second beta 2.1.2 has arrived for Pro devices

For those that do not track the rus/ukr forum.

Version 2.1.2 beta for the Pro has arrived:

Link to the original thread:
http://www.the-ebook.org/forum/viewt...=744207#744207

The main differences from 2.0.6:
1. The new library, sorted by author, series and genres.
2. Fbreader with translation cache pages (remember the paging device during turn-off)
3. Multitasking (you can open simultaneously many books and to use applications)
4. Preview page when you call the quick menu go to the page number + memory last 4 open pages in a book.
5. Optimization sistsemnyh libraries.

For sensor devices:
1. A full handwritten notes in the books
2. A full-featured browser based on webkit


Google's translation of new features:

Implemented
1. The updated library
2. Handwritten notes in all the reader
3. Go to the last open pages
4. Multitasking - the Task Manager is available in the express menu or after clicking the status bar
5. Ability to turn off Bluetooth and Wi-Fi in the status bar (for devices with touch input).
6. The new web browser (QT)

Fixed
1. Saving your settings for the book fbreader
2. Displays the main menu instead of the last open book
3. Error when switching between profiles
4. Saving your settings when you exit the menu by pressing the Home
5. Navigating pages using a stylus in the active content in landscape orientation
6. Font smoothing in the "High Speed" in full screen update (fbreader)
7. Residual underscore after clicking on the link (fbreader)
8. Error when you connect A2DP-devices
9. Saving Bluetooth PIN for A2DP-devices
10. Speech reproduction through A2DP-device
11. The resumption of playing music through A2DP-device after removal from the pause
12. Resumption of A2DP-connect after the forced disconnect (for example, when returning to the zone of visibility of the device)
13. Accelerated the transition between menu items

It seems that there are a lot of good and interesting thing...
finally handwriting (i think for all format, not just epub), a very useful thing like multitasking... i'm very curious to try this new firmware. I hope that a fixed one can be available soon..

This is very reasonable piece of advice - not to hurry with new upgrades of firmware... In the best case scenario, I would make the back-up of all my books first, make sure that I have the current fw handy somewhere and then would upgrade to the new beta version. If it works - it works for you, if it doesn't - go back to the your current firmware.
Oh, also, don't forget to de-activate your device from ADE before upgrading, because you may encounter the problem with reading your ADE books, and then activate your reader again with new fw.

Good luck!

I've just peeked on the Russian forum, and the stable version should be out next Monday - the feeling I got is that things are actually moving for real over there, just hope I'm not wrong!

they still insist the "release candidate" (i.e. post alpha and beta testing) should be out tomorrow - if it does, it will be the first time in a very long time that they have said something and actually delivered on it - in which case I might even start being hopeful again

The RC is out and available for all "official" Beta-testers, but I signed not to release anything, so put your hopes on the GIK

Troll one question, as google translate is not very helpful. When they say

I dunno... i have upgraded with LIBRI firware from your previous link, and AdobeViewer for pdf files (and epub files) doesn't work. It cannot open pdf and epub files.

Handwritten notes doesn't still work for Djvu files. Multitasking works very well (it's really fast).
