Kobo Touch Firmware 1.9.9

I just updated my Kobo Touch to 1.9.9
It looks the same as 1.9.8 though.

Did anyone else get this?

I guess there was some problem with 1.9.8 and this just contains a fix of some sort.

Hi everyone,

We unfortunately found an issue with the 1.9.8 release that required an urgent fix. Apologies for the inconvenience. We would have released the fix with the same version number, but we think a significant amount of people had already installed 1.9.8, therefore we had to increment to trigger the upgrade.

Thanks!
Sameer.

Ah ok, I figured it was going to be something like that.
Thanks for the heads up!

I can confirm that the footnote/endnote bug for sideloaded ePubs has not been fixed. Disappointing, but perhaps they weren't aware of the bug when 1.9.9 was compiled.

Does that mean that everyone who installed 1.9.8 should urgently update to 1.9.9?

I have updated to 1.9.9. Can't see any difference so far. Have any of the following issues with 1.9.8 been fixed:
  • Home screen shows only books on SD card;
  • Device spontaneously turns itself on;
  • Pause when tapping after 6 pages or so (skips two pages after second tap).
Love my Kobo Touch, but these (particularly the first two) bugs are frustrating.

Not fixed. Apparently to be fixed in the next release.

Was supposed to be fixed in 1.9.7. Is it still happening to your Touch?

Has not happened with my Touch since 1.9.7.
