The fonts are looking good on my PDFs. The ones I create are perfect at the smallest size but I do format them to the ereader screen. PDFs that I have that are created as normal documents are good but looks like as you enlarge the fonts you loss the tables.
I have not tried links or bookmarks I will leave that up to others.

After check some of my different ebooks I personally do not notice that much diffenence in the font sizes. I have noticed that my PDFs do look better and the reflow seems to be better. I do not have any ebooks with links to check that out and I do not use bookmarks at least at this time.

I certainly have not yet found any differences between this latest firmware and the previous one. The issues I have are still there and links still don't work in epubs.

Bookmarking in epubs has changed for the worst in the last few firmware versions. You can no longer go to a bookmark by pressing the number button associated with it. You can no longer set a bookmark by long pressing that button. This was a feature I used a lot and now instead of a single press to do what I want, I'm having to do multiple pressing and I can't store a bookmark where I want.

Also broken in the last few firmware versions in the ability to display a TOC using the embedded font. This really breaks my ability to have a foreign language book with a usable TOC.

I must loaded the new firmware and I thought that the Epub and PDF books looked formatted nicer. To my eye the fonts are improved. I played with book marking in Epub and finally figured it out (not as intuitive as I would like).

Since my first firmware, things have improved quite a bit. Between the current and the last one, I have not seen any difference at all. I'm sure something has changed, I just have not figured out what it is.
