My KF hd updated itself a few minutes ago. I can't tell what it does yet (if anything).

Mine also upgraded to version 7.4.6 and this time it left Location Services off avoiding a battery drain.

Here is what it did:

The software update includes the following enhancements:

•Language Support for Brazilian Portuguese
You can now change your device language to Brazilian Portuguese.

•Download New Keyboard Languages
Download keyboards in different languages to use on your Kindle Fire.

•Multicolor Highlights
Highlight a word or passage in your Kindle books using additional colors.

•Share Notes & Highlights from a Print Replica Textbook
E-mail your personal notes and highlights to classmates.

I wonder if that last one will enable one class genius to send all his notes to his less smart friends.

I don't see enough benefit in those enhancements for me personally to warrant having to go through the whole rooting process again, but I thank everyone for posting the details. Saves me from searching!

How do you register that you have received an update? I accidently found out that I could get a Danish keyboard layout by reading this thread.

I noticed when my broadband registered 800 MB for the previous day rather than the normal 200 MB or so. I then checked and found the software release had changed.
