V3update Hanlin V2.10 2009-08-03 2009-08-04

http://www.filedropper.com/v3update-hanlin-210-20090803

Hello all,

unfortunately I was not able to download it.
May I ask the successful downloader to upload this firmware to rapidshare and post the link to this thread?
Thanks in advance.
Regards,

Here you go: http://rapidshare.com/files/26360484...90803.rar.html

For some reason it can only be downloaded 10 times, though.

Can anyone who tried both firmwares tell what are the differences between this last Hanlin update and the last lbook firmware beta?

I suspect they are identical releases. The slight differences in the products, V3 vs. V5 could be accomplished automatically in the code.

Hanlin uses FBREADER for TXT DOC and some others
LBOOK uses COOLREADER

TXT viewer on LBOOK is nicer....

There is a size and naming difference: the V3Update.bin is 55 mb while the V5Setup.bin is 127 mb.

Wow, that is the reason that the V3 can't do TTS. Looks like it probably has only 64M for firmware while the V5 has considerably more. I had forgotten about the TTS when I said they were the same.

I just put the new firmware on my EZReader. I am very happy with it so far. Of course, I will be even happier when the EReader firmware upgrade is here. Then I will be able to read all my ebooks on it.

New Firmware: One Step Forward, One Step Backward?

Been playing around with the new firmware, and I have to say that in my experience, the reflow works very well - for the RIGHT pdf. I read a lot of two column journal articles, and many of these render extremely well with the new firmware - whatever algorithm is being used is pretty good at breaking the text up and reflowing it in a logical way. The exception to this is if there is any kind of table on the page. And herein lies the rub...

Since the new firmware now only includes reflow, any pdf or text not capable being "reflowed" (ie. text with an embedded table) is only able to be viewed at original resolution. This means that many of the pdfs I used before which could be viewed at least reasonably well using the zoom function have been rendered useless by the new firmware.

So, in spite of my original delight when I reflowed a journal article, I have reverted to the older firmware, which lacks reflow, but at least allows viewing of pdfs containing tables.

To me, on of the great strengths of the EZReader is that it can read many different formats, including pdf. However, given the diversity of pdf formatting out there, firmware should include as many options as possible to make documents usable -ie users should be able to select reflow, zoom, or zoom and pan functions. Just my $.02.
