New Kindle Update?

I just bought a book and turned on the wireless for the 1st time in almost 25 days and when I put my Kindle to sleep, it updated the software. I have not read about a new update, so it came as a surprise when my Kindle went into update mode. It still say version 2.0.3 (327610024). Has anyone else Kindle been updated recently?

That version was released a bunch of months ago. It has some bugs solved (supposed) and disable USB network without the USB Network Hack and disable Speech on those books that has Speech disabled.

For me it is a backward step.

I dont know when it was released since, like you, I keep wispernet off to conserve battery... though it looks like we are behind the curve Mine also says 2.03 and i am sure that it was updated in the last day or so since I happened to turn the wireless on...

Same thing happened several weeks ago. When I posted about it, I got this response.

This is new. DX was 2.1.0.

Norsemen reported having 2.0.4 a couple weeks ago.

BTW, BlogKindle is a different blog than the official Amazon Kindle's Blog.

Those would be really nice to have. Does anyone have a list with new/improved features in this version?

Hah, I think I have a better chance trying to reach the end of the universe than Amazon creating such an update...

Probably so. It's kinda like holding a lottery ticket and enjoying the fantasy of richness...and then it all ends in a shattering second when they announce the numbers (and YAKUWF - Yet Another Kindle Update Without Folders).

The source for 2.1.1 has been out for a few days - but evidently there's no interest by any of the uber-geeks to dig in and see what's changed. I've let my DX sit in standby for two days (sans font hack) and no update. Oh well. I'm going to re-hack and turn the radio off. Eventually it will show up on Amazon's site.

Truthfully, Amazon has not shown much of a track record in adding new features. The K1 was finally updated when the K2 was introduced and only to encourage marketing of the K2 via whispersync.

I wouldn't hold my breath for folders on the existing products. Not at least before the next major hardware revision.

Source code published by Amazon contains only the Open Source part, that is kernel, boot code and support libraries.

Central things like content browser, book viewer and so are java proprietary apps and Amazon does not publish the source of that.

Ah... Drat. Guess we'll have to wait for field reports. Doesn't seem that very many have actually gotten it, so not sure what to make of that.
