Version 2.2.0

So... here's another version of JBPatch.

It includes a few major changes to the framework, so the version number has been bumped to 2.2.0, and existing patches have been adapted to these changes.

From a user perspective, you probably won't perceive many of the changes, with two exceptions:

- the TTS patch now allows for user-friendly modification of the speakers' descriptions.

- there is a new patch (added by default to the JBPatch distribution), which allows for the Home screen, and collections, to be displayed graphically using a "Cover View" style.

Please see the first post for downloads and instructions for upgrading.

Brilliant work, ixtab... I can't believe how much better my Kindle is looking in less than a week's time.

Have you ever thought about accepting donations via e.g. PayPal? You definitely should do. Vielen, vielen Dank!!

OMG, ixtab, you are the bestest! )
The Cover View is awesome.

One question: Is it possible to enable auto-rotation via the accelerometer? I know this was possible by editing a config file but I've read that it doesn't work anymore after firmware 5.1. If you have some time could you please look into this?

Thank you for all your work!

Awesome, thank you very much.

All screen rotations does not work anymore, I wonder is it because of the new cover view mode?

I lack the vocabulary to translate the hyphenation part. The rest of the Spanish translation is all there. ixtab, your awesomeness makes me throw up rainbows and unicorns. Thank you! If you ever go to Buenos Aires I will gladly buy you a six-pack

In English, "throw up" is an idiom for "vomit". So ixtab makes you vomit rainbows and unicorns? Ouch!

Nope, it's because I broke the patch

Screen Rotation with coverview is not very nice. Deactivated this patch to have landscape for books, but not on the homescreen.

I meant just that. There is an ongoing internet meme that is about exactly that, http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/puking-rainbows .

Regarding hyphenation, I know what it is, but I lack the proper vocabulary to describe it in Spanish... I will probably end up asking someone that really knows, like a teacher.
