[B]Is there an ETA for the next firmware rel.[B]

Any eta for when a new firmware might get release? I have owned many different readers in the past, and I have never complained, but this is amazing that kobo is not more aggressively putting a fix out there for all the bugs.

It's only been a month and a half (or so). With the Christmas break in there.

Still, they have been averaging between 1 and 3 (or 4) months between releases.

...err that's not quite true, one of their guys did tell us, elsewhere on this forum, towards the end of last year, to expect an update shortly. Mind you it did take about another month or so to appear, if I remember correctly.

But, yes they don't usually tell us, but surely then it comes as a nice suprise ?

And once the firmware is released, we wait, somewhat patiently, for the firmware release to be pushed to our devices while reading about how happy or unhappy the rest of the world is with the update.

It could be that definite dates are not given in case they cannot be met. I can only speak from an iOS perspective but we tend not to publicly disclose dates for a couple of reasons, one of the main ones being that one the app is submitted to Apple for approval, we cannot say exactly when it will be approved. Typically it's around 14 days, but it could be sooner or later than that, it's in Apple's hands at that point.

Another reason would be that we may find some issue that takes longer than expected to address, or a new features function has to be changed, again delaying things.
