Kindle Publisher Tools with KF8 support are now available for download

Just got this from Amazon:

Quote:
We're pleased to announce that Kindle Publisher Tools with Kindle Format 8 (KF8) support are now available for download. Kindle Format 8 is Amazon's next generation file format offering a wide range of new features and enhancements ' including HTML5 and CSS3 support that publishers can use to create all types of books. KF8 adds over 150 new formatting capabilities, including drop caps, numbered lists, fixed layouts, nested tables, callouts, sidebars and Scalable Vector Graphics - opening up more opportunities to create Kindle books that readers will love. Kindle Fire is the first Kindle device to support KF8 - in the coming months KF8 will be rolled out to our latest generation Kindle e-ink devices as well as our free Kindle reading apps.

Publishers have created thousands of KF8 titles already and customers are enjoying the improved formatting and reading features across all types of books. Additionally, KF8 features such as Kindle Panel Views and Kindle Text Pop Up enable great fixed layout books including graphic novels, comics and children's books. We've updated our Kindle Publishing Guidelines to help publishers get started with Kindle Format 8.

Please download the new versions of KindleGen (www.amazon.com/kindleformat/KindleGen) and Kindle Previewer (www.amazon.com/kindleformat/KindlePreviewer) to get started today. More information about KF8, Kindle Publishing Tools & Guidelines can be found at http://www.amazon.com/KindleFormat.

For Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) users, KDP is ready to receive your KF8 books. In addition to accepting books in the KF8 format, KDP is releasing a new KDP Simplified Formatting Guide to help you take advantage of the new features offered by KF8. Go to https://kdp.amazon.com/self-publishi...icId=200798080 for more information on publishing KF8 books via KDP.

Thanks,

The Kindle Team

With this tool yourself or publishers can make fancier looking eBooks with and when your Kindles support KF8.

I created a KF8 book and posted pics at this thread.

Thank you for that. I like the looks of the pages you posted. It would be nice to see books like that. It would be even nicer if it comes to the KK.
