I hope you first guess is the right one, I would so love a Mini with light !!!!

Just to mention that Kobo appears to have done another of their firmware refreshes without changing the revision. On a factory reset, my Aura downloaded 2.6.1 but the build date has changed to 2013-June-17 from 2013-June-06. The build number has also changed.

The download links remain the same.

So far, I've noticed that .png images now display in .epub books but the 16 level greyscale .png in my test file looks like crap. TIFF images still don't display.

Regards,
David

It looks like the Touch firmware didn't change, it is the same size.

PDF and E-comic Refresh

I have a Kobo Glo and update it to 2.6.1b today, the problem with refresh in zoomed PDF an E-comic remains for me, but much less agressive than 2.5.1, while you hold the page to scroll, remains only one residual image. It disaperars after relese the screen, after the auto refresh.
Any one still having this problem?
Sorry for my english
Tks

I think murg meant the front page of the thread

But Kobo only changed the home screen on the Glo apparently so all other devices still use the "classic" screen.

I feel that the Phoenix has the same screen size as the Glo.

Hi guys,

I've downloaded and tried the FW 2.6.1 and I think I find a little bug with bookmarks.

Indeed, when you start your kobo, on the main page you can see yours last books with the number of bookmarks for each of them. Then you can see all bookmarks of a book in a single page and you can delete the ones you want in a menu.

Sometimes (very often) when you restart your kobo, the ones you have deleted are coming back !

Do you have seen the same bug ?

PS : sorry for my bad english, I'm french...
PS 2 : congratuation to developers for their nice work with firmwares

Yes, it is a bug I've seen and reported to Kobo. The issue is in the way that the bookmarks are stored for epubs in the main memory. They are stored in the device database and an annotations file. The annotations file is read when the book is opened and replace whatever is in the database. When you open the annotations list from the home screen, only the database is changed.

You won't see the problem if the epub is on the SD card or for kepubs. In both cases, the annotations are only written to the database.
