Foxit eSlick now with eReader and DRM-free ePub

As noted by Musicman, Firmware Update 2.0 Build 1130 is now available:

Quote:
The free eSlick 2.0 Build 1130 Firmware Update includes some fantastic new features and has enhanced many of the features from previous firmware updates.

EPUB Support
Foxit eSlick now supports EPUB format, which is an XML-based format for reflowable digital books and publications. Now you can download EPUB eBooks onto your eSlick and the text will automatically display in an optimized format to fit the screen size.

PDB (commonly known as eReader) Support
Foxit eSlick now also supports eReader format, which is widely accepted by several software formats. eReader format is commonly used on mobile devices.

Image Support
Supports viewing image files in GIF, EMP, JPEG, and PNG format.

On-screen Virtual Keyboard
With this on-screen keyboard, you can use your navigation buttons to enter alphanumeric data in any text environment, including password entering and folder naming.

Working with Folders
eSlick now allows users to fully interact with a folder management system, enabling you to create a new folder as well as copy, move, and delete folders.

My Bookmark
A useful feature that empowers users to add customized bookmarks when reading PDFs, helping users to quickly return to marked pages to resume their readings.

Rendering Text in Landscape Mode
Now the text files can be rendered in landscape mode which allows you to view the screen horizontally.
The eReader support includes the credit card number based DRM, but ePub is DRM-free only. There is (unfortunately) the possibility of Foxit-specific ePub DRM, see http://forums.foxitsoftware.com/show...7&postcount=18.

Thanks for the heads up on this. Time for me to blow the dust off of my eslick. Hopefully this update will make me change my mind about the reader.

Interesting that they support the eReader DRM but not ePub DRM from Adobe. Perhaps they are not using the ADE SDK.... considering they write their own PDF rendering SDK I guess that would make some sense.

This then should support the B&N (nook) DRM also right?

Perhaps they can license B&N DRM for ePub, but I doubt this is included at present.

I would be interested in hearing more. I don't know anything about the eSlick, but I love Foxit Reader, they make the best PDF reading software I have ever used.

Adobe said that B&N DRM will be included in the next version of the mobile SDK.
