New unofficial LBook firmware - for testing. Lots of features!

Ok, here it is:
http://downloads.sourceforge.net/cre...i-20090311.zip
and custom data files (optional) (skin, keymappings etc). If you want to customize CoolReader, place these files into crengine folder on SD card and try to modify: http://downloads.sourceforge.net/cre...0090311.tar.gz

Whats new:
New CoolReader (fb2/rtf files). Main features:
* Dictionary (either T9-like of virtual keyboard)
* Search
* Citation storing
* New customizable interface
* Customizable keys
* changes in TOC
* next/prev chapter

Default key mappings:
1 History back
1-long History forward
2 Goto page via TOC
3 Dictionary (with virtual keyboard)
3-long Dictionary (T9)
4/5 Prev/Next chapter
4/5-long First/Last page
6 Follow link
6-long Recent books list
7 Bookmarks list (long press of 1-8 set up bookmark, short press — goto bookmark)
8 Font size
8-long Page orientation
9/0 Prev/Next page
9/0 Prev/Next 10 pages
+/- Font size change

Dictionaries: in dict format (for example, look here:
http://mueller-dict.sourceforge.net/ and here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DICT ). Should be placed into dict forlder on SD.

Still there are some bugs.

I was really excited about it, so I've installed it.
I have noticed a few bugs, but if they will be fixed, it'll be the best and best-looking firmware ever!!
If it helps somehow to developers, heres my list;
- battery icon shows different status while reading a book (its fully charged, but it displays half charged in a book, but correctly - I think - when browsing in the booklist)
- dont know where to place my "crengine" folder, I've tried it on the SD, and in the internal too, but I couldn't change my font type to other than 3 "built in" ones (tested on fb2 books).
- cannot display and add bookmarks (again: fb2 books)

Still there are some bugs.
The most critical one: Last read position not stored. Should be fixed in a day or two.
Will you please let us know when the "last read position not stored" bug is fixed? This looks like something I'd like to try.

Thanks

Amazing. The reason that I prefer fb2 is the CoolReader

Anyone asked the author to enable support for fonts that lack Cyrillic glyphs, by the way?

impry, make directories crengine/fonts and fonts directories in SD card and place in both the .ttf files. Also, in crengine must be fb2.css and any other coolreader related files.

For fonts, simple "fonts" folder on SD card is enough.

All other bugs mentioned are already knows, but thanks for them.

I asked, but with no effect yet.

Thats so much better. Thanks for the update! Two things I've noticed:
- there are strange beeps while opening books
- if I lock the keyboard (power button) and then unlock it, the book forgets its current page where I left it

Otherwise It's really great!

Pressing 1 (back in history) once will return you to the proper place in book.

I noticed that the status bar comes with marks for the chapters again. It’s possible to configure that? With or without the marks, because it’s not very clear at the moment. Anyway, more important for me is the page numbers that it’s perfect, of course
