrounding the cover image to distinguish Sleep from Power Off?

Got it installed. Seems to have messed up the font sizing in a book that I was currently reading. Font sizes won't change (they would before). Interesting.

The 1.9.7 sleep and power-off message boxes have different backgrounds. Sleep is white and power-off is black.

I've seen folks in the Beta group mention this. There's a fix I believe. I'll wait for the formal response from someone.

The bug where side loaded epubs deleted from the SD card via the K.T. are actually still on the SD card is not fixed. A paper clip reset simply brings them back to KT.
