Not really a mirror - LBook V3 firmware (Ukrainian analogue of Hanlin V3), but mostly the same.

Hi.
torbich, thanks for the link. I've used 1.26 from jinke but I see the new lbook firmware offers more options in the fb2 reader. Though the clock doesn't work exactly right.

Yes, the clock doesn't work exactly right, but, anyway, it is useful. You need to note that clock display is changed only with a page change, and you need to set up clock after each reset. But this easily can be done from the menu.

Any ideas why it doesn't recognise frutiger font? No matter which firmware, jinke or lbook. In .css tried font-family: "Frutiger Linotype", "FrutigerLinotype", "Frutiger"; to no avail. Also in the menu the font it doesn't appear. The same applies for some other fonts. It requires some special naming? Edit the font? Something else... Verdana is similar font but for years and in multiple devices I use frutiger and I like it best for reading.
Thanks.

It reads books that are archived in .zip/.rar files. Well, not so important providing it supports SD cards up to 4GiB of size, more than enough space for ebooks.

That's very cool. Specially to read comics in CBZ and CBR formats (ZIP and RAR, respectively)!

Does that Hanlin V3 firmware work in a BeBook (I think it's the same machine)?

Most likely, all firmwares are alike and the hardware is the same. Though, lbook for EU citizens probably is cheaper (290 + 20 shipment about) vs 330. And you get 1G SD card, USB card reader etc. I have the lbook and at the moment I use the jinke firmware. Btw, I don't think e-ink readers are suitable for comics yet.

As the author of the CoolReader (soft used for rtf, fb2 and txt in LBook) explained, now only those fonts shown in the menu of this plugin, which contain Cyrillic characters. Others - not. I think hi changed it in a few days.

Cannot say anything about changing fonts from main bookshelf.
