New Firmware for the Cybook Gen3 (1.1.708)

Hello to all,

this is my 1st post and I hope it's useful for this community.

Bookeen released a new firmware for the Gen3 today (Version 1.1.708).

Here's the changelog:
* New: hyphenation support in Mobipocket files.
* Regression fix: power consumption issue (build 685) fixed.

The update can be found as usual >>>here<<<.

Have fun

FreeBird

The Reflash worked flawlessly. No visible difference, other than that the version number is indeed now 708. Kudos to Bookeen for fixing the power bug so quickly (assuming this update does indeed fix it)!

Was it proved that there was a fault?

What do you mean proved? Yes, a lot of people did empirical experiments and showed that the battery time was only 50% of what it was with the previous release.

Hyphenation really does work, too. It only seems to "kick in" if there would be too much white space on a line without it, so it's best seen by increasing the font size. See the attached picture - the word "expression" has been hyphenated as "expres-sion" in the 6th line up from the bottom.

Can you disable hyphenation? The line starting with Kit looks dreadful and the old behaviour gives much better spacing for these kind of lines. The old behaviour wat to not right justify lines were the spacing become to much.

I must have missed those results, the only ones I saw were for the latest (as was) release, but no-one came back to any post I made asking whether the battery power on the back-grade was better.

If I missed it, I'm sorry...

You meant if the bug occured on the newest hardware? For some strange reason nobody with new hardware did a proper experiment and if they did it they did not report it back properly.

The 685 was especially well panned for having a 'poor' battery life, so much so that some/many went back to the earlier version.

No one then came back to the posts with any fresh experiment to confirm whether the battery life was better under that earlier version.
