hmm, I thought they would implement page caching in this version or am I mistaken?

"The average battery life has been improved to 10 hours."

So that's like a 100% increase to 2.5? Not bad, but still very little compared to what E Ink manufacturers generally advertise.

Oops... Missed that bit out...

PDF

* Increased page turn speed. When reading a PDF document the next pages will be pre-loaded, this will substantially increase the page turn speed.

Announcement came before actual upgrade

So... I tried to download the 2.6 upgrade and... nothing. Called support (answered quickly, very polite, good English) and found that the announcement had been mailed before the upgrade was actually available. "Try later tonight," was the recommendation.

Why can't they wait until the download is ready before making an announcement...

"Later tonight" - it's now around 2pm in the Netherlands. So do the math

They've done this before...sent the email long before the new software arrives...seems to be a habit...^^

I haven#t received an email however, so maybe they only sent a few out.

Page-Resume in HTML sounds like good news too, but not really useful if they didn't add page-breaking...I'll have to check that once the update is there...I've been using PDF ebooks from the beginning since this features was missing...but I'd love to be able to use HTML...

Since the new software is now out, I created a sticky for you all to use as a place to comment on the new software.
