AaaHa!

Alright so after some emails and such with my reseller (and he with the software developers), we have found that this IS a bug in the current firmware version. The new version WILL have a fix for it. But there is no timeframe for delivery of that as of yet. In the meanwhile, he suggested using the .fb2 format. So far, it seems to be working (Calibre can do the conversion with no problems though the format isn't quite as nice as far as the headings and such) and my PB360 hasn't randomly changed pages for two days now. 2 days page-turn free! yea! Thanks, Jerry!

Sad but true: This is a known bug in the current firmware. But this only concerns ePubs read with Adobe Viewer, fbreader does just fine, thank you, so no need to convert your books to fb2.

FW update should come in March (mid to end of the month) There will be the newest FBReader version in that and the Adobeviewer bug will be gone. It is already gone in the 302 firmware, by the way.

Nice to hear that it will be fixed, but (for me at least) it's the most trivial of issues. Certainly not worth changing format for!

There will be CSS support for ePub in fbreader and mobi format will be better supported, too

The thing I'm most looking forward to is a wider range of font sizes (which I know is coming in the next upgrade); 3 sizes really isn't enough!

The Adobe Viewer on 302 has six sizes and smaller page numbers.
