Software Update! Version 1.3 now available!

From the Nook Color forum on bn.com

Starting today, NOOK Color owners have access to firmware version 1.3, a software update that enhances the best-in-class NOOK Newsstand by offering even more interactive versions of the country’s favorite magazines and newspapers. 

In addition to this, the software update includes some system improvements such as the option to password protect the web browser, improvements to the Last Page Read feature, and the removal of the Good Housekeeping Cookbook.

You can sideload the update from here: www.nookcolor.com/update. The over the air (OTA) delivery to customers connected to Wi-Fi is beginning this week.

Yes - I saw that as well. I guess that it was REALLY important to them. wish B&N had changed the stock reader some like adding landscape mode and better PDF support, etc.

I was wondering if anyone is experiencing this:

I downloaded the update manually and after it finished installing I noticed it added about four samples of books automatically to my home screen. I archived them all since I was not interested in any of them. Hopefully, this doesn't keep happening. I had two samples added to my Home screen and when I refreshed my library it added two more.

Also, the synchronization between nook str and nook color is not working for me at all although this feature has never worked for me in the past. However, since the initial post said "improvements in Last Page read feature" I thought maybe this had been sorted out.

Don't know about the syncing problem, but the additional samples were not part of the upgrade. They were samples that they happened to add to everyone's list the same day that the update became available. This was discussed on the bn.com forum and the people there was also archiving the books.

Synchronization between the Nook Touch and NC has always worked fine for me. Just make sure you sync the library after you close the book on the one reader, and sync the library on the other reader before you open the book there.

The NC came in Fall 2010, whereas the Touch came in Spring 2011.

I use manual nooter as well. Last month, my Nook stopped downloading Barnes and Noble purchases, so I am doubtful it will download updates.

I don't care about the cookbook one way or the other and I don't care about whatever the update did for magazines.

Can anyone think of any other reason to install it? Otherwise, I think I'll just keep things the way they are and stay off wifi to avoid it updating automatically.

I did read something about it speeding up the responsiveness of the device in general.
