Do not forget to read the thread on How to upgrade firmware

... and do not forget to backup your installed dictionaries, themes, fonts, translations, applications, logos, notes, books and whatever else you might have on your reader. Better safe than sorry ;-)

I'm afraid they still don't work for me. Just display as binary junk. If I right click and do a "Save As...", what should the file extension be? It doesn't work as a ZIP file!

Odd, both links worked for me.
And WinRar extracts them cleanly.
Not going to update right away since I want to do a full charge first...
(And to wait for the changelog.)

It's 7z, that's a free compression format that can be extracted with the free 7zip software. I don't know why they're using that, honestly.

Downloads OK with IE8 - looks like a Firefox "funny". So I need to install "7zip" to unzip it?

The built-in "unzipper" in Windows doesn't like it, and neither does my rather old version of WinRAR. Looks like it's time to upgrade to the latest version of WinRAR - it can (according to the website) handle ".7z" archives, as fjtorres confirms.

Could you try to persuade PB to re-upload them as ZIP files? It would make life a LOT easier for people .

I use 7-zip. Main reason is it can do Rar as well as Zip files and its free.

It's not a problem for "techies" like us. It's "Joe Public" who's going to have a significant issue with this. It seems madness to release a firmware upgrade in an obscure compression format that the popular operating systems can't handle natively.

It should be .7z
I have even managed to unpack it under Linux, after right click and selecting "save link target as" from menu
