Talking Embedded fonts on kindle now!

I think I must have blinked and missed something.
Have Amazon deployed a firmware update for the Kindle?

I'M SURE that last time I looked embedded fonts didn't work, but now halfway through a project that has fonts on the ePUB version they're showing up on the kindle.

There's an option in the font-size menu to turn on or off "publisher fonts" that I know I didn't see before.

Hooray for Amazon!! (never thought I'd be saying that).

Are there more updates? I think I noticed the line-height change too.

Do I DARE to hope that they're close to implementing KF8 on the standard Kindle?

Aha!

oohhhhh.... KF8.
I think they've also done something with the way table cells now span better across pages rather than just cut off. I was using that for a kind of keep-together for image captions. Looks like I might be able to do it properly on the Kindle now!!

Also... and I need to check, I think that it might affect the media queries. I noticed that I couldn't modify a class when using amzn-mobi but that might just be me.

This is all very exciting!

That would never work - I only have WIFI on my Kindle, how would I get my firmware updates?
