There probably won't be anything noticeable on the Touch or the Mini.
I am hoping for the library view without images.

It is now slightly bigger than the minimum margin on the sides.

Unfortunately, it isn't an option on the Touch or Mini. The new interface is only on the Glo and Aura HD. These do have a text only list, but all it does is remove the covers. You don't get more books per screen.

Thank you, David. I just tried to set it in the configuration file, of course, without effect.

Kobo release firmware updates slowly. The release is by partners or something like that. They start with a couple of the small ones and then expand. And I think they start with Canadian partners. It could be a week or more before the rest of us see the update.

It's ridiculous that they can't just provide a download link. Kobo needs to step up their game. Impatiently awaiting this, as all the fonts I like to use have that cursed italics bug. Hopefully someone will capture it soon and post it in the developers section.

Thank you davidfor. I know that, but in the past I got the updates almost immediately after release. I think I got spoiled . Time to learn to be patient

I suspect that they changed how updates were distributed a few months back, after many users were having trouble downloading them.

There's one thing I don't understand: there is the option to hide the covers from the list view, but always 5 entries each screen. If hiding covers don't allow to stuff 7-8 entries in a screen it's not useless?
Like the Home icon in the home screen, silly GUI design.

Maybe you can see more text of long book titles, before they fade out with "..." Maybe paging through the library is quicker.

Slow updates limits damage if the impossible happens and a bug is found in the update.
