New firmware for PB touch 622

CAREFUL - RELEASE CANDIDATE ONLY

Just out from the German Forum, it is here:
http://download.pocketbook-int.com/f...0.288_user.zip
Good luck - it looks like Troll had a go already, his comments here

Don't be overdramatic. It is working very well, some minor bugs appeared so far, but nothing that is severely messed up. On the plus side: Browser can handle special signs like "$,&,%,§".
The UI made a huge leap towards the positive and also some improvements in some other smaller parts.

Everbody can download this version.You dont have to be a member of the forum.Not every owner of a PB 622 is geeky.Google this: pocketbook 622 new firmware.I know about the discussion in the german forum.You make a good job.Thanks for that,but some people could misunderstand this link.

Google this: pocketbook 622 new firmware.
Yes, but I don't see the problem. This FW is nearly good for release, there are some minor bugs but you have to search them, and there is no risk of doing any damage to your device.
If this happened to be an alpha- or beta-release I'd full agree with you, but with this...

BTW, this FW is only available here and in the german section, and not from PB homepage, so I expect everybody here to know what he is doing.

I updated my PocketBook Touch as soon as the RC firmware became available, and did not run into any problems since then except for a very minor bug in the Sudoku application. For the rest, only improvements!

The nature of a Release Candidate is that the maker of the software thinks this version is good enough for final release, but still wants to do some final testing. If no shocking issues come up PocketBook might well decide to promote this version 'as is' to be the final release. Or they might decide to fix some of these minor bugs that were found first, and perhaps do another RC. But in the end, the final release will hardly be different from the current RC. I don't think there is any risk in doing the upgrade now.

There are a few things to remember, though: the update will clear your history of read books on the Home page (although your reading progress will be kept for each book), and any custom themes you installed won't work anymore. These are probably not bugs, but just things that are that way, which means that the same thing will happen if you wait until the final release.

And if you really want to you can always re-install the 3.2 firmware.

Sure it is an official Firmwareversion. It is available from the official pocketbook downloadservers, and its from the official pocketbook developers.

But it is 'only' a release candidate, the probability to find some bugs is a bit higher as in the normal release.

When you've problems with it, you could also downgrade again to the last official version - so, where is the Problem?

New RC for PB 622 out, only major change I found so far is to call up the dictionary with a long touch on the word and then select dictionary in the top row. Works flawless in fbreader, in Adobe you have to select the word again because it jumps to the beginning of the line.

If this update happens to be nearly similar for the PRO series it would make an already good reader fantastic

For the 622 owners who already dared to try the new FW SIRSTEINER created a new Theme

I have some questions.
Some old PB 622 manuals I googled before the purchase mention "screen orientation rotate" gesture. But the manual I got with my Touch v3.2 does not and the gesture doesn't work on it as well.
Was it present in previous version? If yes, why has it been removed?
Does PB plan to restore it in new firmware?
Best regards.
