Differences between 2.0.1.668 and 2.3.1

What are the differences that we should look for in this upgrade to 2.3.1?

Most of the changes are listed in the first couple of pages of the 2.3.1 thread. The release notes are in http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...80&postcount=2. I added some other things in http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...2&postcount=17. The release notes are differences from 2.2.0. My list is includes some things that are in 2.2.0.

About the only other thing I can think of is the removal of the "back" button when reading. This was in the bottom left when you opened a book and took you back to whatever screen you opened the book from. I am finding it a major usability loss, but it seems to have gone unnoticed by everyone else.

I'm not sure what "2.0.1.668" is. I thought the Glos came with 2.1.2 and immediately updated to 2.1.5.

Nope, I miss it too. Already tapped the "n% read" display several times from habit.

I'm also seeing the bold-replacing-italics issue on Kobo Nickel. And suddenly covers seem to draw in very slowly, one at a time, on both the home screen and shelf views.

(Did a factory reset between 2.1.5 and 2.3.1, update was via wifi.)

You're right they did .... I copy/pasted another thread title incorrectly, and of course now would need the Mod to change it.

I can now change margins and the Mini doesn't seem to crash if too many changes to font etc. are made at once.

Coming from a Kindle 3, I spent 20 mins looking for a back button. Then discovered this post. How incredibly annoying that they had it and took it away. Please reinstate it if you are listening Kobo.
