Apparent new features of version 1.5 K4PC

I just highlighted a word with the new Kindle 4 PC Version 1.5 (32337) and noticed the following features I never noticed before:

1. The dictionary short definition I never noticed in K4PC before
2. Copy to the clipboard with title and page references (that feature is excellent for discussing books in chat rooms and forums).
3. Google the word (s)
4. Full definition
5. Report content error
6. Search this book
7. Wikipedia
8. Ability to add note and / or highlight which were present in prior version

I noticed that a new Amazon Download Manager was installed and a new folder created: User \ Downloads.

I noticed also that new MP3 songs purchased from Amazon are also downloaded by the Amazon Download Manager to the new folder with an *.amz extension. After downloading songs now one must use the new Amazon MP3 Installer to extract the song to the proper song folder from the Download folder. With songs now Amazon allows one to upload to the new Amazon cloud or one's PC. Amazon also installed a new Cloud Player with another contract to be approved before use.

One bug I noticed is that all books were set to the same date of usage:12/31/1969 at 7:00 PM.

Once opened, however, the current date and time were stamped on the book. If you sort by most recent book and have a lot of books, that could be a problem.

Thus, the K4PC 1.5 upgrade appears to be a major one with a lot of new features. I only read eBooks purchased from Amazon. Those, who buy ebooks in .mobi format from other book sellers and use Caliber and other DRM removal software, MAY encounter some problems since so many freatures are now dependent on Amazon, ONLY.

One new feature is that it breaks the current DRM removal tools.

We don't have this feature on the updated Mac version. On the other hand, our liberation tools still work.
