Well, that went well! Gone are the small letters in a new chapter and overall the device seems a bit snappier. I can't for the life of me imagine why this update hasn't been pushed out yet.

The only change I noticed with 2.3.2 was that the new chapter-fontsize-bug had gone, no new bugs.

Hope that helps.
Xor_, thank you very much!!!

I will try in a couple of weeks becouse I out of my home without a pc (only kobo and a tablet...). When I can back I'll do....

Again thank you!!!

Perhaps they are testing it, for a change.

I have firmware version 2.3.1 (r45611, 12/7/12)

I haven't done anything with my Kobo Glo since I got it.

Are there any 'compelling' reasons why I should get the newer firmware?

Unless you are running into one of the bugs and it's driving you nuts, then no there is no reason to jump to 2.3.2.

On my GLO, fw 2.3.1 I had the new chatpter tiny font bug, so I went to 2.3.2, the font bug was cured, but I realised shortly that new books added to the device (micro sdcard) did not show their series info, despite having done the modifications in calibre referred to in this thread: http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=193184

So reluctantly, and I hope, temporarily, I have gone back to 2.3.1 :-(

Maybe I didn't make it clear, the books loaded before upgrading to 2.3.2 showed the series info properly on 2.3.2, but the books loaded after the upgrade did not show the info.

Very weird. Are you sure you have the series information in the right place for the books you loaded after you upgraded to 2.3.2?

There is no difference in how 2.3.1 and 2.3.2 handle the series information. Or how calibre handles these firmware versions. But, calibre can't set the series information as it puts the books on the device, you have to reconnected to calibre after the device processes the books. Did you do this?

I have a Touch (v2.1.5) and a few series in my calibre library with the right series info entered in the proper metadata fields. The books are already loaded on the touch. What do I need to do to get series info into the touch?

Thanks,

V

You have to upgrade your Touch to at least firmware 2.2.0. Otherwise, you use a metadata plugboard to put the series info into the title and put the books on the device again.
