Well PDF reflow is my first choice, but it does not always render the PDF well. So I find myself using PDFLRF still, but lest frequent.

One of the bigger changes is with their large file improvement. I can create one large LRF file with PDFLRF instead of having to break them up into 2MB files.

I also find myself usign sony Library more as they LRF books load MUCH faster than calire since the new firmware

Personally I think PDF reflow is a step forward and a step backwards. If they had kept their implementation of removed the margins on PDF books 90% of the PDF I read would not need any changes, due to their PDF enhancements.

I find that I started using the Poor man's PDF editor much more since all I want to do is remove the margins.

My only change has been to convert everything to EPUB instead of LRF. I also now delete from the device books that I will not read again.

To me, the EPUB books load the fastest, and when changing fonts they also seem to work the fastest.
