kaikara, can you confirm whether or not the new firmware properly updates the current chapter in the Table of Contents (i.e. it marks the current chapter as the currently open chapter)?
I know the last beta version we had did not so I would be surprised if it did now.

Maybe we should do a poll: Who has turned the WiFi off to make sure they don't get the update, and who is checking every five minutes hoping they do get it.

Heh, yeah I hear you, but I just can't resist a new firmware and am willing to accept the risk of trying it out.

Is this upgrade for the Kobo Touch, or just the Glo?

It should be for both. The application side of the firmware is identical between the Glo, Touch and Mini. The boot image and maybe the kernal are different. So far, Kobo have updated all three devices at the same time. But, they do stagger the rollot-out around the world.

Mrs_Often, PeterT, thanks: yes, it is just the firmware I have in mind, and i am asking because there is no direct link to the Mini in the thread you mention, at least not for 2.3.1 for Mini that I am on - so I thought perhaps there were firmware files on the device that I could copy in case I wanted to re-instate the 2.3.1 version (which seems to be working fine so far).
I think the Glo version is also for Mini. But I'm not 100% sure.

Thank you - that is what I suspect, too, but as i am still unfamiliar with my Mini, I hate the thought of bricking it: it would be good if somebody would confirm they've installed that firmware version on their Mini.

I still have the box the reader came in, but there is no date that i can read anywhere on the box.
If memory serves, you've bought yours a little bit before I took one, albeit not in the same country. Mine came with 2.1.5 and updated when started for the first time. If you want, we can compare serial numbers by PM and try to see if yours is actually "older".

I just connected to WIFI and synced, no update so far. It's still 2.3.1 (r45611, 12/7/12)

Thanks samhy, I'll PM you my serial number - as for "that" I was referring to the link to the 2.3.1 firmware version for the Glo: I was wondering whether any Mini user had installed it successfully, in which case it would be part of my backup plan in case the 2.4.0 update goes awry.

For 2.4.0, for side loaded epubs, what are sort of display is there for reading progress? When it shows the progress bar (on the reading menu), does it have ticks for chapters so you know chapter progress?

Thanks.

I sideloaded 2.4.0 to my Glo, haven't tested it much yet but:

wrong-page bug seems to be fixed.
table of contents chapter updating bug seems to be fixed.

and a new bug: series sort is broken. The series information is displayed, but books are not listed in series order for either title or author lists.

Hi everyone,

Sorry for having been incommunicado for the last little while. v2.4.0 has started to roll out to some units. We will be doing a wider rollout next week.

Also, MDK is on vacation so the customary release notice was not posted to Mobile Read and none of us thought to do it. Thanks to the OP for starting the thread.

This release includes new Storage Management features which are meant to give you even more control over your library and syncing.

Even more new features and other improvements are scheduled for upcoming release so stay tuned.

@Mrs_Often: You should be able to filter your library to show only books that are on your device (i.e. hide the ones with the download arrows). This should help you with the clutter.

I'm happy to answer questions as I'm able.

Thanks!

Do you remember a question I asked a couple of weeks ago about whether title sorting should include the series info? Guess what prompted that. It's not a bug.

I confirm that sorts by the series does not work, it's annoying ...
the bug back to the right page apès standby or back to the main menu has been fixed.
Bug changing font size with each new chapter has been fixed.
The display and refresh pages appear faster.
The plug-in does not work.
Still no progress bar book and chapter to epub .. Snifff!
this is my first quick tests.
I have not tested the new features that I'm still struggling to understand their workings.
